Dental Crowns: Those Questions That Make You Feel Unsure

You’re sure that we’re being honest with you when we check your smile and inform you that you need a dental crown. However, there are some areas of uncertainty that make you feel less than sure you’re ready to come in and receive that restoration. We want you to feel completely confident about protecting your current and future oral health with our services, of course, which is why we prefer you let us know what’s causing you to feel uneasy. Start off with Q’s and A’s that may help and let’s move on from there during your visit!

Questions and Answers

Question: Am I ever going to get used to the fact that I have a dental crown in my smile or will it feel extremely strange forever?

Answer: Of course! At first, you will notice that the restoration is not identical to your natural teeth and you’ll sense it. However, very quickly, your brain will accept that this is your “new tooth” and you will completely adapt!

Question: Are people going to see the dental crown in my smile and immediately know that it’s an artificial tooth?

Answer: Nope. People are going to think the crown is your tooth. This is because of the use of lifelike materials to craft your crown. They mimic natural tissue in shine and translucency. It’s also because we customize the color and because we shape the crown to fit beautifully with your smile.

Question: What are some common reasons I may end up needing a dental crown?

Answer: The reason you need a crown may be to support a weakened tooth and protect it from breaking, to cover and protect an already broken tooth, to address a tooth with severe decay, to cover and protect a tooth after a root canal (and more).
