3 Reasons You Need a Dental Crown

Dental crowns are a common dental restoration that can be used to address a variety of dental issues. At Dental Care Center at Kennestone in Marietta, we often recommend dental crowns to our patients for the following reasons:

  • You Just Had a Root Canal – After a root canal procedure, the tooth may be weakened and more susceptible to damage. A dental crown can be placed over the tooth to provide added support and protection. This can help prevent further damage and prolong the life of the tooth.
  • Your Tooth Has a Very Large Cavity – When a cavity is too large to be filled with a traditional filling, a dental crown may be recommended. The crown can be placed over the remaining tooth structure to protect it from further damage and restore the tooth’s functionality.

There’s an Old, Large Filling That Needs to be Replaced

Over time, large fillings can weaken and may need to be replaced. A dental crown can be placed over the remaining tooth structure, providing additional reinforcement to the weak enamel that’s left. This can help prevent further damage and prolong the life of the tooth.

At Dental Care Center at Kennestone, we believe in taking a conservative approach to dental care. However, in some cases, a dental crown may be necessary to restore the health and function of a tooth. Our team of experienced dental professionals will work with you to determine the best treatment plan for your individual needs.

If you think you may need a dental crown, or if you have any questions about dental restorations, please don’t hesitate to contact us at Dental Care Center at Kennestone. We are committed to providing the highest quality dental care to our patients and look forward to serving you!

I absolutely love this dental experience. I used to dread having to make dental trips but since finding this office 4 years ago that took the dread away. From making the appointment, to visiting with the office staff. It's great. The Hygienist is very friendly. But that Dr. O,
she is a ray of sunshine. Perfect bedside manner, concerning, caring, helpful, and so very positive. I do not have dental insurance and could go somewhere else that may be a tad cheaper but I wouldn't trade this dental office for the world. They feel more like family. Give them a try you won't regret it!


I am very happy I came to this dental office! I tend to avoid going to the dentist because of past experiences, but my visit today was 10/10!! The dental hygienist, Kelly, and Dr. Buffington were so nice and thorough. I highly recommend! So happy I found a good and nice dental office finally!! :)

Always a great experience when I come in for cleanings or any work that has to be done. Special thanks to my hygienist Kelli for a good cleaning today and making me feel comfortable. Dr. Buffington is also terrific and very attentive. The entire staff will make you feel welcome and comfortable.

I have been a patient here for many years. I’ve always had positive experiences. I especially like the Dental Hygenist “Callie”. She is just the best, always smiling and cheerful, just what you need at the Dentist. She is very experienced and I’ve learned a lot from her. All the Staff is very nice and polite and Dr Buffington is great also. I’ve had a lot of dental work done by her and never had a problem. She is very gentle and painless too!
