When a tooth is badly damaged or diseased and does not respond to other treatment options, dental extraction may be required. This involves surgically removing the tooth, but thanks to the modern techniques and equipment we use at Lake Austin Family Dental, it is a virtually painless process.
A dental crown is used to restore the appearance and functionality of a tooth. It is crafted from porcelain and looks like a natural tooth. Dr. Harris will first remove decayed material from the affected tooth in order to provide space for the crown and to ensure strength of the remaining tooth structure. The crown can be placed over the tooth once the tooth has been prepared. The crown is bonded on and can be used in any way a natural tooth would function.
