Your Tooth Deserve a Crown!
Having cavities, cracked teeth, misaligned teeth, missing teeth, discolored teeth, and other teeth problems can be easily fixed! A visit to the dentist can help remedy the situation. One of the ways a dentist can fix problems facing our teeth today is through dental crowns.
I had a crown come out unexpectedly, and after regular business hours. They were able to see me immediately, and provided excellent and friendly care. I received very clear after care instructions, and I really appreciated that they took the time to explain everything and answer questions. I will definitely be back!
My daughter was beside herself at having her wisdom teeth removed. Dr. Adam Zaher and his assistant Alma did a wonderful job. And very fast with the removal. This was not our first visit and will not be our last. They worked well with our insurance. The whole office is friendly and open and clean. The real plus is it's open on weekends. Thank you for doing a great job! See you in 6 months.
My husband had an tooth emergency on a Saturday morning. They got him right in and made his pain go away. Great customer service! Great one on one with the dentist. Great place. We will definitely keep them for our family dental needs. Thank y'all so much for everything!
I got my wisdom tooth pulled 2 weeks ago, anyone that has ever known me knows I’m absolutely afraid of dentist always have been. I came in scared for my life, but Dr. Adam and both of his helpers talked me through every step on how it was going to feel during and after the procedure, I can honestly say that this has got to be 1 of the scariest but the most calming and easiest visits I’ve ever had in a dentist office. “My favorite Dentist” 🤗
I don't like the dentist at all but with the help of Andrea everything went smother and fast dentist was amazing thank you all for such a good experience...I will be back for sure!!
Very wonderful dentist!
Everyone took great care of me, the office was clean, and they were all very supportive especially since i was nervous about getting my wisdom tooth removed. Overall great experience!
I highly recommend Dr. Adam Zaher and his staff. They saw me on short notice on a Saturday night. I was very nervous about having my tooth pulled, however they went above and beyond to make me comfortable. The office is nice and extremely clean. And to top it off Andrea periodically checks up on me to make sure I am healing properly. This is definitely my new family dentist 😁😁😁
When I went in it was LATE on a Saturday day night and I was in excruciating pain. The staff was so warm and friendly and made me comfortable. The dentist even turned the air down because I said I was cold. I ended up having to have 3 teeth extracted and they took their time and moved with such care. This is by far one of the BEST experiences I have ever had with a dentist especially with the circumstances in which they saw me. They now have a new regular client in me. I will refer anyone with ears. Plus they are open weekends. AMAZING!!!!
So, I'm a single mother who works business hours and it's nearly impossible for me to get an appointment anywhere for my daughter without taking off work. I finally found this office and they are open SUCH unexpected and convenient hours. I was able to get an appointment for my daughter and not miss work. They were kind and helpful with my daughter, who is not a fan of doctors in general. She left skipping out of the office and that NEVER happens. These people are great! These people have my business in the future, that's for sure.
My experience has been the best ever!!!!!! So professional and so patient. The entire staff treats you with honesty and kindness. Dr. Zaher even played me a little Sam Smith to calm my nerves😊. They guided me through my journey with nothing with my best interest at ❤❤ This year is new journey for me and I'm going into it with a great new smile on my face😁😁😁😁😁.
This was my first time at Longview family and emergency dental care and I will definitely be making this my primary dental office! The dentist,Dr. Zaher, assistant, and receptionist were all very helpful in answering all my questions and very hands on with their explanations. Nothing ever felt rushed, and they made sure I understood everything as they went through different processes. And another pro, they gave me a free electric toothbrush for my first visit! No other dentist office has ever gotten my teeth this clean or educated me so well on dental hygiene. Highly recommended. By the way, the office is super cute, modern and clean. Best overall dentist experience I’ve ever had in my whole life. Thank you so much longview family and emergency dental care.
I love this Dentist Office from the time I walked in to the time I left I felt comfortable and at ease. I needed some teeth pulled they both were giving me pain. Dr Adam Zaher was very friendly he walked me through the steps and made me feel very comfortable about getting my teeth pulled I was so nervous but he encouraged and let me know I was gonna do just fine and I was especially relaxed when he turned the music on. He is a great dentist and is really down to earth. Andrea she is really really sweet. We had a great conversation and she explained to me the steps on how to take care of my mouth after the extraction. I literally called her everyday after I left to ask questions again to make sure I was doing everything right and she had so much patience with me even after waking her up out her sleep at home she was there to answer me. To the new girl sorry I don't remember your name but she was so sweet to. I know you were nervous but you did great just stay encouraged everything will get better for you. I highly recommend this Dentist office the staff are just like family when you have questions or just need them to take a look or something needs to be pulled they will do it. This is a very professional and clean place to go and you will love the staff. You all know I will be back of course. My Dentist Family 5 stars isn't enough I give you all a 10 Thanks again.
I really fell in love with this Dentist Office. When you walk in the atmosphere is great, friendly, homie place. I was in so much pain they seen me the same day. The doctor is so amazing and he has a heart for what he does and put your needs first. If you're looking for a great dentist check this office out. Even open on the weekends
I cant say enough about how great Dr. Adam and his staff/clinic are. Angels among us for sure!! I broke a tooth while eating breakfast this past Sunday. I knew ER wasnt going to be able to help me due to the injury being dental, so I looked and found Dr. Adam. I called and was scheduled for a same day appointment within an hour of me calling. From the moment I walked in, I was treated like family. Dr. Adam was awesome at explaining my case and making sure I understood what needed to be done. The staff do a great job of making sure you understand your cost before starting what you need. Dr. Adam went above and beyond to help me with EVERYTHING I needed, got my issue fixed and had me on my way in no time. He truly cares about his community and giving back in the best way he knows how. I told him I thought he was an angel for being there to help me on a Sunday. I got my emergency handled and found a new dentist all in the same visit. I'm beyond thankful for what he did for me and HIGHLY RECOMMEND him and his clinic to anyone needing a fantastic, caring, get-it-done when you need it, dentist. You wont be disappointed!! Thanks again Dr. Adam! see you again soon!
I am terrified of the dentist. Dr.Adam made me feel comfortable and took care of the pain right away. He was great and he has a wonderful staff! I would highly recommend him to any one looking for a dentist.
I found myself visiting family, far from home, and in terrible pain from a stubborn toothache. I was able to be seen on a Saturday late afternoon and had a wonderful experience... even with needing a root canal and a crown. Dr was extremely helpful, gentle, and ensured a pain free service. I’m grateful for the speedy relief and excellent customer service. Highly recommend.
The only place that would schedule me in the same day came all the way to the clinic just to do my extractions was very professional and very clean i drove all the way from arkansas and i got the best service!!
I had to go in on Sunday very last minute for a tooth extraction and I was terrified but Dr. Adam and Alma were excellent and kept me calm and were very reassuring! Dr. Adam is very funny and he kept me laughing as much as possible and it really helped me to feel more comfortable!
Had to have 2 emergency extractions done late last night. They stayed open late just to see and take care of me. I absolutely recommend this place to anyone who is having any dental issues as my experience here was great. The staff is wonderful, the surgeon is nice and talks with you and makes sure your aware of what is going on. Thank yall so much for helping me in a pinch.
Dr. Adam Zaher not only removed my wife’s wisdom tooth painlessly, but he came in on his own, literally by himself, to perform paper work xrays I mean everything. The whole procedure didn’t last any longer than two hours, and he was so polite and professional! The hours are incredibly convenient. Also he chose The Legend of Korra to play for our son on Netflix. 10/10
My mouth ways killing me. I am so thankful that Longview Family and Emergency Dental Care was open. Dr. Adam was super nice. He helped me out with my tooth pain. He was extremely professional.
Dr. Adam is very thorough in explaining the procedure and costs. The prices are very reasonable, I just had my 4 wisdom teeth removed and I am healing great.
Just in awe! The staff is absolutely outstanding caring loving! And the assistant... wish I could remember her name! She was incredible!! Went in being terrified and they made it a point to make me feel good physically and emotionally! I am so thankful to have found this place! 4 teeth extracted 2 wisdom teeth and 2 molars and he did an amazing job! Thank you Dr. Adam! 🤎
The best place to go if you need dental work done! I got one of my wisdom teeth extracted it took him 5 seconds to pull it out. Quick and painless! And the woman at the desk was extremely nice and very helpfull! Thank you guys so much!
I am terrified every time I step foot in a dentist office. I have gone to the same dentist for years. I had an emergency and needed to be seen. I called this office and they had me scheduled for the SAME day. I told Andrea how nervous I was and she calmed me over the phone. When I arrived I almost immediately went into the patient room. I told Dr. Zaher how my regular dentist does things and told him how scared I was to try someone new. He assured me I was in good hands. I trusted him. He did exactly how my normal dentist did and went above and beyond with my treatment and care! He made me feel as comfortable as possible and I felt no pain! His staff was friendly and checked on me regularly. I would highly recommend this facility! They made me feel like welcomed and comfortable with their exceptional hospitality!
Amazing dentist! Very attentive, and professional. Fixed a very deep cavity, and my tooth no longer hurts. I highly recommend.
Hands down best dental care I have ever experienced! I was terrified to have 3 of my wisdom teeth removed, but Dr. Zaher and his staff at Longview family and emergency dental made the process so comfortable and without any pain! I was told about all my options and had all my questions answered clearly. I happened to go back again for a filling and once again great care and service! I am so thankful I found this dental clinic, honest and great care! Thank you !!
Awesome treatment, helped when I was in pain. Even on a weekend.
My husband and I recently visited their office. My husband had a severe tooth ache and found their after-hours office near our home. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and professional. The day we arrived for his procedure they made us feel like family. My husband felt little discomfort and NO PAIN during the extraction! Alma was so sweet and thourogh. We would recommend this team to anyone who needs work done! Thank you all 🙏🏽 The Johnson's
What are dental crowns?
A dental crown is a cap shaped like a tooth that is placed over a damaged tooth to cover it. This tooth covering also helps restore its shape, size, strength, and helps to improve its appearance. The crown is put into place using cement and it fully encases the portion of the tooth that is visible at and above the gum line.
Dental crowns are used for many purposes. It can be used to replace a large filling when there is very little tooth remaining. It can protect a weak tooth from being fractured. It can be attached to a dental bridge. It can cover a dental implant. If your tooth is discolored or poorly shaped, a dental crown can cover it. After a root canal treatment, it is required that a dental crown be placed on the treated tooth. And dental crowns are great for cosmetic modifications.
When there are missing teeth, the remaining teeth can move into the space. This results in a bad bite. Missing teeth can also create an imbalance that can lead to gum disease and TMJ disorders.
This gap between the missing teeth can be bridged with a dental bridge. A dental bridge consists of 3 or more dental crowns and pontics or false teeth, that are fused and placed over several teeth. This helps fill the missing teeth. When the bridge is cemented in place, the visible portion of the anchor teeth will be fully encased.
When there are natural teeth on both sides of the gap created by the missing teeth, traditional crown bridges can be used. But there is a downside to this. The dentist will need to reshape the adjacent teeth by removing their enamel so that the crowns can be cemented on top. These teeth will then have to always be protected with crowns since their enamel will never grow back.
The Procedure For Getting a Crown or Bridge
A topical anesthetic will first be applied by the dentist to the general area to make it numb. Then local anesthesia is applied to the gum and around the areas where the prep work will take place.
When getting the first shot, the patient will feel a slight pinch in the area. And since the area gets numb quite quickly, the succeeding shots are seldom felt at all. When the patient is adequately numbed, the dentist will begin the crown or bridge prep. There will be no pain felt at all by the patient.
After the prep, impressions of the prepped tooth or teeth will be taken so that it can be sent to the lab. Your dentist will consult with you regarding the shade and material to be used for your crown or bridge before the case is sent out to the lab.
It will take some time before your crown will be manufactured so the dental team will make a temporary tooth crown or bridge until the permanent crown or bridge arrives. You don’t wear a temporary tooth crown or bridge for a very long time. As soon as your permanent crown or bridge arrives, it should be removed.
When the procedure is completed, you will still feel numb for quite a while. You shouldn’t eat until the numbness wears off so you don’t get a chance to bite your tongue or lip. When the anesthesia wears off, you may feel a slight pain where the shot was given. This is just normal and will soon pass away. No pain medication is usually given. You should consult your dentist if you remain in pain for hours after the procedure.
Dental implants replace the roots of teeth. Attached to dental implants are dental crowns. The only part you see in the mouth is the crown. The implant is surgically placed in the bone of the jaw to which it fuses.
Dental crowns are attached to the implant with the use of screws. To properly connect the implant to the crown, they must be properly placed, so that the crowns emerge through the gum tissues in exactly the right direction.
Maintenance of screw-retained implant crowns is easy. They can keep the implant crown in place and implant-crown components can easily be removed, repaired, or replaced without damaging the implant.
Dental implants can last a lifetime but most implant crowns don’t. Sometimes they need to be replaced or repaired. if they are attached with screws, then it is much easier to replace or repair them. If the crowns are cemented, then it will be more difficult to remove. To facilitate removal, a weaker cement can be used but this can lead to a crown falling off during use because it is insecurely attached.
Types of Dental Crowns
Stainless steel crowns are mostly used for temporary measures. They are prefabricated and used on permanent teeth. While a permanent crown is being made, a stainless steel crown can protect the tooth temporarily.
Metal crowns are made of alloys with high gold or platinum content. Or they can also be made of base-metal alloys. Metal crowns can withstand the forces of biting and chewing and it takes the longest to wear down. They don’t usually chip or break. Its disadvantage is that it is metallic in color and when it is made of gold, then you can expect a high price. These types of crowns are ideal for molars that are out of sight.
Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns can easily match the color of adjacent teeth. This cannot be said of metallic crowns. But the teeth adjacent to this crown can experience more wearing. The porcelain portion of the crown can also easily chip or break. However, this type of crown looks more like normal teeth. But the metal underlying the crown’s porcelain tends to show through as a dark line at the gum line. It is, however, ideal for front or back teeth and for long bridges that need strength from the metal.
All-resin dental crowns are the cheapest kinds compared to other crown types. Over time, they wear down and are more prone to fractures than porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns.
All-ceramic or all-porcelain dental crowns have a great natural color match compared to other crown types. This is ideal for people who are allergic to metals. You can use all-ceramic or all-porcelain crowns for both front and back teeth.
Zirconia crowns are getting very popular today. They are extremely durable and have a very natural look. They are also the strongest among all types of dental crowns. It is colored white but transformations to any shade are allowed so that you can match it with the rest of your teeth. It doesn’t have metal lining at the gums so you can smile with all confidence with it. Zirconia crowns adhere well to your teeth.
BruxZir Zirconia crowns
BruxZir zirconia crown is a brand of Zirconia crown for patients who have the habit of grinding their teeth and who may be prone to break their natural teeth or porcelain restorations. The material has tooth color and is not fused with porcelain. It doesn’t break, chip or crack easily like porcelain. It looks very natural and blends with the surrounding teeth easily.
If you have had porcelain crowns before that has cracked or if you have had metal crowns that have worn out due to continuous chewing or has become very sensitive, consider a BruxZir zirconia crown for a replacement. BruxZir is a strong and aesthetic alternative to traditional crown types.
BruxZir zirconia crowns are made of solid zirconia with no porcelain overlay and so it is very resistant to chipping. The surface of a BruxZir zirconia crown is also very smoothly glazed and helps to reduce the accumulation of plaque. It is virtually unbreakable and is an ideal restoration for bruxers and grinders.
If you want to have a healthy and aesthetically pleasing smile, then this brand of a crown, BruxZir zirconia crown, is your ideal option.

Dental Crown Emergencies
Since permanent dental crowns are bonded to your tooth, you can hardly tell that they are there for years. However, when the crown becomes unstuck or debonded, this can come to an end. If you have undergone dental crown treatment and you are having issues with it, then you need to have immediate medical attention from your dentist. If you lose a crown or if your dental crown gets removed, then it qualifies as a dental emergency.
When you reach the dental office, they will quickly assess the condition of your teeth and the crown. Depending on what has caused your crown to fall off, you may need a new crown, a different type of crown, or a simple replacement. Whatever it is that needs to be done, what is most important is that you don’t delay in going to your dentist. Your Longview Family and Emergency dental service will be there to assist you in your dental needs.
