When your tooth is damaged or cracked, your whole smile is compromised. Damaged teeth not only distract from your natural smile aesthetics but they also put you more at risk for toothaches, decay buildup, and issues with your bite pattern.
At Linton Dental, we make resolving your dental damage our priority to help you avoid the negative consequences. If you notice your tooth is chipped or cracked, please schedule an appointment with us as soon as possible.
We provide dental crowns to help conceal a damaged tooth while also restoring its functionality within your smile. Patients love our dental crowns because it helps them avoid tooth extraction for a healthy but damaged permanent tooth.
Dental Crowns in Peachtree, GA
Dr. Brian Linton and Dr. Ed Davis are your trusted restorative dentists in Peachtree, GA. They are highly-experienced in providing dental crowns to his patients with cracked or chipped teeth. At Linton Dental, our priority is helping you restore your smile as soon as possible following dental damage.
With our custom dental crowns, you can be assured that your smile restoration will achieve both functionality and natural-tooth aesthetics. Here are some frequently asked questions regarding our dental crowns:
What is the dental crown procedure like?
The dental crown process usually involves two trips to our office. Once it is determined that you need a dental crown, our team will prepare your affected tooth. The tooth will be shaved down to its foundational core to make space for the crown.
A local anesthetic will be used to ensure you experience no pain or discomfort. Once the tooth is prepped for the crown, we will take dental impressions for your permanent crown and place a temporary crown in its place.
The impressions are sent to our labs to create your dental crown. Once it is ready, we will call you back in and place it using dental cement.
Will people notice that I have a dental crown?
No, people should not notice that you have a dental crown. The dental impressions we take help us ensure that your dental crown fits into your smile just as your affected tooth did. The only difference will be the restored aesthetics and functionality.
We color match your dental crown to your surrounding teeth so that it does not distract from your natural smile.
What if my temporary crown comes off before my permanent crown is complete?
If this occurs, please contact our office immediately. We want to help you avoid any discomfort caused by the sensitivity of the exposed dentin of the prepared tooth.
Our team will make every effort to see you as soon as possible and provide you with another temporary crown until your permanent crown is ready for placement.
How long will my dental crown last?
This largely depends on your oral hygiene habits. With proper care, dental crowns can last up to ten years. Just make sure that you are brushing and flossing around your crown on a regular basis.
Schedule regular preventative dental care appointments so that Dr. Linton and Dr. Davis can check on the health of your crown as time goes by.
