Have a perfect shape and size smile with Dental Crowns in the Houston Area with Dr. Peters!
A Porcelain Dental Crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain (tooth colored crown) are the most popular, because they resemble your natural teeth. Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color or your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.

What does getting a crown involve?
A crown procedure usually requires two appointments. Your first appointment will include taking several highly accurate molds (or impressions) that will be used to create your custom crown. A mold will also be used to create a temporary crown which will stay on your tooth for approximately two weeks until your new crown is fabricated by a dental laboratory.
While the tooth is numb, the dentist will prepare the tooth by removing any decay and shaping the surface to properly fit the crown. Once these details are accomplished, your temporary crown will be placed with temporary cement and your bite will be checked to ensure you are biting properly.
At your second appointment your temporary crown will be removed, the tooth will be cleaned, and your new crown will be carefully placed to ensure the spacing and bite are accurate.
You will be given care instructions and encouraged to have regular dental visits to check your new crown.
Dental Crown Procedure Testimonial
My family has used Peters Dental Associates for years. The staff is always friendly. I trust Dr. Peters to provide quality care and only recommend necessary procedures. There have been times when I’ve been told I have old fillings he wanted to watch that may eventually need to be replaced with crowns. It wasn’t until a couple of years later that I was informed it was time for a crown. I’ve heard horror stories from people who have used other dentists that feel they were pressured into unnecessary procedures. I never fear that with Dr. Peters. He is a good Christian man who even prayed with me after one visit when I mentioned a family illness that had me concerned. I know he and his wife are very active in mission work as well.
