A crown is essentially a cap that covers the tooth and restores it to a natural look and feel. There are a number of reasons a crown may be needed, including: a cosmetic desire, root canal, decay, fillings, or a tooth that is broken or chipped. At Bella Vita Dentistry in Trophy Club, TX cosmetic and general dentist, Dr. Joshua Foreman makes crowns in his office that are made with porcelain or zirconia to match the natural teeth, so the patient only needs one appointment. These crowns are extremely durable, strong, and will last many years if the patient cares for them with proper dental hygiene. Each crown is custom colored and fit to blend into the patient’s natural teeth. Dr. Foreman helps every patient pick out the best look for them so they’ll be good to go in no time.
Types of Crowns We Offer
Porcelain crowns are high quality replacements for missing or extracted teeth that caps over the tooth to give it a natural look and feel. As porcelain is extremely durable, your crowns will last a long time with the proper care of your teeth. You will be fitted for the crown, and matched for just the right color to blend into your smile. You may need a crown to cosmetically enhance your smile, to fix a broken or chipped tooth, to restore a tooth after a root canal therapy, to repair decay, or to replace an existing crown that needs an update.
Using the Planmeca PlanScan® technology, you can have a same-day crown experience at Bella Vita Dentistry. There is no need to make several trips back and forth to the dentist to have a crown completed start to finish within a single visit our office. Ask Dr. Foreman about this time-saving technology to get you in and out of the dental chair, and back to your normal routine.
Dental Crowns Reviews
"There are many reasons Bella Vita is the best place to go to the dentist, beyond the beautiful atmosphere, Gina is the best reason! She's so incredibly good at her job, very personable and makes you feel comfortable throughout the appointment. All of the staff seemed intentional in making you feel like you weren't just another patient. Dr. Foreman is high tech and a perfectionist so I knew I was in good hands and am so happy overall with my smile. My expections were exceeded! I could never go back to my old school dentist experience. Thank you Bella Vita!!!!"- A.E. / Google / Jan 21, 2017
"Root canal and crown yesterday. Hard to believe any of the stories I have heard about people fearing this procedure as it was relatively easy and nice to get the crown the same day. Great team there too. Thanks to all!"- C.K. / Yelp / Jan 25, 2016
"Great service, state-of-the-art equipment, great atmosphere. I was thrilled that Dr. Foreman was able to finish two difficult root canals in one sitting. Thankfully, they had all the state-of-the-art tools available to make sure it happened. It's also nice that the crowns are made right then and there - no temporaries and having to go back for the permanents. (Who has time for that??) Also, the little comforts were nice. I got to choose my music and I was offered a bottle o...f water. And I didn't have to wait to be seen. (I love that!) Thank you Dr Foreman and Lisa! You were both great!"- L.H. / Facebook / Aug 03, 2016
"Dr. Foreman is the BEST dentist I have ever seen. I have had such bad experiences with dentistry and had been reluctant for years to go to a dentist. I finally made an appointment to get a lot of work done. It was completely pain free!! Seriously, pain free. He and his staff are so professional and caring. You do not feel embarrassed by the condition of your teeth, they are more than willing to help you get a beautiful and healthy smile. If you are afraid of dental pain, or feel embarrassed, I know how you are feeling. Make and appointment to see Dr. Foreman and his staff at Bella Vista Dentistry, you will not regret it. Please don?t wait! I am so glad that I did! Only regret is I did not do it sooner. Shawn Bradford"- S.B. / Google / May 17, 2016
To place a dental crown, the tooth must first be prepared be removing any existing decay, old fillings, and a small amount of enamel. Using 3-D imaging, we will create a digital representation of the tooth to help prepare the crown. With advanced technology, a crown can sometimes be created and bonded all in the same day, which will allow the patient to avoid wearing a temporary crown. This procedure typically takes about 2 hours with little to no down time afterward.
Best Candidates for Crowns?
A dentist may recommend a crown for treatment in the following situations: to cover a severely cracked or damaged tooth, to restore a fractured tooth, to cover a dental implant, to replace a large filling when there isn’t enough natural tooth remaining, to cover a misshapen or discolored tooth, to cover a tooth after a root canal, to protect a weak or fractured tooth, and to attach a bridge.
How Long Do Crowns Last?
Dental crowns typically last 15 – 20 years before they become damaged or need to be replaced. It is important that the patient maintain a healthy dental regimen to extend the life of crowns.
Dental Crown Benefits?
Dental crowns help to alleviate pain as well as cracks, chips, and strains on the teeth. For many patients, dental crowns give them a boost of confidence once they see their restored smile. Today, most dental crowns are composed of porcelain or ceramic, which maintains a natural look and texture, matching the patient’s smile.
