There are times when you can expect a dental crown. For instance, if you’ve talked with us about the best way to approach serious esthetic damage and we have determined that instead of veneers, a crown is going to better suit your needs. Or, you plan on coming in for a root canal treatment and you are aware that finishing that procedure will likely include a crown placement to protect your tooth. However, what about times when you might suddenly need one? Let’s cover some possibilities, so you have an even better grasp of this restorative solution for repairing damage.
You Crack Or Break Your Tooth
If you damage your tooth significantly, such as a crack or broken tissue, you may find yourself at our practice as we suggest you receive a dental crown quite quickly. Here’s what you need to know: A filling can address small openings, such as mild to moderate cavities. However, a cracked or seriously damaged tooth will require a substantially improved structural repair as well as protection from allowing bacteria to invade. A crown will accomplish these details, ensuring your tooth remains where it is and avoids further damage or infection.
We Discover Your Decay Is Advanced
“But I thought cavities required fillings!” you may say to yourself. True, as mentioned, if you are someone dealing with a small to moderately sized cavity, then a filling may suffice. However, if you have lost too much tissue, then we may suggest a dental crown when we see you. This will help you to avoid a tooth that suddenly breaks or crumbles. It will also lock out bacteria, so you can simply enjoy the use of your tooth again without worry. Remember: We offer lifelike crowns (and even crowns in a day) for convenient care and gorgeous results.
