Dental Crowns

Dental Crowns in El Campo, TX

One of the most common restorations that we place to preserve natural teeth is dental crowns. Crowns can protect against a damaged or weak tooth and extend its lifespan. At this moment, you may be wondering, “Do I need a dental crown?” When you turn to our dental team here in El Campo, TX, we will perform a thorough evaluation to determine if crowns are the ideal restorative dentistry for your smile. We will discuss any and all options with you to ensure that you are taking an active part in your own oral health and the treatments you receive.

Reasons for a Crown
There are many reasons why our dental team may recommend that you get a dental crown. Some of these reasons include:

  • Your tooth is cracked or broken
  • You need to undergo root canal therapy
  • You have a severely worn down or weak tooth
  • You have a large, worn filling that can no longer support a tooth
  • You have a severely discolored or malformed tooth
  • You are replacing a missing tooth with a dental bridge or implant

The purpose of a crown is to be able to preserve your natural tooth whenever possible.

Crafting a Crown
It can take 2-3 trips to our office to get your dental crown. Once we’ve determined that a tooth needs a crown, we will take a mold of your teeth to send to a dental lab. The dental lab will use this mold to create a crown that fits perfectly over the tooth. We will also need to shave and prep the tooth to make room for the custom restoration. The crowns we offer will also be the exact color of your smile, so you never have to worry about how your crown will fit in with the rest of your smile. The shade, shape, and color will always mimic your natural teeth for the best esthetic results.

Placing a Crown
While you are waiting for your permanent crown to be made, our dental team will place a temporary crown over the tooth to protect it in the meantime. It can take a couple of weeks for a dental lab to create your crown, but once it’s ready, you will come back into our office, so we can do a final fitting and cement the crown into place.

If you are wondering whether your smile could benefit from dental crowns, our El Campo, TX, family dental practice is here to answer all of your questions. To schedule a consultation, call us today at (979) 543-2737!

We love to hear what our patients think!

Dr. Cheng and her staff are fabulous! I have seen her several times for multiple fillings and a partial crown, and each time they have gone out of their way to ensure my comfort and to make me feel calm and relaxed. They are friendly, yet always professional- I feel confident trusting my chompers to them. El Campo is lucky to have a dentist like Dr. Cheng!

Dr Cheng is always friendly and thorough when it comes to your dental care. In the years that my family have been a patients at this office we have always been treated respectfully and in a timely manner. The staff is always friendly and there to help when needed. TF

I am usually scared to go to the dentist. Dr Chang was sooo very kind and gentle.

This group of ladies are always so kind! Janet and Angie at the front desk are the first women you see, and they are always so pleasant! Sarah is my hygienist and she’s so sweet and great at what she does! Love Dr. Cheng! She is so soft spoken and amazing at what she does. I didn’t go to the dentist for 8+ years and my mouth was full of cavities before I saw Dr. Cheng, and she fixed me right up and never made me feel judged. She also removed my wisdom teeth and I recovered within a couple days! I highly recommend these ladies!! ❤️❤️❤️
