Here at Washington Dental Care, our ultimate goal is to help you achieve a healthy, beautiful smile. We know that you have many dental clinics to choose from, so we have worked hard to provide top-notch services and treatments for every customer that walks through our door. If you have a tooth that has been weakened by decay or an injury, then we can offer high quality services such as dental crowns.
If a dentist suggests crowns for teeth in your mouth, then it means that some of the teeth can be saved by placing a protective cap over the tooth. In some situations, the tooth is so weak that it is unable to stand alone and you are risking permanent damage that might cause the tooth to be lost. Other times, dental crowns are used for cosmetic reasons, to improve the appearance of the smile.
When a dental crown is placed over a tooth, there are several steps that need to be completed before the treatment is complete. This process requires two appointments: the first appointment to prepare the tooth and take a mold of the space that needs to be covered, and a second appointment to put the crown in place.
Are you wondering if a dental crown procedure is right for you? Then you should call our office at Washington Dental Care to schedule a consultation with Dr. Peter Hammes. There are a variety of reasons why a person can benefit from dental crowns, and these are some of the most common situations that might require this dental treatment:
Tooth crowns serve two purposes, because they strengthen your teeth and make your smile look great at the same time. If you choose to have a crown placed in your mouth, you can rest assured that it will be durable and long-lasting. The final result is a capped tooth that functions like a natural tooth.
