How Dental Crowns Can Save Your Smile
Dental crowns are tooth-colored jackets that go over existing teeth to the gumline. These sturdy restorations have many uses in general and in cosmetic dentistry.
A dental crown is often used following a root canal if the infection or decay was complex and the tooth is left vulnerable to breakage. With a crown, the weak tooth is useful again! Additionally, a dental crown may be used on a broken or weak tooth that has been subjected to trauma.
Dental crowns also hide tooth flaws, close small gaps between teeth, and give you a great smile!
This tooth-saving and smile-enhancing restoration is a patient favorite, and we think you’ll be happy, too.

Crowns and Bridges for a Seamless Smile
A dental bridge stands in for a missing tooth or teeth. The natural-looking tooth replacement is locked between two dental crowns. These dental crowns fit over the teeth on either side of the smile gap and lock your restoration in place.
No one will know you have a restoration because Dr. Mund uses quality materials and can color your bridge and crowns to match your smile.We think you’ll love our affordable crowns and bridges in Fort Worth, TX.
Caring for Your Crowns and Bridges
Dr. Mund wants you to get the most out of your crowns and bridges so he will provide any instructions you need. However, caring for crowns and bridges is easy and doesn’t require a lot of work. As a rule, treat your crowns and bridges as you would natural teeth.
Also, remember that crowns and bridges will not prevent gum disease or gum infections, which can cause restoration loss. The adjacent teeth that hold your bridge must remain strong to keep your bridge in place.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why does my child need silver crowns?
Dental crowns are used to cover teeth with large cavities that fillings can’t repair. Dental crowns act as a protective covering over the tooth, preventing chips, fractures, breakage, and future decay. If decay on a baby tooth is close enough to the nerve or the tooth is damaged enough that it could break, a stainless steel crown is the treatment of choice as it works best long term. Often, if a child has a large cavity on a baby tooth, the silver crown will be required to save the tooth. We don't want to extract teeth with cavities unless needed, and the crown saves the space for the permanent tooth to erupt!
