Protect Your Damaged Teeth

Learn more about our custom dental crown treatments

If your teeth are damaged or decayed, you might need something stronger than a filling to fix the problem. A crown is a custom cap designed to cover your ailing tooth so it can heal properly. Dr. Lannie Devin, might recommend a crown for the following reasons:

  • To protect a tooth after a root canal
  • To strengthen a cracked or weakened tooth
  • To enhance your smile during a cosmetic procedure
  • To improve the functionality of a misshapen tooth

If you're an Idalou or Lubbock, TX resident and want to learn more about your dental crown treatment options, contact Idalou General Dentistry today.

What is a crown made of?

If Dr. Devin recommends a crown, it’ll be made from one of the following three materials:

  1. Porcelain
  2. Gold
  3. Porcelain fused to metal

The material used for your custom crown depends on the purpose of the procedure. Your dentist will discuss your options with you. We’ll make sure to use the best technique to improve your smile.
