What are dental crowns?

If you have experienced moderate to severe dental decay or trauma, then we may suggest a dental crown. Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that cover teeth in order to restore their health and vitality. Dr. Walker, our skilled dentist, may suggest a dental crown to hold a broken tooth together, to prevent a tooth from falling apart, to anchor a dental bridge, or to support a large filling or root canal treatment. In the past, it required multiple appointments, messy impressions, and lots of fitting to complete a dental crown. Today, we are proud to offer same-day dental crowns in San Antonio, Texas.

What are same-day crowns?

Same-day crowns are dental crowns that can be designed, created, and placed in just one visit to our dental office. We are able to do this with a specialized machine that takes a block of porcelain, perfectly matched to your smile, and forms your crown based on our exact measurements and specifications. After preparing your tooth through a gentle reshaping process, we will permanently cement the crown in place. We are excited to share the many benefits of same-day crowns with you and hope you will call us at Leon Springs Dental Center today for more information. We look forward to restoring your smile!
