A dental crown restores a tooth’s shape, size and strength. A crown refers to a single tooth and a bridge refers to multiple teeth. A bridge or a crown fully encases the visible portion of your tooth or teeth. Once it is bonded, only a dental professional can remove it.
With proper care a crown can last 5-15 years. Crowns and bridges require one office visit, but extensive needs can call for additional visits to complete the procedure. Same-day CEREC services are available at our Forney and Heartland locations.

What is a dental crown?
A dental crown is really just a cap that goes on the top of tooth. Crowns and bridges are installed to strengthen the tooth or teeth. They can mimic the appearance of your teeth, making them unnoticeable.
