Peter Thompson DDS

Dental Crowns

Dental CrownsIf you think that beautiful crowns are only for members of the royal family, think again! At your Portales dentist office of Dr. Peter Thompson DDS we can create beautiful, natural-looking, and durable dental crowns to repair teeth that have been damaged by trauma or decay.

Dental crowns are used as opposed to a filling when the decay or damage to a tooth is too extensive to be partially filled with a traditional filling and remain viable on its own.  Dental crowns cover the entire remaining tooth after damage and decay have been removed, to prevent further damage from occurring and to strengthen the tooth.

Dr. Thompson used a variety of materials when creating a custom dental crown for you, depending on your specific situation.  When possible, he will use porcelain or composite resins that will match your natural tooth’s coloring.  However, in certain situations it is necessary to use gold, or metal crowns.

Visit us in our Portales office today, and Dr. Thompson can address any concerns you have about potentially damaged teeth, and find out which type of crown may be best for you. If you have any questions about dental crowns, or would like to schedule an appointment with your Portales dentist, give us a call today at (575) 268-0007.
