Is a Crown Right for You?

Miramar Beach FL Dentist OfficeIf you live in the Santa Rosa Beach area, then you want the best when it comes to finding quality dental care.

Sometimes, providing the best dental treatment involves getting a dental crown.

At Seacrest Dental, we have combined decades of experience in placing beautiful and long-lasting crowns. How do you know if you need one?

Reasons Your Tooth May Need A Crown

Dental “caps” are usually placed because a tooth has lost some of its strength or beauty. So some of the reasons may include:

  • Tooth fracture
  • Decay or an abscess
  • Deep stain
  • Roughened enamel
  • Worn chewing surface

To find out whether a dental crown is the restoration of choice for your smile, you'll need to visit one of our dentists here at Seacrest Dental.

Dental Crown Alternatives

Whether or not you should get a crown is mostly determined by the amount of tooth structure you have. Basically, the less tooth there is, the less choice you have. That's because a crown could be your tooth's last chance to stay in one piece.

If your tooth has only minor damage, other restorations such as inlays, onlays, veneers, or composite fillings may suffice.

What It's Like To Get A Crown

Having a dental crown placed is no worse than getting a filling. You won't feel a thing during treatment. Your restoration may require a couple of separate appointments to finish it, though.

Once your new crown is in place, you'll continue to care for it just as you would any other tooth with daily brushing and flossing. Dental crowns are ideal restorations for patients of all ages. To find out more, schedule your smile consultation with Seacrest Dental.
