Repairing Damaged Teeth with Dental Crowns in Memorial Houston
If your tooth experiences a crack, significant damage, or extensive decay, a crown can restore function and appearance. Dental crowns are created to mimic natural tooth structure in strength and appearance. Also referred to as a cap, a crown fits snugly over the portion of a tooth that extends above the gum line.
Dental Crown Process
Usually, patients can receive a crown in just two visits. At the first appointment, Dr. O’Keefe will prepare your tooth, take impressions of your bite (occlusion) for the dental lab, and fit you with a temporary crown. Our American-based dental lab will create your custom crown from fine dental materials, and you will return to our office for final placement.
