Repairing Teeth in San Antonio TX
Most dentistry looks like dentistry. Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We replace existing dental crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth.
Where damage to a person’s teeth is extreme, and apparently beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain “pasted on gold” crowns to make the smile appear “as new”. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe of dental problems, even permanently replacing missing teeth to offer a complete smile and a functional bite. We are renowned for the quality of our work and the fantastic changes we make for people using this technology. These treatments are used for a long-lasting correction of major dental problems. It is usual for these treatments to last for 20 to 30 years, which is as close to permanent as dental treatment can get.

How long does it take to fit a dental crown?
Fitting a dental crown requires at least two visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a temporary crown of either plastic or metal.
On the subsequent visit, we will remove the temporary crown and then fit and adjust the final crown. Finally, we will cement the crown into place and you have a new beautiful looking tooth.

What are the capabilities of dental crowns?
Crown and bridgework is a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases or wear and tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. Material used in these repairs is either high-grade porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold. A higher strength of the porcelain and gold materials is recommended to treat the most serious of dental problems. Where accidental damage has occurred, resulting in lost teeth, or where teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or as the result of old fillings breaking, dental crowns and/or dental bridges can be used as a long-term solution.
Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth, which is usually due to hairline cracks in the chewing part of the tooth. Placing dental crowns on these teeth relieves the pain and allows a return of full dental function for these teeth. In front teeth, older fillings can both weaken the teeth and cause “appearance” problems due to staining or chipping. Porcelain crowns and bridges are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not. In teeth with root canal fillings, dental crowns can prevent breakage.

Patient Review By Cynthia K
I received the best care imaginable! On the worst weather day of the year, Dr Bryhn drove on icy roads to provide me with the care I needed. He offered a conservative care plan that allowed me to keep the tooth that my dentist told me wasn't possible. He preformed a root canal procedure the same day even though I booked the appointment for an extraction which requires much less time. The procedure went very well and I was comfortable during the entire process. His office staff is amazing also! So professional, friendly, and committed to good quality care that it lets you know you are in good hands. The day after my procedure I received a call from Dr Simmons office to make sure I was doing well. All I can say is, this practice is the example that all medical practices should aspire to!

Dr Bryhn answered all my questions and most of all is "down to earth professionally casual"....which allowed me to go through dental procedures without the anxiety of past years with other offices. He immediately builds a trust level and doesn't go overboard with what I deam " addt'l unecessary procedures or x-rays". Is young and extremely well educated with the latest successful procedures. The overall office environment respected MY time and focused on best avenues to benefit ME. A great group with sound...tried and true practices.

Ten years ago I had neglected my own dental health due to being the primary caregiver for my wheelchair dependent husband. Finally I had no choice but to seek treatment. Living 120 miles away I had to transport my husband and schedule an appointment conveying to the staff my dilemma. Once my proposed treatment was accepted -- numerous roots canals, fillings and crowns, treatment not only began but Drs. Wayne and Bryhn Simmons arranged their schedule to accomplish all of the extensive treatment in 3 days. Not only did I receive outstanding treatment for my mouth but I received the individual treatment which made a difference in my situation. Thanks to the doctors and the staff, M.F.B., Aransas Pass, Tx
