Sometimes the dental world can be a little confusing and overwhelming, especially because it seems as though it has a language of its own. Many patients feel this way, and it’s OK if you do too. Our dentist, Dr. Jayson C. Haws, would be happy to help you understand it a little more by teaching you about one of the restorations: a dental crown. To do so, he is happy to answer commonly asked questions about dental crowns in Brigham City, Utah.
What makes someone a good candidate for a dental crown?
If you have a tooth that is weak, severely decayed, broken, and even discolored, you are a good candidate for a dental crown. However, the restoration can only help you if your tooth has a strong core and healthy roots and underlying jawbone.
What can a dental crown do for me?
A dental crown can turn your weak, broken, decayed, discolored, oddly shaped, unhealthy, and unattractive tooth into a tooth that is beautiful, functional, healthy, and strong. It can enhance your smile and improve your oral health in many ways.
Does placing a dental crown hurt?
We work hard to provide comfortable dental treatments at Haws Family Dentistry. Dental crown treatment is no exception. We make sure you feel comfortable and relaxed in the dental chair, no matter what it takes. One way we do so is by numbing the mouth before treatment so you do not feel any discomfort.
