Dental Crowns & Bridges in Katy, TX

If your teeth have become damaged or broken, dental crowns and dental bridges are two different possible ways to restore your smile at our Katy, TX office.

Dental Crowns

Crowns are a sturdy cap that is placed over a damaged tooth to restore its full function. We offer both porcelain crowns bonded to a metal base and full porcelain Procera crowns, which look a bit more natural. To be fitted with a crown, your Katy dentist will take an impression of your mouth so that the piece can be custom-made. You will then need to return for a second appointment to have it fixed to your tooth.

Some of the benefits of dental crowns are:

  • Porcelain crowns look and feel like your natural tooth, even down to the color.
  • Dental crowns are incredibly durable and can last for over a decade with proper care.
  • Dental crowns can help protect a tooth that has been damaged either by wear or decay.

Dental Bridges

When a damaged tooth has to be removed, dental bridges offer you a way to preserve your smile and prevent the surrounding teeth from moving. Dental, or tooth, bridges are either made of porcelain or porcelain fixed to metal and consist of an artificial tooth implant that is attached to the surrounding teeth. Dental bridges require at least two dentist appointments, as your Katy dentist will first need to take an impression of the area so that the bridges and artificial teeth can be created. On your next appointment, the pieces will be secured in place for a durable, natural fit.

Some of the benefits of dental bridges are:

  • They fill the gap left by tooth removal.
  • Dental bridges prevent your teeth from shifting over time.
  • They properly distribute the pressure when you bite down, which keeps teeth from wearing unevenly.
  • Dental bridges restore your smile and face shape.
