Dental Crowns are a cosmetic dentistry procedure to enhance your smile’s aesthetic and address any decay that has weakened, discolored or cracked teeth over time. While this kind of crown may not have been your first choice for royal treatment, it is actually a very common procedure and solution for improving your dental health. At Krengel Dental, we work with you to identify if a crown is the best treatment with our experienced cosmetic dentists by your side. Here are three common questions (and answers) about crowns.
1. Why would I need a crown?
A crown is a common procedure that can be recommended by your Krengel dentist for a variety of reasons which include fixing a worn or discolored tooth or protecting a tooth that is likely to crack or split. A crown helps to restore teeth that are already broken and can also be used as an implant to replace a missing tooth. Your Krengel dental may suggest a crown if we notice a crack on a tooth that needs restoration or an area on a tooth that needs enhancement or protection. No matter what, we will let you know why a crown may be the best treatment.
2. Does a crown look like a natural tooth?
Yes! With our experienced and talented cosmetic dentists, Dr. Krengel and Dr. Pound, you and your smile are in great hands. Whether you need one crown, an implant, or the restoration of many teeth, we use our technology and art to match the color of your natural teeth. Your Krengel dentist will also work with you to identify the best look for a natural looking smile, taking your personal features into account.
3. Does getting a crown hurt?
A crown procedure is pain free! With our advanced technology, you can expect more comfortable cosmetic dentistry from your experienced team. While every patient is different and may feel a different level of discomfort, we make sure you are comfortable throughout the procedure. Your Krengel Dental team will always talk you through the procedure and check in about sensitivity, discomfort and update you with any information.
