Why You Should Consider Dental Crowns

Posted .

What have you heard about dental crowns? Have you ever wondered why this dental option could be useful for you and the health of your teeth? In reality, crowns are designed to match the color of your other teeth. However, do you know what happens when you have a crown placed?

Luckily, a crown is a useful treatment option for individuals with a weakened tooth or for someone who has just had root canal therapy. If your tooth has suffered trauma, is injured, has a crack, or has extensive tooth decay, this treatment could be a great solution. However, did you know that you may have to wait a few weeks before your permanent crown is placed? Fortunately, our team can place a temporary crown to keep your teeth healthy.

Please don’t misunderstand, while you may have to go back to the dental office for your permanent crown, these temporary crowns are helpful because they can provide you with many of the same benefits as a permanent crown, even though these temporary crowns might be made of plastic or metal. Temporary crowns are also attached to your teeth with an adhesive that can be removed fairly easily once your permanent tooth is ready.
