What Are Dental Crowns?
In some cases, teeth that have sustained significant decay or damage can be fixed using a crown restoration. Our modern office is pleased to provide these dental restorations to people in and around Frisco, TX to protect and cover the aesthetic portion of a tooth while recovering a more natural cosmetic appearance and function. Crown restorations are custom-designed to blend beautifully with the surrounding teeth and are often placed to fix teeth that are fractured, have dental cavities, are oddly shaped, or have other forms of oral damage. Crowns may also be melded into an appliance to function as a dental bridge or positioned over dental implants to restore a tooth that is missing. Schedule an appointment with our dental practitioners at Advanced Smiles to decide if a custom dental crown can boost your oral health and smile.
What to Expect After Dental Crowns
Once your permanent dental crown has been placed, you'll care for it just like you would your natural teeth - with brushing, flossing, and rinsing twice daily. It takes about one day for the bonding agent to fully cure, so it's best to stick with soft foods for about 24 hours. In the next few days or weeks after your treatment is complete, you may have sensitivity, tenderness, and soreness, but these should resolve quickly and allow you to begin enjoying your favorite foods and beverages. Still, you'll want to avoid overly hard, sticky, and crunchy foods - along with staining beverages like tea and coffee - to keep your dental crowns strong, healthy, and beautiful for as long as possible.

Am I a Candidate for a Dental Crown?
Frisco, TX women and men might benefit from having a crown restoration performed to fix various dental conditions, improve their bite function, and enhance the aesthetics of a tooth. Some of the more common reasons for placing a dental crown include:
- Cracked or fractured teeth
- Severely worn or eroded teeth
- Teeth that are misshapen or discolored
- Significant decay
- Teeth with large, failing fillings
- Teeth treated with a root canal
- Dental bridges for replacing missing teeth

At Advanced Smiles, custom crown restorations can be performed for the front or back teeth, and might be created from top-grade ceramic or additional cosmetic materials, porcelain fused to a metal substrate, or a high-noble metal (like gold). Dr. De Paoli can evaluate your tooth or teeth and help you choose the ideal type of crown procedure for your personal dental needs and aesthetic goals.
The Dental Crown Procedure
Dental crown procedures for Frisco, TX individuals typically take place in two phases. During the first appointment, Dr. De Paoli will anesthetize your mouth and can provide sedation dentistry to elevate your comfort level if you desire. When the damaged portion has been cleared away, a professional dental laboratory will capture and utilize an impression of the treated tooth to generate your unique restoration. A provisional restoration will be worn on your treated tooth to allow for oral function and a natural appearance while your custom dental crown is being constructed. We will have you come back into Advanced Smiles about 14 – 21 days later so that you can have the temporary taken off and your new dental crown bonded to your tooth or dental implant.
Dental Crowns Reviews
This visit was regular cleaning and checkup. Sandy, the hygienist, was so gentle it was a treat. Dr. DePaoli found no new problems, and the partial he made several years ago still fits snug, chews comfortably and looks great! In the 14 years Dr. DePaoli has taken care of my dental needs, we've done root canal, crowns, filings, and redesigned the partial to add a tooth when one of mine had to be removed. He's the epitome of "painless" Dentist, and talks me through every step. Stephanie and the front office staff make scheduling appointments, processing insurance go smooth. I highly recommend Advanced Smiles for your family and cosmetic dentistry needs.
I cannot say enough good things about this practice or recommend them enough. I’ve been a patient here for a few years now and I love how they care about me and my overall dental health. I never feel rushed or like I can’t ask questions. During more involved procedures like root canals and crowns, Dr. De Paoli explains what to expect, takes his time and makes sure you’re as comfortable as possible. I’ve always hated going to the dentist, even had a lot of anxiety about it, and since going here, I’m now totally comfortable going. This is a trustworthy practice that knows what they’re doing and I’m so happy I found them.
Since I began going to Advanced Smiles, I have had my teeth cleaned once and two crowns. I had asked my PCP for a recommendation and she highly recommended Dr. De Paoli. So far, I've had my teeth cleaned once and two crowns. Very pleased with Dr. De Paoli and his staff. After living in the Frisco area for 5 years, I have a dentist I have confidence in and he also has a friendly and professional staff. Later this month, I have another appointment to have my teeth cleaned.
Very clean and professional facility with latest technology for X-rays and Temporary Crown. I was very happy with the procedure being explained fully and step by step progress.
I’ve had massive amounts of dental work done since I was 18, and now I’m 70. Crowns, bridges, veneers, root canals, gum treatments, implant, you name it. So when I say this is a state-of-the-art dentist and dental practice, I know from years of experience what’s great and what isn’t! And this is the best office I’ve ever been to. Dr. DePaoli is thorough, considerate, gentle, and explains what he’s doing and why. His staff is fantastic - friendly, cheerful, highly trained, and accommodating. I’m fact, I had the best teeth cleaning experience there that I’ve had in probably 10 years (and I normally get 3-4/year). Don’t hesitate to book an appointment.
