Dental Crowns

Time and other factors can damage our teeth, leaving them worn down and exposed to various dental issues. 

In these cases, Drs. David and Reagan Bonner can use dental crowns to restore teeth that are decayed, broken, or misshapen. 

Discover how dental crowns can save, protect, and whiten your smile under the care of Bonner Family Dentistry in Dumas, TX. 

What Are Dental Crowns? 

Dental crowns are a type of cap that fits snugly over the top of a tooth. Dental crowns offer protection for damaged teeth, restoring a tooth's shape and size while hiding any discoloration.

Unlike a filling, crowns cover the entire visible portion of your tooth and can treat more widespread decay or damage. Dentists may use crowns in a variety of procedures including root canals, dental bridges, and dental implants

When to Consider Dental Crowns

Dental crowns have several uses and benefits for your oral health. Dentists use crowns to: 

  • Restore broken or decayed teeth
  • Protect teeth from further damage 
  • Secure dental bridges in place 
  • Protect a tooth following a root canal 
  • Cover misshapen or discolored teeth
  • Reinforce a tooth with worn-down restorations
  • Cover dental implants to replace individual missing teeth

The Bonner dentistry practice is hands down the best I’ve ever used. They are warm, helpful, professional and above all superb dentists. Their work is excellent and I love the fact that they make their own crowns in their office. No going back 3 times for repairs. Highly recommend.

Using High-Tech Solutions Like Same-Day Crowns  Because We Value Your Time 

Our dentists can create and place a dental crown in a single visit using CEREC®, a computer-aided machine that can craft dental restorations right in our office.

Without CEREC, patients will have to wear a temporary crown for a few weeks while a lab manufactures the permanent crown. Bonner Family Dentistry makes the procedure easier for you. CEREC lets you skip the wait and helps you return to daily life as soon as possible.

The Procedure: What to Expect

Examining the Teeth

During your visit to our office in Dumas, TX, our dentists take X-rays of your mouth to identify any potential issues. In some cases, our dentists may need to perform a root canal treatment if your tooth is decayed or carries an increased risk of infection.

Preparing the Tooth

After any preliminary treatments, our dentists smooth and reshape the tooth to prepare it for the crown. We use local anesthesia to numb the area and offer oral conscious sedation or nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to help you feel comfortable.

Modeling the Crown

Next, our dentists survey the target tooth using a wand-like scanner. This scanner takes pictures of your mouth to create an accurate 3D model. This is known as a digital impression.

Creating the Crown

Our advanced CEREC system manufactures your crown in a matter of minutes based on the 3D model. Since we create our dental restorations in-office, our dentists can oversee the process and fine-tune your crown for the best fit.

Securing the Crown

For the final step, we make sure the crown fits snugly over your prepared tooth before cementing it in place. We will make any final adjustments to ensure the crown sits naturally in your mouth.
If CEREC isn't recommended for your unique case, a traditional crown can be crafted by a dental lab. We will provide a temporary crown to protect your prepped tooth until the permanent crown is ready. The turnaround time is typically a couple of weeks.

Recovery and Aftercare 

Numbness from the anesthesia will usually last a few hours after the dental procedure, and your tooth may feel sensitive to hot or cold temperatures. We recommend brushing with a toothpaste made for sensitive teeth until it fades.

The crown may feel different to your mouth for the first couple of days but should feel comfortable afterward. Long-term care for the crown is easy and only requires regular brushing and flossing.

What to Do If There Is an Issue

If the crown does not feel comfortable after a few days or becomes loose, contact our dental office in Dumas, TX. Dr. David or Dr. Reagan will readjust the crown until it meets your satisfaction.
