Overview

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

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.

Same-Day Crowns

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.

Treatment

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.
