Major cavities and fractures cause pain when you bite and chew. Fillings, inlays, or onlays are not always enough to fix damaged teeth.
Dental crowns will cap, protect, and strengthen seriously damaged teeth. They may be the right dental restoration for you.
Find out how Drs. Steven and Tonya Fuqua, serving Keller, Colleyville, and Southlake, TX, can save your smile with a crown...
A Trusted Treatment Option
Thanks to our state-of-the-art on-site dental lab, our team can ensure you reap the greatest rewards from this effective procedure. A custom dental crown:
Restores the Ability to Bite and Chew
Fractured teeth and severe cavities can make eating some foods difficult. By capping a damaged tooth with a crown, you should be able to eat your favorite foods and enjoy meals just like you used to.
Prevents Further Tooth Damage
Chips, cracks, and decay weaken a tooth's structure. Without treatment, root canal infections and further damage are possible. Getting dental caps can prevent these and other oral health problems.
Avoids the Need for Tooth Extraction
Given the dangers of structurally weakened teeth, extraction may be needed to prevent further wellness issues. Dental crowns help patients keep their natural teeth, which is better for their health.
Improves the Look of Your Smile
If a damaged front tooth needs capping, we can use a porcelain crown. This tooth-colored cap is carefully matched with the rest of your teeth. That means seamless, aesthetically pleasing results.
How Is a Dental Crown Placed?
Experience a Beautiful & Healthy Smile
Don't let tooth decay or fractures keep you from enjoying life. These problems shouldn't keep you from smiling around the people you love either. Your smile can be restored and all it takes is a trip to the dentist.
Drs. Steven and Tonya Fuqua have 25 years of experience in dentistry, are committed to ongoing education in the field, and can craft a durable, natural-looking dental crown that lasts for years. We even have an on-site lab to ensure the most lifelike, durable results.

Why Dental Crowns Are Essential for Treating Decay, Fractures, and More
Advanced Restorative Care
Dental crowns are very versatile. We can use them to treat a serious tooth fracture or address severe decay on multiple teeth. Dentists use metal and porcelain crowns for all sorts of issues. Crowns are a reliable restorative treatment, putting an emphasis on the immediate needs of a patient as well as long-term results.
Root Canal Therapy
If you do need to undergo endodontic care, crowns will prove essential for finishing the job. During root canal therapy, a porcelain or metal dental crown will be used to cap the treated tooth. This will allow patients to bite and chew again. The crown also protects the tooth from future structural problems down the road.
Dental Implant Restoration
When a patient is missing just one tooth, a crown can be used to cap a dental implant for individual tooth replacement. Dental implants are artificial roots that are surgically anchored into the jawbone, preventing bone loss and gum recession. Porcelain crowns mean the treatment will not only be healthier than a traditional bridge but also look flawless.
Porcelain and Metal Crowns Which Kind Should I Get?
Tooth-Colored Porcelain Crowns
A crown crafted from porcelain is designed to blend in imperceptibly with your surrounding teeth. This has numerous cosmetic benefits. Thanks to modern materials and techniques, a ceramic crown appears totally natural. It is common for these kinds of crowns to be used for the front teeth given how prominent they are in your smile. What they might lack in sheer durability, they more than make up for in looks.
Metal Dental Crowns
Metal and porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns are stronger than their porcelain counterparts. This is why they tend to be used as a dental restoration for the molars and premolars. Discomfort while chewing will no longer be an issue, even with your favorite tough and crunchy foods. While metal crowns may not be as aesthetically appealing as porcelain ones, their durability is a much more important consideration.
