If you have a problem with a tooth that a simple filling can’t fix, a dental crown is an excellent option. It can cover the tooth and restore it to its normal shape and size, while also making it both stronger and more functional. Dental Crowns can:
- Cover a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t enough natural tooth left.
- Protect a weak tooth from breaking or replace one that’s already broken.
- Cover teeth that are off-color or crooked.
- Cover and restore a dental implant.
There are several kinds of dental crown materials, from metal to tooth-colored. Your South Texas Dental professional can explain the differences and help you choose the one that’ll work best for you.
And remember, crowns, like most of our other services, are covered by Medicaid, CHIP and most dental insurance.
