Dental Crowns in San Marcos
What happens when a tooth becomes cracked, broken, decayed, or worn down? It needs restorative help with a crown. At San Marcos Gentle Dental, Dr. Donnelly uses custom-made porcelain crowns to help patients return structure and functionality to a compromised tooth.
Every porcelain crown from our office is designed to fit perfectly over a prepared tooth, providing you with results that feel good and look good. When you smile, you don’t want others to see a difference between your natural teeth and your crown. And with a porcelain crown from our San Marcos team, you won’t have to worry about that. Your crown will complement your appearance so that you can smile with confidence.
Here’s what you can expect from a crown procedure. First, Dr. Donnelly will closely examine the tooth that needs to be restored. Then, your crown will be designed and the tooth will be prepared. When your finished crown is ready, it will be permanently fixed in place, giving you back the functionality your smile had lost.
But besides improving functionality and appearance, a crown will also help preserve your smile’s alignment. If your damaged tooth isn’t repaired, it could be lost. When one or more teeth are missing, it’s possible for surrounding teeth to move out of alignment as a result. This can make you more susceptible to gum disease, TMJ issues, and even the loss of other teeth in the coming years.
