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. Carolyn Walker and Dr. Clarian Lannom, our skilled dentists, 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 dental 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 E4D technology, which uses 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 dental crowns with you, and we hope you will call Leon Springs Dental at 210-698-1010 today for more information. We look forward to restoring your smile!
