Crowns are similar to a cap that is placed over a tooth, and are used to save and restore a damaged tooth. Crowns look natural and allow patients to use their tooth again. The color of a crown can also be matched to your natural teeth, and crowns help to make damaged teeth strong again.

When Would a Crown be Necessary?

  • To repair a cracked or damaged tooth
  • After root canal treatment1
  • To help restore a misshapen or stained tooth
  • To repair an existing crown that does not fit properly

Crowns can last anywhere between 5 to 15 years depending on wear and tear. Over time if the crown faces a higher level of wear and tear, this can lead to the need for crown replacement. If you use good oral hygiene and you are careful with your crown they can last up to 25-30 years.

Tips To Help Your Crown Last Longer

  • Avoid biting down on hard objects or foods to prevent wear and tear of the crown.
  • Attend regular cleanings in our office so we can ensure all looks good and your crown remains healthy.
  • Avoid grinding or clenching your teeth. If you suffer from bruxism we may recommend a mouth guard.
  • Make sure you are brushing and flossing daily, and you pay attention to the crown area while brushing.

If you experience any pain in or around your crown, or notice any cracks or chips please contact our office immediately. We will get you in to be seen as soon as possible.

If you are looking for that perfect smile and want a permanent solution to broken, missing, or cracked teeth, then dental implants may be the perfect choice. Dental implants are built to last, and give patients a permanent solution that restores your smile. Implants can help build confidence, and if taken care of can last upwards of 25 years.


At West Houston, our passion is creating beautiful smiles. Our doctors have years of experience in implant dentistry, and love to help patients achieve the smile of their dreams. During our detailed implant process, our doctor will complete an evaluation of your teeth and mouth and create a customized treatment plan. We work directly with the patient to choose a treatment that best fits your needs. Our staff is available every step of the way to answer questions and support our patients through the implant process.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

Dental implants provide long lasting results, and allow patients to speak and eat normally like they would with natural teeth. Implants are comfortable and are attached to the tooth’s roots, providing a strong base for the crowns that are attached to the implant. Dental implants have a success rate of 95%, and can be life changing. Implants are just as strong as our natural teeth, and in most cases can withstand more pressure. Bone grafting can be done if the patient requires additional support in the jaw area prior to your implant procedure.

 

Caring for dental implants is similar to caring for your natural teeth. Patients should continue to practice good oral hygiene habits at home with brushing and flossing to keep your dental implants looking and feeling great. At West Houston your oral health is our priority, and patients should never live with a smile they are embarrassed of. Let our team help you take control of your oral health, and get you started towards a new smile!
