Dental Crowns Questions: Helping You Feel Confident!

Not feeling so hot about the visit you’re supposed to schedule for a dental crown? Are you all about doing what needs to be done to make sure your smile is nice and healthy but there’s something about having to receive a crown that puts you a bit on edge? As you’ve probably already noticed on your own, you have questions that are bugging you and, as a result, that’s the reason you don’t feel ready and confident just yet about this crown. Let our team help. At our Virginia Beach, VA practice, we know that sometimes, all you need is some additional information!

Won’t Bacteria Be Trapped Under There?

Nope. As you already recognize, when we perform restorative dental care for our patients, our goal is to remove the bacteria causing problems and to then seal it out, so it cannot reenter tissue to cause additional infection. When you receive a dental crown with us, we follow a strategic procedure to remove decay, infection, bacteria, etc., before placing the crown and creating a seal.

Why Can’t I Have A Different Treatment?

You may wonder why we have chosen a dental crown instead of something else. Maybe you think a filling would do the trick. However, we don’t suggest crowns for any reason other than that other solutions will not suffice. If a filling would have worked, it would have been our first suggestion. Remember that we practice something called conservative care, which means we offer the least intensive treatment first (that offers the best preservation of your natural tissues) and go on from there.

Is Everyone Going To Notice My Crown?

You may also ask yourself if you’re making a good choice for your oral health by saying yes to a dental crown, if you’re making a wise decision for the function of your smile, but if you are maybe making a less than desirable choice for the esthetics of your grin. Fortunately, we offer crowns in a variety of materials, so you don’t have to worry about esthetics. Particularly when the tooth is visible, you’ll be relieved to know our lifelike options will fix your tooth and offer a lovely finish.
