    5 star review  Usually, I’m quite anxious and stressed about even calling the dentist, but this place is amazing! I felt absolutely no pain and the procedures that I had were extremely quick. They explain everything in detail about your personalized dental plan and costs. The staff is personable and friendly and the Dr. puts your care and comfort first, plus he has a cool sense of humor. I am happy that I was referred to Longview Family and Emergency Dental!

  • 5 star review  I am 12 years old and i got my teeth pulled and it was very quick and painless! I was in so much pain I couldn’t stand it thank you Dr.Adam for taking care of me! This is his mother Tuesday of last week I woke up with my mouth swollen and In so much I couldn’t stand it! I called around and found Dr.Adams office I called at 5 and they told me to come on in. I arrived at around 6pm at they got me right in and took care of the extraction that needed to be done. Him and his whole staff are so welcoming and really have a way of making you feel comfortable! I highly recommend him to anyone. Fast forward to yesterday my 12 year old had a broken tooth that many other dentists offices in Tyler Texas wouldn’t pull. He woke up Thursday with his jaw swollen and he couldn’t eat and hadn’t slept so I immediately called Dr. Adams office he told me to bring him and I did and man was that a diaster my son wasn’t having it! He didn’t was terrified and just refused to let Dr.Adam do the work. Him and his entire tried their best to try and comfort him but he just wasn’t doing it. Then today he couldn’t take the pain anymore and decided to get them pulled and without hesitation Dr.Adams said to bring him in. And we did and he did an amazing job my son said it was quick and painless and that it wasn’t that bad. If your having a dental emergency definitely go see him!

  • 5 star review  I had a wisdom tooth taken out the same day I called within an hour. The visit was quick and Dr. Zaher was actually really easy during the removal. I felt no pain at all and they really cared about where I could pick up my medication late in the evening. If you need dental work, I would highly recommend, especially with wisdom tooth removal.

  • 5 star review  Great experience with Dr. Zaher and Andrea! My father had to have all of his remaining teeth extracted in preparation for a complete set of dentures, and Dr. Zaher was efficient and pain-free—even with a whole mouth of teeth to extract. Both he and Andrea make their patients feel comfortable and welcome during stressful procedures and are more than willing to answer any questions concerning your care. If you need a dentist in Longview, don’t hesitate to make an appointment with Dr. Zaher.

  • 5 star review  My decision last summer, July, 2021 to call Longview Dental and Emergency Clinic was based on an emergency the day before leaving on an extended vacation. I was overwhelmed at Dr. Adam Zaher’s willingness to work me in immediately and stay into the night to ensure that my teeth were fixed. I found his office staff to be extremely kind, concerned and caring. I appreciate Dr. Adam’s honest assessments and the detailed way he provides options. He spends time to answer any and all questions and concerns. He is such a good dentist and so flexible in his office hours. He proved his willingness again this week - Feb, 2022 when I needed to see a dentist. So glad to have someone as compassionate as Dr. Adam and his wonderful staff. Katina Green

    5 star review  I had a toothache in a tooth that was part of a bridge. As the day went on Saturday the pain got worse. I called the emergency office and spoke to Anna. She said come right in. After X-ray , Dr Adam showed me the infection and the root canal that was not good. He discussed everything he was going to do. He knew I was stressed so he gave me several breaks to get myself a rest. It was a removal that was ,to me, a little tricky. Dr Adam did a great job. I will go back again to implants. I have confidence that all will go fine. The experience was a good one. Anna caked to check on me today. That shows that they care about their patients. Thank you both for making me feel at ease!!!

I was going to wait till Monday to go to a dentist because I was sure every dentist was going to be closed, but I was wrong. I was so happy when I saw that this office was open! I called to make an appointment and right away they got me in. Kierra the front desk receptionist was so sweet and helped me with all my questions, she was super friendly and outgoing!

    5 star review  Extremely friendly and understanding. I was in an unbearable amount of pain and they were very accepting to helping me in my time of need! I’m not in the best financial situation as well, and they made sure I got the work done I absolutely needed and were willing to work with me! I had no problem with scheduling my appointment that day with hardly any notice, finding the office (with hardly any wait once I got there,) them listening and examining to pin point the problem, getting the right pain meds, or getting back in touch after my visit. By far one of the best places to go to. The dental assistant needs a raise! She held my hand when I was in pain and talked me through everything as well as the Doctor himself. I got two molars and one wisdom out at the same time & my healing process has been one of the best by far for any dental work I’ve gotten done. Definitely recommend!!!

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.

 

Crown Bridges

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.

 

 

Implant crowns

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.

 

When you need a crown, talk to your Longview Family and Emergency dental service. They provide dedicated family care and emergency services professionally.

 

 

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.
