Dental Crowns & Bridges

Read Transcript

If you’ve got a damaged tooth, we can save it with a dental crown! Dental Crowns are an appropriate restoration for broken teeth, badly cracked teeth, or even teeth with decay too extensive to be repaired with a tooth filling. They can also be used to cover misshapen or discolored teeth.

Award-winning League City, TX dentist Dr. J. Derek Tieken and our capable dental team can determine if a dental crown is right for you. Call Tieken Smiles Dentistry at 281-942-6615 for a free consultation in our League City, TX dentist office.

Getting a Dental Crown

Dr. Tieken has expertise with multiple dental restorations. So the first step is determining whether a dental crowns is the best fit for your situation. He’ll assess you using the latest dental technology, including digital X-rays. Then:

  • He’ll take impressions of your teeth using an intraoral scanner. No more messy goop in your mouth!
  • He sends the digital impressions to a high-quality off-site lab, which produces your dental crown.
  • He places a temporary crown on your tooth to wear until you receive your new crown.
  • When your new crown arrives, he makes sure the fit and appearance are right before securely attaching it to your tooth.

A dental crowns can also replace a single missing tooth if it is attached to a dental implant.

We use metal-free dental crowns for a natural look.

Dental Bridges to Replace Missing Teeth

Dental bridges work in conjunction with dental crowns to replace a missing tooth or teeth. Here’s how it works:

  • We attach dental crowns to either natural teeth or dental implants.
  • We use them as an anchor to support a dental bridge that contains natural-looking replacement teeth.
  • The bridge fills the gap left by your missing tooth or teeth. It’s likely no one will even notice!
