Don W. Heyen and our Heyen DDS Family & Cosmetic Dentistry team are happy to restore your smile after a root canal procedure with a dental crown. We are also pleased to offer dental crowns for our patients in Wichita Falls, Texas and the surrounding areas who may be experiencing the following dental conditions:

Cracked Tooth Syndrome: Does your tooth hurt whenever you bite down on something? If you have pain when you chew, it may be because of a fractured tooth. Chewing can exert pressure on the fracture lines, creating pain. When a dental crown is placed on the tooth, the stress on the fractures is distributed evenly, which relieves tooth pain.

Large Dental Filling: When you have a tooth that is filled with decay that spans over half the width of the tooth, a dental crown can restore the tooth’s function and appearance while avoiding further damage to the tooth. A dental crown reinforces and strengthens a tooth because of the way it encases it.

Root Canal Procedure: As we mentioned already, a dental crown is the perfect solution following a root canal procedure. Placing a crown after decay is hollowed out of a tooth will effectively prevent the tooth from cracking.

Worn Down Tooth: If you are constantly clenching your teeth, you may be experiencing bruxism. This condition can wear down a tooth or teeth over time. Another factor in wearing down a tooth is acid erosion, which essentially weakens tooth enamel. A dental crown can restore a tooth damaged by either bruxism or erosion.

Don’t let a flawed tooth cause you to lose confidence in your smile. A dental crown restoration may well be the perfect solution for you. Whether you need to restore a tooth, anchor and attach a dental bridge, or complete a dental implant, dental crowns are an excellent option for the job.
