Dental Crowns & Fixed Bridges in Garland, TX
Dental crowns are restorations that fit completely over the top of damaged, cosmetically flawed, or anchoring teeth. They are shaped to perfectly replace any lost dental structure and fit seamlessly into the smile line and bite. We offer dental crowns in a variety of materials including gold, porcelain bonded to metal, and ceramic. Each of these materials has advantages. Gold crowns offer the most durable results with the least wear against surrounding teeth. Porcelain bonded to metal crowns offer the durability of gold crowns with a more cosmetic appearance. All-ceramic crowns are the most cosmetic option. They maintain a natural appearance even after years of wear. Additionally, these all-ceramic restorations are the only option that is effective for those patients who have metal allergies. Contact Grin Dental to find out more or schedule an appointment in our Garland dental office. We welcome patients from Sachse, Murphy, Wylie, and other nearby communities.
We use dental crowns in a number of situations including the following:
- Dental restoration – patients who experience decay or trauma too severe for more conservative treatments like fillings may need a dental crown to fully restore the form and function of their damaged tooth
- Cosmetic enhancement – patients with a single tooth that has severe cosmetic irregularities may consider placing a dental crown over an individual flawed tooth rather than undergoing more advanced orthodontic or cosmetic solutions
- Tooth replacement – crowns can be attached to surrounding teeth in order to support between one and three replacement teeth, and up to four consecutive teeth can be restored with a dental implant supported fixed bridge
