Crowns & Bridges in Katy, TX
If you have teeth that are severely decayed, damaged or missing, you can turn to Heritage Dental in Katy, TX. Dr. Nguyen leads our practice as a gentle dentist who carries extensive skill and talent in restorative dental procedures. We use crowns and bridges to restore both function and aesthetics to your smile, for now and years to come. Patients can trust that we use the highest quality materials and advanced technique to ensure you achieve long lasting results in the safest, most efficient ways possible.
A dental crown is used to cover or “cap” a tooth that is cracked or damaged. It is also frequently placed on top of a dental implant to replace a missing tooth. Crowns are meant to provide protection and strength, while allowing it to look and feel like your natural tooth. At Heritage Dental, we ensure your crown is custom made to match your existing teeth in color, shape and size. For patients who are missing multiple teeth in a row, a tooth bridge may be suggested. A bridge attaches to crowns placed on either side of the gap to enable and support your prosthetic teeth.
Cosmetic Dental Crowns
At Heritage Dental, we understand the importance of a well-placed and high quality crown. Dr. Nguyen combines his skilled precision and talented artistry to deliver beautiful cosmetic dental crowns. Our tooth-colored crowns are made from the safest, most durable materials. They represent a full-coverage cap that restores all visible surfaces of your tooth above the gum line. You may benefit from a cosmetic dental crown in the following situations:
- To strengthen a tooth after major trauma or severe decay
- To restore moderate to severe fractures
- As a dental implant restoration
- Following a root canal treatment
- To fix discolored, misshapen or gapped teeth
If your tooth is cracked beneath the gum line, rest assured that Dr. Nguyen can handle this too. You may need crown lengthening, which is a surgical procedure that reshapes your gums and exposes the damage in order to place a new restoration.
Regardless of the reason for your dental crown or bridge, you can expect superior, patient-centered care at Heritage Dental. We go out of our way to make sure our patients are comfortable and well informed throughout their procedures. We offer a variety of sedation dentistry options and our office environment is equipped with modern amenities to keep you at ease.

Dental Crown FAQs
How long do dental crowns last?
Dental crowns can last anywhere from five to fifteen years, but they can last even longer when treated with care. The best way to extend the lifespan of your dental crown is by following a comprehensive oral care routine at home and visiting our office for regular dental exams and cleanings.
Does getting a dental crown hurt?
The dental crown application process involves injecting a local anesthetic into the gums near the tooth. You may feel a pinch when the anesthetic is administered, but then your mouth will be completely numb for the rest of the procedure.
How much does a dental crown cost?
The price of a dental crown treatment varies, but our team always works with patients to make our restorative services as budget-friendly as possible. We are insurance friendly, and we also accept payment plans and offer an in-house dental savers plan.
