Dental Crowns & Bridges - Argyle, TX

A Cost-Effective Option
to Restore At-Risk Teeth


Preserve Your Natural Smile with Crowns and Bridges

The structure and strength of your teeth can change due to decay, trauma, wear and tear or extensive fillings that replace most of the tooth crown. In some cases, a tooth can’t be saved due to advanced gum disease that caused irreversible destruction of the underlying bone, severe decay, fractures or injury. Dental crowns or tooth caps in Argyle, TX are a cost-effective choice for restoring function to damaged teeth, while dental bridges are ideal for replacing one or two missing teeth. At Argyle Advanced Dental Care, our dentist Dr. Hao Chi Hua is skilled in delivering restorative treatments to preserve an existing tooth or replace a missing one. Dental crowns and bridges are fabricated in porcelain or zirconia to blend seamlessly with your existing teeth. Both options will enable you to resume eating foods comfortably without worrying about a compromised bite and/or missing smile.

Dental Crowns Repair Damaged Teeth

Crowns are tooth caps placed on the top of a tooth that has been modified. They restore tooth function and appearance when tooth decay is so advanced that large portions of the tooth must be removed or when an existing large filling can’t be repaired. Crowns also restore the structure and function of a weakened tooth after a root canal. In addition, if veneers aren’t viable for covering stained or discolored teeth, we may suggest crowns at Argyle Advanced Dental Care. The tooth receiving the crown is filed across the top and sides to make space for the crown to fit snugly. Then, Dr. Hao Chi Hua takes the tooth’s impressions and sends them to a dental lab to handcraft the crown. You’ll wear a functional temporary crown made of resin until you return to Argyle Advanced Dental Care to be fitted for your final crown.

Dental Bridges Replace a Missing Tooth

When you lose a tooth, adjacent teeth may shift and cause misalignment or malocclusion (bad bite). A missing tooth in your lower jaw can cause a tooth in the upper jaw to shift down into that space, placing undue stress on your teeth and jaw joints, as well as pain and potential damage. Missing teeth can also cause decay in adjacent teeth, leading to bone loss and eventual facial changes as the jawbone collapses. A dental bridge is a natural-looking alternative to dental implants to replace one or two missing teeth.

Most bridges are made of a false tooth in the center, cemented to crowned surrounding teeth on each side of the gap. Dr. Hao Chi Hua prepares the abutment teeth like a single crowned tooth and sends the impressions to the dental lab to create the bridge. In addition to restoring oral function after tooth loss, a dental bridge at Argyle Advanced Dental Care eliminates unsightly gaps in your smile and prevents remaining teeth from shifting.
