Dental crowns are custom-crafted dental restorations that can address teeth affected by decay, damage, wear, and other concerns. Crowns also may be needed when fillings are not sufficient enough to improve the structure of a tooth that has been riddled with decay. Also called "caps," dental crowns are full-coverage restorations that are placed over a tooth that has been damaged or replace a tooth that has been extracted. Made Ya Smile is pleased to offer patients customized crowns to meet a variety of restorative needs. Our dental laboratory uses high-quality, medical-grade materials to create these dental caps, including porcelain, ceramic, and more. If you have a damaged tooth that you think could be repaired or replaced with a durable dental crown, contact our Pearland, TX office and learn about your endless options for dental restoration.

Best Candidates for Dental Crowns
Custom-made to blend in seamlessly with your smile, dental crowns are a single-tooth restoration. You may be a candidate for a dental crown if you have a tooth with large fillings that are no longer functioning properly, cracked or broken teeth, or if you have received a root canal. Our team will place crowns over teeth that have received root canal therapy to prevent that tooth from crumbling entirely due to structural issues. To determine if a dental crown is right for you, we will perform a thorough evaluation of your teeth, gums, and jaw. One of our skilled dentists will work with you to ensure that your treatment meets your needs, goals, and budget. Our team has many years of experience in the field of dentistry, so we will be able to help you decide whether a ceramic, porcelain, or porcelain-fused-to-metal crown is ideal for your situation.
What To Expect
Made Ya Smile in Pearland, TX strives to provide the most comfortable and effective care for our patients of all ages. To ensure that your comfort needs are met during your treatment, we will numb the area receiving the crown and possibly sedation. Using medical-grade instruments, we will remove any decay or damaged enamel from the tooth and apply a composite resin if necessary. Once your tooth is cleared of debris, rinsed, and dried, we will make an impression to be sent to our dental lab. We will place a temporary restoration over your tooth in the meantime. When your crown arrives at our office, we will call you in for a fitting to ensure that the wear is comfortable and made to fit correctly.
After your dental crown is placed, you should not eat until the numb feeling has left your mouth completely to avoid accidentally damaging your tongue or the soft tissues of your mouth by biting. A member of our team will go over detailed aftercare instructions with you so you can properly care for your restoration as well as your oral health. Following the placement of your permanent crown, you may notice some inflammation around the gums or discomfort around the treated area, but this should go away with time. Any discomfort can be helped with over-the-counter pain medicine. If you experience any issues with your crown, please contact our Pearland, TX office straight away. If your crown becomes loose, dislodged, or feels uncomfortable, you will need to contact us about the situation promptly. You should continue to attend your twice-yearly appointments at Made Ya Smile so we can continually monitor your oral progress.
Some of the costs of your dental crown may be covered by your insurance. In order to determine your benefits, a member of our team will contact our provider and learn about your coverage. If you have any questions about the insurances or payments we accept, don't hesitate to contact our Pearland, TX office. We'll be more than happy to provide you with any information you need. We can also tell you more about our own in-house medical financing program.
Dental crowns are a common dental restoration that can be used to address a range of concerns, including cracked, broken, or damaged teeth. Using high-quality materials, our laboratory will create your custom crown to suit your smile and improve your oral health.
