Patients in Houston ask about the benefits of dental crowns

Dental crowns are placed on teeth to restore health and beauty to the smile. Crowns serve many purposes from protecting weak teeth to covering permanent tooth discoloration. The team at Vivid Dental in Houston is often asked about the benefits of dental crowns. We are happy to explain them.

The advantages of dental crowns

We use dental crowns to:

  • Protect teeth after root canal therapy
  • Protect weak teeth from breaking
  • Cover permanently stained teeth
  • Cover misshapen teeth
  • Hold together cracked teeth
  • Secure dental bridges
  • Restore chipped teeth
  • Restore severely decayed teeth

Exploring dental crown treatment

We recommend scheduling a consultation to explore if a dental crown is the right solution for you. At the appointment, we will thoroughly examine the mouth, teeth, and gums. We may use an intraoral camera to look at the affected tooth. We can then display images on the computer screen to discuss any condition. We may take x-rays to examine the jawbone, which is followed by devising a treatment plan.


We then take impressions, which are used to fabricate customized crowns. Depending on the location of the affected tooth, we provide different types of crowns. Porcelain fused to a strong metal base may be ideal for the posterior teeth. Since these teeth endure heavy forces for chewing, the metal base provides additional support. All-ceramic crowns add natural beauty to the teeth that show when smiling. Ceramic is a strong, durable, and stain resistant material that blends nicely with the smile.


For treatment, we can place a temporary dental crown until the final customized one is completed. After your final crown arrives, we will check it for precise fit and appearance before placement. Your dental crown can last more than a decade with good oral hygiene habits. Therefore, it is important to brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss before bedtime. We recommend visiting the team at Vivid Dental for oral examinations, cleanings, and x-rays when necessary.


Do you want to explore your candidacy for dental crown treatment? We would love to meet with you during a consultation. Schedule it by calling (281) 809 4902 today.
