Dental Crowns Overview
When teeth are worn down or damaged due to tooth decay, it may be necessary to find a solution beyond a simple filling. At Made Ya Smile in Cypress, TX, we offer dental crowns to restore the function and aesthetic appeal of your smile. Also called caps, crowns are a common procedure that protects your teeth with full coverage from the gumline up. Crowns can also be used to protect a tooth after root canal therapy. No matter the reason, our experienced practitioners use dental crowns to meet your restorative and cosmetic needs with high-quality materials such as high noble metal, porcelain-to-metal, and aesthetic Empress® all-ceramic materials. If you have a worn-down or damaged tooth, contact Made Ya Smile to schedule a consultation from one of our skilled dentists.

"From the time I entered to the time I departed, I experienced excellent service. Ms. Bernie was the first receptionist that I encountered she was very warm and friendly and she answered all my questions. Then I met the dental assistant Nena, also warm and friendly . She walked me through each process very carefully and put me at ease. Nena then introduce me to Ms. Bee, the Hygienist who again very warm and friendly. Ms. Bee walked me through her process carefully, again putting me at ease. Dr. Dan also very nice, gave me more details about what was needed and why. Dr. Dan, Ms. Bee and Nena was very gentle with needle. That speaks volumes coming from someone like me who up until now had a phobia about the Denver for many years. Alex was the last receptionist I met who was also very warm and friendly. No one was pushy about having anything done that may have been unnecessary. I love this place. They did "Make me smile". My new dental office, the Cypress location."- L.D. / Google / Feb 19, 2020

Best Candidates for Mouth Guards
Dental crowns are customized to blend in with the rest of your smile and meet your oral health goals. Made Ya Smile uses crowns to treat many types of dental issues, such as teeth with fillings that don't function properly. They are also useful in restoring teeth that are broken, cracked, or moderately worn down or decayed. Other candidates for crowns are patients who have misshapen, abnormally small, or discolored teeth. Our practitioners may also use crowns for those who have been given root canal treatment since these teeth are at greater risk for breaking.
Made Ya Smile works with different materials to meet your needs, goals, and budget. For instance, the empress all-ceramic crowns are used in the smile zone as an aesthetic option, offering the appearance of natural teeth. Porcelain-fused-to-metal is used for back teeth, and all-metal crowns are excellent for areas in the back of the mouth, especially when the patient frequently grinds their teeth. At our Cypress, TX clinic, our staff has 30 years of experience treating patients, finding the right materials that meet your needs, and matching crowns to the size, shape, and color of your natural smile.
What To Expect with Dental Crowns
The team at Made Ya Smile focuses on giving every patient a comfortable experience with exceptional results. At the beginning of your procedure, we will either numb the area or offer you options for sedation. Then we will use state-of-the-art dental tools to remove the damaged or decayed parts of the tooth and add a special buildup material to strengthen it. Our practitioners will take an impression to get a custom crown created. In the meantime, we will place a temporary crown over your tooth to maintain the appearance and function of your smile. At your next appointment in our Cypress, TX clinic, we will place the permanent crown and ensure a comfortable fit and bite.
Dental Crowns Recovery
After your crown has been placed by our practitioners, we advise you to avoid eating until the numb feeling in your mouth has gone away to avoid damage to your soft tissue. Our staff will then review any aftercare instructions for taking care of your dental crowns. You may experience common symptoms such as light inflammation or discomfort near the area after your visit, which can be alleviated with simple over-the-counter medication. Issues such as loose or dislodged crowns should be reported to our office in Cypress, TX right away. Please do not try to fix or cement the dental crown by yourself, which could result in significant damage. At Made Ya Smile, we will monitor your condition through future appointments such as your annual exam or bi-annual cleanings.
Dental Crowns Insurance Coverage
Made Ya Smile gladly accepts most PPO dental plans at our office in Cypress, TX, and will file claims on your behalf. Fortunately, most dental insurers will offer partial coverage for dental crowns. Before we begin your procedure, we will call your provider to understand your plan's benefits and out-of-pocket costs. Our staff also accepts many convenient payment options to make sure you receive the high-quality dental care you need.
