High Quality Tooth Crowns in San Antonio

Has your tooth been compromised by injury or decay? At Cosmetic Dentistry of San Antonio, we are happy to offer you the perfect solution in the form of dental crowns. This technology is a simple, yet effective, fix, perfect for protecting a damaged tooth from further damage, as well as for covering discolored or misshapen teeth. It can even be used to hide root canals, broken teeth, and large fillings!

A More Natural Implant for a Whiter Smile

As part of our commitment to giving you a beautiful smile, we specialize in crafting porcelain crowns. This material will look the most natural, and will be nearly undetectable compared to the rest of your teeth. This procedure will take place over two appointments.

During the first, we will take an impression of your tooth, then fit you with a temporary tooth. This will allow you to continue enjoying eating, talking, and smiling while we create its permanent counterpart. By the time your next appointment arrives, that perfect replacement will be ready, where we will be sure to test its fit, appearance, and bite before permanently affixing it in place!

Minerva Montalvo | Patient Testimonial
On my first day back at work, everybody was wowed!\" After years of trying different treatments to improve her deteriorating smile, Minerva finally found Dr. Camacho. Watch her share her experience with Cosmetic Dentistry of San Antonio and how her new smile has brightened her life.

The first day I came into work everybody was like WOW! We live in San Eco pass and that is about 250 miles from here it was 10 years ago actually. A friend had come to Dr. Camacho and I was having a lot of problems so she referred me to him! I like to smile all the time so I had to do something because my front teeth were getting very bad. The very first day he explained what was wrong and exactly what had to be done. I had done some bridges and canal roots and all sorts of things because my teeth were very bad and so that is the first thing people see auto you and then one time I was shopping and a little boy told me you have the whitest teeth! And that felt so good because even kids notice your teeth! You know, so I felt that people should take care of their teeth – you know you spend a lot on purses, a lot on cars, but you have to spend something on yourself. The experience I have had – 10 years I have been coming and I have not had any problems they are very efficient they keep their appointment to the T you know you don’t have to wait, they tell you your appointment is at such an hour and you can come in. they have always been helpful with questions and explaining everything just like you take care of your car you have to take care of your teeth and just became it is done it is not the end of it. Thank you very much because you have made me very happy – so grateful. Thank you to the staff and Dr. Camacho especially.

Dental crowns are a great way to repair damaged teeth. It not only restores function but also beautifies and cosmetically enhances your smile.

What is a dental crown?

Hello, my name is Dr. Edward Camacho of Cosmetic Dentistry of San Antonio. I want to visit with you today about what a dental crown is.

Our teeth naturally have an outer protective layer over them of enamel which is the strongest substance in the body, ideally designed to last a lifetime.

Unfortunately, the enamel on our teeth can be damaged. Depending on how much damage has occurred to the enamel, we sometimes need a crown to repair it.

A crown is an artificial replacement for the natural protective layer over our teeth of enamel.

When can someone get a dental crown done?

If you can think of a cover or a CAP over a tooth of enamel, you remove the damaged CAP and replace it with a brand new outer layer.

A crown can repair a tooth that has a corner missing, a tooth that may have broken off, etc. A crown can rebuild that back to its original size and shape.

Crowns protect teeth that have endured additional damage and might have needed a root canal treatment as well.

Crowns not only have the function and purpose of rebuilding and strengthening teeth but also for beauty and cosmetic purposes.

When we’re dealing with front teeth and making beautiful smiles, crowns are used for cosmetic reasons.

Give us a call today and get the perfect smile you always wanted with dental crowns.
