Why Do I Need A Dental Crown?
One of the first things so many patients ask when they find out they need a crown, is if they could just get a filling instead. However, there are some cases where a filling won’t do the job, and it could leave the tooth vulnerable to further deterioration and decay.
Here are some of the most common reasons patients need a dental crown:
- Oversized, failing fillings that are breaking or leaking
- Teeth that have been broken or fractured due to trauma
- Large, deep-rooted areas of decays
- Teeth that have been severely worn down over time
- Post non-surgical root canal treatment
- To help improve your bite and function
- To boost your smile’s appearance
Whatever the reason or reasons Dr. Bodie may recommend a dental crown for you, you can take comfort in knowing your smile is in the best hands possible with access to some of the best, leading-edge technology and treatments available in dentistry today. Creating and placing your custom dental crown is an extremely reliable technique that’s been used for decades to repair severe dental problems. Dr. Bodie and his team are renowned for the quality of their work and the fantastic changes they make in the lives of every single one of their dental patients. We stand by dental crowns as a long-term solution for various dental problems that are expertly designed to last for 20 to 30 years or more.
How Long Does Dental Crown Treatment Take to Complete?
Generally speaking, your dental crown fitting will take two separate visits to our Richardson, TX dental office. Initially, we’ll take the time to remove any decay from your damaged tooth, shape it, and then fit it with a temporary crown while your new custom crown is being created in the lab. The next time we see you, we’ll cement your permanent crown into place ensuring you’ve got a comfortable fit and a fantastic, whole smile.
We hope you’ll consider talking to Dr. Bodie about your dentistry options. Dental crowns are an excellent, trusted way to replace missing teeth, fix broken or badly damaged teeth, and transform your smile into something functional.
