Questions and Answers: Crowns
Question: Is it true that my tooth is really going to look not only whole again but also like a real tooth?
Answer: Yes! This is absolutely true and one of the major benefits of receiving a dental crown. While you may opt for a metal crown for very back teeth, we offer all-porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM), as well as zirconia crowns. As a result, you can achieve a natural tooth finish if you so desire.
Question: I’m worried that receiving my dental crown is going to be very time consuming or uncomfortable but everyone keeps reassuring me that it will be fine. Can you speak to this?
Answer: Of course. You generally need only two visits until final placement, so it’s quite convenient. As for your comfort, placement is simple! However, if you feel nervous, we will be happy to accommodate you with a light sedative.
Question: The idea of having a dental crown in my smile makes me feel like I can’t go about life as usual. Will I have to change my eating habits or dental hygiene?
Answer: Nope! Keep eating as you usually do (practicing caution as you would for natural tooth tissue) and brushing, flossing, and scheduling prevention with our practice.
