About Dental Crowns
To heal and protect chipped teeth, discolored enamel, considerable decay, and different issues, dental crowns sit over the visible portion of the tooth. At Saddle Brook Dental Care in White Settlement, TX, crowns (also known as caps) are tough, lasting covers that fit closely on top of the the tooth above the gumline to cover where a dental cavity is too sizeable to be fixed with a regular filling or if a tooth is damaged and must have a shield. Crowns may also be helpful to conceal a different color tooth as well as adding stability to a bridge. Crowns by our dentists at Saddle Brook Dental Care may be ceramic, metal, or porcelain, according to the placement of the crown. The molar and premolar teeth typically are helped by the increased durability of metal, but the front teeth look more natural with ceramic or porcelain crowns that are dyed to be the same as the patient's natural teeth.
"Stellar customer service! Very straightforward and ever so helpful. I called this AM at 8 after finding them online. My brother needed immediate assistance because he was in throbbing pain and had to call into work over it. They gave us an appt 40 minutes from when I called. Was seen and the problems with my brothers teeth were explained in great detail with language he could understand. Laura was so helpful I wanted to hug her. She was able to arrange for my brother to be seen by another dentist nearby within the hour to have the extraction taken care of. She also did a fantastic job explaining the costs and what options were available to us due to our financial restraints. Laura saved the day for us! I truly appreciate everyone at Saddle Brook Dental for their assistance today.We will definitely be using them for all future dental work. And again, Laura was amazing!Thank you Laura and the team!

"I show up on time and get seen quickly. Staff is friendly and professional. Dr. PATEL is sweet & great at what she does. Today I saw Ortho Doctor Griffin I believe was his name and he was Amazing! I got my braces at 27 😁 Both Doctor's explained treatment options and their plans really well. They offer great financial help as well. I had to take my 5 year old son to all visits and they were very kind to him which was a huge plus ❤ I am definitely glad that I chose them as my Primary and for my Ortho even more.

What to Expect
To make a personalized crown, our dentists initially ready the tooth by filing off a slender layer of enamel, and then taking dental X-rays and molds of the tooth that will be taken to the nearest dental lab. A temporary cap may be used to cover the tooth while the customized crown is being crafted. As soon as the customized crown is returned to Saddle Brook Dental Care in White Settlement, TX, our dentists will expertly bond and fit the crown on top of the tooth. Our dentists will alter the cap for the best fit.
Some patients will feel brief tenderness or sensitivity to hot and cold, although the majority of patients will not feel any soreness after the cap is set. With ideal at-home care and routine dental examinations and cleanings, a dental cap will stay in place for anywhere from 10 - 40 years, based on the material and position of the cap. Some patients may have a cavity or bacterial infection will build below the crown, which will need a root canal treatment or a different procedure.
When the dental cap is regarded as necessary for the patient's health, dental insurance policies generally pay part of the bill, so our office staff at Saddle Brook Dental Care in White Settlement, TX will talk with the insurance to estimate their coverage and then the patient's portion of the expenses. Estimated billing, payment methods, and financing options are accepted at our office in White Settlement, TX and can be talked about at the patient's consultation with our dentists.
