We offer the “crowning” touch when it comes to restoring damaged teeth.

We know just how upsetting it can be when you have to rush into our office for a cracked, broken, or severely decayed tooth. Our New Braunfels, TX, dentist Dr. Horacio Lucero sees these problems regularly. While you may feel upset and worried about this issue, the good news is that we know exactly what to do to correct and restore the tooth. In most cases, a dental crown is going to do the trick.

Here are the top three benefits of this tooth-shaped dental cap:

Protect Your Natural Teeth

One of the major responsibilities of a dental crown is to cover an existing tooth to prevent the weak or damaged tooth from incurring further damage. Whether you are dealing with a cavity or a broken tooth, these dental problems can significantly weaken a tooth. Once we remove decay and buff away the cracked or damaged part of the tooth, our New Braunfels, TX, family dentist will place a dental crown over the tooth to protect against additional damage.

Make Chewing easier

We all know how much a weak or damaged tooth can impact your ability to eat. Our jaws are incredibly powerful. In fact, the force of a human bite when chewing is usually around 70 pounds per square inch. You can imagine the amount of force that is placing on your damaged tooth. Luckily, by placing a dental crown immediately, we can strengthen and boost the tooth’s durability so that you can chew and eat without worrying.

Improve Your Appearance

Most people don’t think about the cosmetic benefits that are associated with getting a dental crown, but they are sometimes just as important, particularly if you’re dealing with an esthetically flawed tooth. If you have a tooth that is discolored, malformed, pitted, or misshapen due to injury, disease, or a genetic disorder, a crown can cover the existing tooth to improve its shape, size, or color.

Enjoy the royal treatment when it comes to getting a dental crown here in New Braunfels, TX. Our dentist Dr. Lucero offers safe, effective, and compassionate dental care to patients of all ages.
