A Dental Crown Gives You A Reason To Smile Again
Is something wrong with one of your teeth?
If so, it could be affecting you more than you realize.
It may seem small, but a broken tooth can make it more difficult to eat certain foods. A discolored tooth could make you self-conscious about smiling.
And that could leave people thinking you are unhappy or an unfriendly person.
Our dentists at Parkway Dental want you to eat what you want to eat and to feel free to share your smile wherever you may be. A dental crown may be just what you need to do that again.
Let us help you restore or rebuild your smile at our Snellville, GA dentist office.
Common Reasons To Get A Dental Crown
No dental service can fix every problem, but dental crowns are easily one of the most adaptable services that we offer.
Patients come to us with a wide range of problems. Many times dental crowns are part of the solution. Here are just a few examples.
This can happen to anyone at anytime. Taking your eye off the ball during a game of catch, falling while doing chores around the house, or getting distracted and walking into something could leave you with a less than perfect smile.
With a dental crown, your broken or chipped tooth could be back to its full shape and size again.
Do you chew ice? Have you ever bitten down on a piece of hard candy? Did you ever bite into an unpopped kernel of popcorn or the pit of an olive because you didn’t know it was there?
Or d you grind your teeth together while you are sleeping?
All of those issues could leave you with a cracked tooth. A dental crown can repair your tooth before the crack leads to something worse, such as an …
Tooth infections are more common than they should be. When they happen, the best treatment is usually a root canal. If you are having a toothache, then you should contact us before the pain become unbearable.
Infections occur when bacteria are able to get deep inside the tooth where they can cause a soft connective tissue (pulp) to become inflamed. A root canal is how we remove the infection. Afterward, a dental crown is often the best way to restore your tooth’s size and function.
Cavities can often be repaired with a dental filling — if you take care of them quickly. Too often, however, patients will wait until their teeth feel sensitive before they get help. By this time, a filling may not be enough to repair the tooth. In those situations, a dental crown can restore your smile again.
While dental crowns are often used for restorative dentistry, they can have cosmetic benefits as well. A crown can help if you have a tooth that looks small or does not look like you think it should. A dental crown can make your tooth look more like a natural part of your smile.
A dental crown by itself won’t replace a tooth that has been knocked out, has fallen out, or has been removed. But it can be part of your tooth replacement.
Crowns can be fused together to form a dental bridge. You also can place a dental crown on top of a dental implant (which replaces the root of a missing tooth) to give yourself a complete tooth replacement.
Getting A Dental Crown
At Parkway Dental, getting a crown is a simple and painless process. For restorative or cosmetic treatments, we will start by reshaping your tooth to create an abutment. When your crown is complete, we will bond it to your tooth to restore your smile and your ability to eat the foods that you love.
If you are missing a tooth, the process will vary depending on whether you get a bridge or an implant. Either way, you can trust that your crown will look like the rest of your natural teeth when everything is finished.
