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

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
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.
