Dental Crowns and Bridges at Vivid Dental, Houston TX

Restorative dental care focuses on strengthening and restoring teeth that have been damaged. At Vivid Dental, we look for the most conservative treatment options available for every situation, which in some cases is a dental crown. Dental crowns are custom-made pieces that completely cover a tooth, allowing a natural appearance and fully functional chewing. Your dentist at Vivid Dental, Houston TX makes use of extensive knowledge and state-of-the-art tools to determine which treatment is in the best interest of each patient. Before recommending a dental crown, an intraoral camera may be used to give the patient a view of the affected tooth structure, so that there is a clear understanding of the need for treatment.

Our intent is to preserve as much natural tooth structure as possible, and build upon what remains to recreate the tooth's surface. Dental crowns facilitate this goal in situations such as:
  • After a root canal therapy, when the tooth may become brittle
  • When a tooth has been broken
  • When extensive damage has occurred due to a large cavity
  • When a metal filling has cracked, fracturing the tooth
  • When a dental bridge is needed to replace a lost or extracted tooth
Our patients benefit from aesthetically pleasing dental crowns, which may be fabricated from porcelain fused to a strong metal base, or from ceramic. All-ceramic crowns are ideal for front-tooth restorations, looking natural and beautiful. Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns are used on molars and teeth that are not fully visible in the smile. These posterior teeth are imperative for chewing and mastication. The metal base provides added support for the heavy forces used on these teeth.

Crowns are also an essential component of a dental bridge, which rebuilds function and beauty after a tooth has been lost or extracted. The bridge appliance consists of two dental crowns flanking an artificial tooth. The dental crowns are fitted over the teeth on each side of an empty space, providing stability for the prosthetic that rests on the gums.

Vivid Dental is committed to helping you retain your best smile. Contact us for your next dental appointment.
