Dental Crowns

Tooth Crowns | Tooth Cap | Dental Cap

Most dentistry looks like dentistry. Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We replace existing crowns and with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth.

Tooth Restoration

Where damage to a person’s teeth is extreme, and apparently beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain “pasted on gold” crowns to make the smile appear “as new”. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe of dental problems, even permanently replacing missing teeth to offer a complete smile and a functional bite. We are renowned for the quality of our work and the fantastic changes we make for people using this technology. These treatments are used for a long-lasting correction of major dental problems. It is usual for these treatments to last for 20 to 30 years, which is as close to permanent as dental treatment can get.

How long does it take to fit a dental crown?

Fitting a crown requires at least two visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a temporary crown of either plastic or metal.

On the subsequent visit, we will remove the temporary crown and then fit and adjust the final crown. Finally, we will cement the crown into place and you have a new beautiful looking tooth.

What are the capabilities of crowns?

  • Replaces missing teeth
  • Offers support to misshapen teeth or badly broken teeth
  • Looks completely natural
  • Fixes “smile” and functional chewing problems

Crown and is a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases or wear and tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. Material used in these repairs is either high-grade porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold. A higher strength of the porcelain and gold materials is recommended to treat the most serious of dental problems. Where accidental damage has occurred, resulting in lost teeth, or where teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or as the result of old fillings breaking, crowns and/or can be used as a long-term solution.

Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth, which is usually due to hairline cracks in the chewing part of the tooth. Placing crowns on these teeth relieves the pain and allows a return of full dental function for these teeth. In front teeth, older can both weaken the teeth and cause “appearance” problems due to staining or chipping. Porcelain crowns and are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not. In teeth with root canal fillings, crowns can prevent breakage.

Our Latest Patient Testimonial

I grew up with stained teeth and I was always embarrased about my smile. Now I could not be more pleased. I did not know where to turn and heard about the office for The Dentists at Houston Westchase. I went in for a consult and learned both dentists, Dr Robbins and Dr. McRay had been practicing for several years. During the restorative process, I also discovered these dentists are part of a select few in Houston granted access to a dental lab that is one of the best for porcelain crowns and veneers. While Dr. Robbins did the restorative and aesthetics work, Dr. McRay was always calling to check on me also help answer any questions or concerns. Britney filed all my insurance claims and made that part easy as well. I hope my comments and review help others. Thank you Dr. Robbins and Dr. McRay for my new smile and self-esteem!

My experience with the Dentists of Houston Westchase was a pleasurable one. Many times that can't be said about a dentist office because the word "dentist" is usually associated with pain. The Dentists of Houston Westchase is the ONLY dental practice that I would associate with the word "painLESS" I called my experience "pleasurable" due to three factors: 1. VERY caring in the patient's level of comfort. 2. Precise control in the use of dental instruments. 3. You get to watch movies while they work! Movies are a nice to help keep your stress level down. Overall this is a great dental practice with very caring and very nice people. I will recommend them to everyone I know and to everyone I don't know!
