Dental Crowns Houston, Texas 77074
Crowns are a restorative procedure used to improve a tooth’s shape or to strengthen a tooth.
What are Crowns?
Crowns or onlays (partial crowns) are needed when there is insufficient tooth strength remaining to hold a filling. Unlike fillings, which apply the restorative material directly into the mouth, a crown is fabricated away from the mouth. A crown is created in a lab from your child’s unique tooth impression, which allows a dental laboratory technician to examine all aspects of your child’s bite and jaw movements. The crown is then sculpted just for your child so that his or her bite and jaw movements function normally once the crown is placed.
