Dental Crowns Shavano Park, TX

We offer a variety of dental bridge procedures.

Restoring compromised teeth
Bio-compatible composite resin fillings provide a fast, economical, cosmetic solution for minor damages and small cavities. However, resin is not as strong as tooth enamel, so its protective and strengthening qualities are minimal. If a large amount of tooth structure is missing or damaged, or the tooth is weak, a porcelain restoration is preferable. The type of porcelain crown depends on the nature and severity of the damage.

Full crowns fit over teeth like caps, covering all exposed surfaces. They require the most tooth preparation, and provide the greatest strength. A full crown is likely to be recommended for a broken or root canal-treated tooth.

Replacing missing teeth
If you have a gap in your smile to fill, a bridge or specially designed crown may be called for.

A traditional bridge consists of a false tooth between two crowns, forming a solid unit. The crowns are attached to existing teeth adjacent to the gap, positioning the false tooth exactly where the natural one was.

An implant-supported bridge consists of several false teeth. It is attached to implants, and does not require an alteration to natural teeth.

We use high-strength, bio-compatible dental ceramics such as e-max porcelain and zirconia to deliver the healthiest and most beautiful smiles possible. You don’t have to live with a gap in your smile, or an unattractive, painful, damaged tooth. We are here to help! Schedule your appointment for dental bridge procedures today.
