Here at My Dentist in Plano, crowns, bridges help to restore natural form and function in our patients' mouths in that we can replace teeth before they completely crack, break, and become unsalvageable. We can use what's left of the tooth to grab onto it, wrap that tooth up, and cover it and protect it with a hard tooth-like material called a crown. That's a beneficial procedure in that it will help to hold space. It will keep your teeth from shifting sideways and keep your teeth from shifting down to where your bite, for years and years and years, will stay level and won't allow your teeth, your bite – or your occlusion – to collapse. A collapsing dentition or a collapsing bite can cause jaw problems, bite problems, and result in bad TMJ pain, myofacial pain, and subsequent headaches. One of the most important things that we can stress is to replace these decayed, broken, or missing teeth with prosthetic teeth, from crowns and bridges, to help restore your dentition and keep your dentition as natural as possible.
- Mend a broken or cracked tooth.
- Repair a severely decayed tooth.
- Seal a tooth following a root canal procedure.
- Cover a badly stained or misshapen tooth.
- Replace a missing tooth when attached to a dental implant or used as part of a dental bridge.

Enjoy Incredible Convenience With a Same-Day Crown
We’ve invested in sophisticated CAD/CAM technology so you can get a quality dental crown in a single visit to our office. Dr. Dickson uses 3-D software to design your crown, then manufactures it using our in-office milling machine. You can relax in one of our massage chairs and watch TV or listen to music while you wait. He’ll ensure the fit is perfect. If it’s not, he can easily and quickly make any needed changes.
Compare that to the usual process where the manufacture of a crown is outsourced to an outside dental lab. You’ll wait at least several days for your restoration while wearing a temporary crown. If there are problems with fit, it will require back-and-forth communication with the lab to resolve the problem.
With or Without Implants, a Bridge Replaces Missing Teeth
You can replace a single missing tooth with a dental crown attached to a dental implant. To replace several teeth in a row, we can attach a bridge to implants. If you’d prefer not to get implants, we can attach a fixed bridge to two dental crowns bonded to your teeth on either side of the gap. Unlike dentures, you don’t have to remove a bridge for cleaning.
To see what our Plano, TX dental crowns and bridges can do for your smile, call 972-737-7039. You’ll find our office on Preston Road, near the Legacy Shops.
