Dental Crowns in Temple

If you're self-conscious about cracked, broken, decayed, or worn teeth our team of dental professionals can bring back your healthy, natural-looking smile with dental crowns. A crown can return structure, strength, and function to a tooth with extensive decay or damage. Designed to fit snugly and function as a healthy tooth, a crown will protect your tooth from further damage and preserve the jaw's correct natural alignment.

We use precious metal, porcelain fused to metal or all-ceramic crowns. To maintain a fully white smile, we recommend all-ceramic crowns. Our precise color-matching system allows us to find the right shade of porcelain to blend with your natural tooth color. All-ceramic crowns are also extremely durable and long lasting, and these benefits make them popular with dentists as well as patients.

If desired, many times we can design, fit, and place your crowns in just a single visit with our CEREC machine. Once a crown is placed, you can care for it as you do your natural teeth. Conscientious brushing twice a day and daily flossing will protect the base of your crown from bacterial growth. Be sure to see us at least two times each year for professional cleanings and a preventive exam, too.

Do you want to have a tooth restored with a crown? Call today to reserve your consultation with Dr. Fossum or Dr.Elmore. We give Temple and surrounding areas customized care for fantastic smiles.
