Even a single chipped, cracked, or broken tooth can spoil your smile or lead to biting and speaking problems. Our certified dentist, Dr. Priyanka Agrawal, offers several customized restorations like fillings, inlays, onlays, crowns, bridges, and implants to complete your smile.
Crowns are preferred restorations used to correct several dental problems. Our highly trained dentist near you may use a crown to restore a cracked, discolored, chipped, or broken tooth. Dental crowns fit like a cover over the stub of the tooth and protect it from further damage.
Our experienced dentist in Liberty Hill, TX provides metal, ceramic, and porcelain crowns, depending on the location and function of the affected tooth. Porcelain or porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns may be the best choice if the tooth is located in a visible part of your oral cavity.
These crowns add to the aesthetic value but are less robust compared to metal crowns. Metal dental crowns are ideal for restoring rear teeth as they are stronger and can withstand higher chewing forces.
Please contact Prime Dental of Liberty Hill to learn more about the right dental crown for your needs.
Once you come in for your consultation with Dr. Priyanka Agrawal, we will first assess the tooth using advanced imaging technology.
Dental crowns do not hurt. Our skilled dentist will first administer local anesthesia or numbing gel before grinding down tooth enamel. We do this to help the affected tooth support the crown. We will take precise impressions of your tooth, which the lab will use to fabricate permanent crowns near you.
Placing a Temporary Crown
Our dentist will place temporary crowns in Liberty Hill, TX using milder adhesive to protect the tooth from injury and sensitivity. The dental lab may take a couple of weeks to fabricate the permanent dental crown.
Cementing the Permanent Crown
During the second appointment at Prime Dental of Liberty Hill, we will remove the temporary crown and cement the permanent crown using stronger dental adhesive.
After fastening the crown, Dr. Priyanka Agrawal will check it for fit and comfort during regular dental exams and make adjustments if necessary.
