4 Main Benefits of a Dental Crown

Marietta GA Dentist Office near meYou may not be thrilled about getting a dental crown, but getting this protective restoration may be your only option for repairing a tooth and keeping it for several more years. Fortunately, it brings along these great benefits.

A Strong and Comfortable Bite

A “cap” ensures that a decayed or damaged tooth can keep right on working. Your dental crown shouldn’t feel any different from a natural tooth. You can still enjoy all the foods you love. If you didn’t crown the tooth, you would eventually have to avoid chewing on that side of your mouth altogether.

No More Sensitivity

Your tooth may be a little sensitive for the first few days after getting a crown. But this is usually temporary. You’ll adjust to the restoration and soon be able to have hot and cold foods again. Without the crown, cavities or cracks in the tooth could make it extremely sensitive.

Save What’s Left of Your Tooth (and Avoid a Root Canal!)

Dental crowns are a key defense against more drastic procedures, like a tooth extraction. You’ll need a crown anyway after getting a root canal, but getting your tooth capped earlier could help you avoid that root canal altogether.

Beautiful and Confident Smiles

White porcelain dental crowns blend in perfectly with natural teeth. You may need a dental crown just to fix a tooth with major cosmetic issues, if veneers aren’t an option. In that case, a crown is a lasting and gorgeous smile solution.

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!
