Is There A Crown In Your Future?
Do you need a dental crown but haven’t yet scheduled your appointment? Receiving any dental treatment shortly after it is recommended is ideal. Delaying dental treatment can lead to serious complications with your oral health now and in the future. If you have been postponing your crown treatment because you are nervous or unsure of what the procedure entails, we want to share more about what to expect to help you feel more comfortable. Dental crowns are one of the most common treatments we provide to patients, so even if you don’t need a treatment at this time, there is a good chance you or a loved one may need one at some point in the future. Read on to learn more about dental crowns.
Advantages of Dental Crowns
If we recommend a dental crown for you or a loved one, it’s important to schedule your appointment as soon as possible. Dental decay does not heal on its own and will continue to progress and worsen until you receive treatment. We would hate for you to wait too long and then have to perform a different, more involved treatment. A dental crown can treat a variety of problems with your teeth and can:
- Improve the appearance of a tooth
- Provide the needed structure to a cracked or broken teeth
- Restore a tooth that has a cavity too large for a filling
- Improve the support of a tooth that is worn from grinding
- Replace a tooth following a root canal or dental implant
Getting a dental crown is a multi-step process and will require more than one office visit. During the first appointment, the damage to the original tooth structure will be removed and a temporary crown placed. During the second appointment, the permanent dental crown will be placed.
If you need a dental crown or another dental treatment, or you need to schedule an oral hygiene examination or cleaning, now is a great time to contact our office in Burton, MI to schedule an appointment. We would hate for any dental insurance benefits you have remaining to expire at the end of the calendar year. We look forward to seeing you soon.
