Dental Crowns

A broken, damaged, or decayed tooth can be unsightly and painful, and can also lead to more serious oral health conditions. 

Dr. Max Teja can alleviate uncomfortable side effects and restore the health and appearance of your teeth with dental crowns

If you suspect you have a dental problem, do not delay treatment...

A Crown Can Save Your Tooth

If you allow infection and decay to go untreated, you risk needing extractions. However, a dental crown can not only repair damage already done to a tooth, but protect it against future infection, as well. The sooner you seek professional help, the better chance you have of saving your natural tooth and preventing even more serious oral health complications.

Same-Day Crowns  with CEREC® Technology

Thanks to the CEREC system, our San Angelo patients can now treat a dental problem and receive a permanent crown in the very same appointment. CEREC is a computer-assisted design and production tool that increases the speed and precision of crafting dental restorations.

With this technology, we take digital scans of your teeth, design your crown, and send it to our in-house milling machine for instant production. This streamlined process allows you to avoid temporary crowns and multiple appointments, completing treatment before you walk out the door.

Commitment To Modern Methods

While Dr. Teja has been in practice for decades, our services are anything but outdated. In fact, CEREC is just one example of how we stay up-to-date with the latest techniques and technology in restorative dentistry. We strive to blend the best tried and true methods, with the cutting-edge to give our patients the highest quality, convenient treatments. 

Treatment Timeline

Take a closer look at how simple treatment is at San Angelo Smiles...

Diagnose Problem

Dr. Teja will first examine your teeth and determine if the condition requires a dental crown. We will always attempt to use the most conservative methods of dentistry and save your natural tooth if possible. 

Treat Tooth

Next, we eliminate any decay and infection compromising your oral health and clean your teeth. A small layer of surface enamel is removed from the affected tooth to make room for the dental crown.

Take Impressions

Using our high-tech intraoral camera, we take digital scans of your smile and design the custom dimensions of your crown. Instead of placing a temporary crown and sending production off to an outside lab, we upload the designs to our CEREC milling device for instant manufacturing.

Fabricate Crown

We carefully select the color of porcelain for your crown by shade matching the enamel of your adjacent teeth. The CEREC machine will then carve the crown from a solid block of color-matched porcelain ceramic, which typically takes less than an hour. 

Place Restoration

Finally, when your permanent crown is ready, we examine the look and fit against your teeth. Once you and Dr. Teja are satisfied, it is bonded in place with special dental cement that is cured under a light until hard. 

What happens if I need a dental implant-supported crown?

Repair Your Smile with Maximum Stability

Dental implant

If you are considering restoring a missing tooth with a dental implant-supported crown, your treatment timeline will look much different. Dental implants involve a surgical procedure to place the post within the jawbone.

Don't worry, it's not as scary as it sounds. In fact, dental implants are widely considered the best way to correct tooth loss, providing a wealth of oral health benefits. By replacing the underlying tooth roots, implants stimulate your jaw tissues and prevent bone loss and gum recession. Furthermore, your implant-supported dental crown is self-supported so you will not need to alter the adjacent teeth like you would with a bridge. You can schedule an appointment at San Angelo Smiles to find out if treatment is right for you.

Actually still at office with my spouse and felt compelled to leave a review. So far the experience has been excellent. The staff and doctor have been extremely caring. They have everything you need to help you feel calm and a procedure only they offer to help in healing. I will leave a follow up review when everything is done.
