Dental Crowns in Pasadena, TX
What are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns are fixed prosthetic dental appliances that serve different functions. Unlike dentures that need to be removed for daily cleaning, fixed appliances are attached permanently to surrounding teeth or implants. They are cemented in place and can only be removed by a dental professional.
Benefits of Dental Crowns
Porcelain crowns are sometimes called caps. They are used to repair and restore the appearance and function of damaged teeth. Crowns are usually made of porcelain or a metal bonded with porcelain. A quality dental crown that has been applied correctly, will strengthen impaired teeth, improve your chewing ability and enhance your smile. Crowns are often used on back teeth that have undergone a root procedure to stabilize the structure of the teeth.
A smooth, custom-made porcelain crown that fits in well with the surrounding teeth can help restore confidence and give the patient renewed pride in his or her smile. You will look better and have improved function.
