Why We Recommended a Dental Crown
You went to your dentist for your routine checkup and cleaning and you were told you need a crown. While this isn't the best news you could have received, Dr. David King and his team make the process of completing a crown much more efficient and comfortable than ever before. Here's more information about dental crowns in Huntsville.
Why do I Need a Crown?
You might be wondering why you can't just get a dental filling instead of a crown, and that's a great question. There are a number of reasons that a crown is a better treatment for your tooth such as:
- The fracture or breakdown of an old restoration
- Trauma or an injury to your tooth
- A crack or fracture that is bigger than what a filling can repair
- Excessive wear
- If you've had root canal therapy
A crown replaces your compromised tooth structure while protecting your natural root. It offers all the functionality of your tooth and is designed to match your existing teeth and compliment your smile.
King Dental Makes Getting a Crown Easier
If you've had a crown in the past, you may remember that it was a lengthy process. It required at least two long appointments, while you wore a temporary crown in between. If anything went wrong with your temporary crown, you'd have additional appointments to repair or replace it.
CEREC technology at King Dental has revolutionized the process of getting a crown. CEREC uses 3D technology to scan your tooth, which Dr. King uses to design your new crown. The image of your tooth is sent directly to our milling machine, which fabricates your custom designed restoration while you wait. You'll leave our office the same day with a completed and fully functioning restoration you can rely on.
If you have a tooth in need of repair, we encourage you to contact our office to learn more about how we can help you restore your smile!
