About Dental Crowns

If a tooth is damaged or worn down, it can be strengthened and protected by a high-quality dental crown. Sometimes called a cap, custom-made dental crowns fit snugly over your tooth while matching the color of your surrounding teeth for a seamless and natural look. At MINT dentistry, we offer crowns to treat large cavities, protect weak teeth, restore cracked teeth, and cover discolored teeth. Our team uses high-quality porcelain crowns that look natural and improve your overall smile. We love that our patients have the sexiest teeth in Friendswood, TX. Schedule an initial consultation at MINT dentistry to learn more about how a crown can help you get sexy teeth.

Best Candidates for Dental Crowns

A crown can help in several different cases. Dental crowns can be needed to keep a tooth (weakened by decay) from breaking or they can hold parts of a tooth together that have already cracked. Crowns can also be used to treat a tooth that is worn down or loose. They can serve as support when a dental cavity has become too large for a regular filling, to hold a dental bridge in place, and to mask teeth that are misshapen or discolored. MINT dentistry crowns are made with top-quality materials and are secured with advanced technology to make sure you have a beautiful result that lasts a long time.

What to Expect with Dental Crowns

During your consultation, we will get digital x-rays and impressions of your teeth so your crown can be custom made. A temporary restoration can be placed over your tooth as the dental lab makes your custom crown. When your restoration is complete, our support staff will make another appointment. After settling into a massaging treatment chair, you'll be offered a pair of stylish MINT sunglasses and Beats headphones to help keep you comfortable. First, the treatment area will be numbed with a local anesthetic. Stronger sedation methods may be available to help you feel more comfortable during the procedure if you have anxiety about the process. Once you're ready, a skilled dentist will prepare the tooth by removing any areas of decay, and if needed, filing down the tooth. Then, the restoration will be attached to the implanted post or cemented to your natural tooth. Once your crown is set in place, we will adjust the fit so your bite is correct.

Dental Crowns Treatment Aftercare

If only local anesthesia is used, you should be able to leave after your restoration is set to resume your day. A member of our team will teach you how to care for your porcelain crown, including how to clean it and what foods you need to avoid. We strongly suggest all patients come back for a follow-up visit and get their dental bite assessed after getting a crown to make sure their alignment is comfortable. Bite complications are difficult to avoid because the patient’s mouth is numb but can be easily fixed. During your exams at MINT dentistry, a skilled dental professional will check your restoration and adjust the fit as needed so it feels comfortable. Your dentist will talk to you about when the crown needs to be repaired or replaced, but with proper care, a restoration should last for many years. If you have any concerns about your crown (for example, it feels loose or gets knocked out), contact our office right away. Don't try to fix it or put it back in because this can lead to a problem, like an infection or improper fit that affects your bite.

The MINT Commitment

For patients using dental insurance, a portion of the cost of your crown might be paid for. After speaking with your insurance company, our office can better estimate your remaining bill. During your consultation, your dentist can help you determine the best material for your crown to fit your goals and budget. Your dentist will also go over payment options, including the MINT Discount Plan, to make your treatment more affordable. MINT dentistry is committed to giving all our patients sexy teeth. Our custom crowns and restorations are crafted from high-quality porcelain material available to the dental industry.
