If you are in need of a smile restoration, then you have come to the right place! Here at Chet B. Hawkins DDS Inc in Boerne, Texas, we offer dental crowns to protect a tooth and restore your smile when needed. That is why we are happy to talk to you about the basics of dental crowns, so you can understand why they can work for you.

Dental crowns are custom-made to cover a tooth to restore it to proper health and size. There are many reasons a crown might be needed to restore a tooth. Some reasons include cavities that become too large to fill, cracked or chipped teeth, a tooth that has become weak, and any other reason your dentist may need to place a crown over a tooth to protect it.

Dental crowns can be custom-made and blended to match your existing teeth, so only your dentist would know it was there. Your dental crown is not subject to tooth decay, however, your surrounding teeth are, so brushing and flossing are still needed to take proper care of your crown and oral health.

If you have questions or would like to know if a dental crown is a great option for you, please call us today at 830-443-4352 to set up an appointment with Dr. Chet B. Hawkins. Our friendly staff is happy to assist your smile in any way we can.
