When the surface area of a tooth becomes damaged, our dentists near you at Palmetto Family Dental can restore its appearance and functionality with a dental crown to prevent further (and potentially more costly) damage from occurring. If you suspect that your smile could benefit from a dental crown procedure, we invite you to make an appointment with our dentists in Palmetto, Zebulon, and McDonough, GA to learn more about this widely used dental therapy.
Common Uses for Dental Crowns Near You
Often considered one of the workhorses in cosmetic and restorative dentistry, dental crowns are most often used to protect teeth that have becomes weakened and are at risk of total tooth loss. A few examples include:
- Teeth that have cracked
- Teeth that have become worn down from teeth grinding
- Teeth that can no longer accommodate a dental filling without the risk of breakage or total tooth loss
Dental crowns are also routinely used as the last step during a dental implant procedure, root canal therapy, and dental bridge treatment.
Dental Crowns Are Impressively Durable
In addition to their range of use in cosmetic and restorative dentistry, another benefit that patients appreciate about dental crowns is their durability. With proper care and regular dental check-ups, a dental crown can last up to 30 years. When you visit our dentists for your exams and teeth cleaning, we’ll also check your dental crown to ensure that it’s on track for the durability that they are known for.
What to Expect During Your Treatment
Since dental crowns are used across such a broad spectrum of treatment protocols, every patient’s experience will be individual to them. However, we’ll provide you with complete information about your dental crown procedure so you’ll know what to expect pre-procedure, during your procedure, and post-procedure. If you’re concerned about discomfort or anxiety during your dental crown procedure, make sure to ask us about sedation dentistry available from our dentists near you.
