Lexington Dental of Owasso Restores Smiles to Perfect Health
As part of our restorative dental treatment options, Dr. Cary offers porcelain dental crowns in Owasso, Oklahoma, to repair your smile if a traditional dental filling cannot fix your teeth. This treatment allows you to retain your natural tooth structure as much as possible while repairing dental decay. This easy restorative treatment can be completed in one or two appointments, depending on the extent of the repair needed.
Dental Crowns vs. Fillings
As one of the more common dental restorations offered, we use dental crowns when cavities caused by dental decay are too severe to be repaired by traditional dental fillings. Often known as a dental “cap,” a dental crown is used to cover healthy parts of the tooth to retain as much of the natural tooth as possible while restoring the damaged tooth’s functionality. The dental crown is custom-made and shaped to fit the tooth and comfortably match your bite. Crowns are typically made from gold, metal, or porcelain, though most patients prefer porcelain crowns because they look like regular teeth.
