With their natural sheen and strength, porcelain crowns give patients the ability to restore a tooth’s natural function and appearance.

In the past, dentistry had to use metal for crowns. This was the only option for protecting a severely decayed or damaged tooth. The metal tooth was ugly in appearance. However,  with better technology porcelain crowns have become the cosmetic choice when replacing missing teeth.

What Is a Dental Crown?

Dental crowns (some times called “caps”) are custom made to fit over severely decayed or damaged teeth. This gives teeth strength and protects them from further decay and reducing sensitivity. Crowns improve the appearance of the tooth while strengthening a compromised tooth.

Patients in Pasadena and Deer Park Texas are excited with the natural, custom computer made crowns. Dr. Nugent utilizes the CEREC system and is able to fabricate your crown in one visit. fit offered by tailor-made porcelain crowns.
