Natural Looking Dental Crowns in Arlington TX

WHAT IS A DENTAL CROWN?

dental crown and tooth crown with a dentist near Mansfield TX and Grand PrairieA dental crown is simply a replica of your natural tooth crown—the visible portion of your tooth above the gum line. A tooth crown is employed when a natural tooth crown is damaged, cracked or in a situation in which it cannot be repaired through restorative dentistry procedures. Though the concept of crowns for teeth is simple, the work involved in producing a beautiful and natural-looking porcelain crown is not easy. Cosmetic dentist, Dr. Stephen Ratcliff only uses the finest materials and artisanship in a tooth crown.

  • The next step is called “prepping” your tooth. This involves shaping your natural tooth in order to most effectively receive, support and hold your new dental crown.
  • When the new tooth crown is complete we then attach it to the natural tooth which was prepped to receive it.
  • After the new crowns for teeth are in place, we do touch-ups to make sure it functions and interacts well with your other teeth as well as your overall bite.
