Dental crowns offer a natural-looking solution for teeth that are damaged or aesthetically challenged.
38th Street Dental in Austin, TX, uses premium dental materials and the latest technology to design crowns that look good and stay strong.
With advanced training in cosmetic and restorative dentistry, our dentists' custom crowns look natural and feel comfortable in your mouth.
Crowns Offer a Natural-Looking Solution for Many Dental Issues
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that completely encase a tooth. They can protect and strengthen a tooth weakened by trauma or decay, camouflage a misshapen tooth, or even act as a stand-in for a missing tooth when paired with dental implants.
A dental crown solves many of the problems patients bring to us and allows us to restore their smiles. We may recommend a dental crown to:
- Restore a tooth extensively damaged by decay or trauma
- Protect a tooth after root canal therapy and restore its shape
- Improve a tooth's shape or size to create a more beautiful smile
- Replace a missing tooth by pairing a crown with a dental implant
- Secure a traditional dental bridge to replace missing teeth

Choosing the Right Type of Crown Material
It's an Art and a Science
Dentists have a wide variety of ceramic dental materials to choose from today, from porcelain crowns to zirconia, but it takes a skilled dentist to select the right material for a specific procedure.
Crowns at the front of the mouth require a high degree of aesthetic appeal while crowns at the back need to withstand the daily grinding forces that occur with every meal. We can make crowns out of metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, zirconia, and IPS e.max to address these varied situations.
Our knowledgeable dentists at 38th Street Dental in Austin will carefully balance all the factors in selecting your crown material to ensure it has the beauty and durability you'll appreciate for years to come.
Treatment Timeline for a Dental Crown Long-Lasting Results
We offer fully personalized treatment plans based on your goals and create crowns using high-quality dental materials such as zirconia, IPS e.max, and porcelain for years of dependable smiles.

Can I Just Have the Tooth Pulled?
If you’re faced with a decayed or decaying tooth, you may be wondering if simply extracting it is the right course of action — especially if you’re not worried about a gap being noticeable. However, our dentists will always save a tooth when it’s viable to do so. Having a tooth pulled risks the alignment of your other teeth, which can cause bite issues down the line. Additionally, a missing tooth root can result in bone loss and make chewing and biting substantially more challenging.
To learn more about the risks of not pursuing a restorative solution — such as an implant-supported dental crown — after tooth extraction, we encourage you to get in touch with our team today.
Prioritizing Patient Comfort With Sedation Dentistry
Whether we’re placing a single crown over a weakened tooth or crafting several dental implants to restore form and function to your smile, with us, patient comfort comes first. If you experience anxiety about dental care or have trouble sitting for long periods, we offer oral conscious and nitrous oxide sedation to make your procedure more comfortable.
