Dental Crowns in Hurst,TX
If a cavity is not treated early, it can grow so large and destroy so much of a tooth that there is not enough tooth left to support a white filling.
A dental crown covers the remaining tooth to prevent further damage.
Dr. Lin might also recommend a dental crown if a tooth:
- needs nerve treatment (pulpotomy),
- is not formed properly and is already breaking down even without cavities, or
- is cracked or fractured as a result of trauma or grinding.
For front teeth where appearance is important, we offer a variety of tooth-colored crowns, including white-filing crowns and porcelain crowns. Dr. Lin will evaluate which type of restorations or crowns are best suited for your child’s needs.
