5 Signs You Might Need a Dental Crown, Marietta

5 Signs You Might Need a Dental Crown

Female Patient Consulting with Dentist Dunwoody GA Dental crowns can be made from gold, ceramic, or a combination of metal and porcelain. These restorations are versatile and popular in dentistry, so there’s a good chance that you may need one, some day.

One or more of these signs, however, could suggest you need a new dental crown right now.

Constant and Severe Tooth Sensitivity

Tooth enamel protects the weaker, inner layers of your tooth. If you have a tooth that’s lost a lot of enamel to acid erosion or teeth grinding, then it may be extremely sensitive. A crown can protect your bite and give you some relief.

Cracked Tooth

Dental crowns are usually the first treatment option to consider when you have a cracked or chipped tooth. Crowns add strength to teeth that have been weakened by trauma.

Large Cavity

Some cavities leave behind holes that are just too large for a filling to fix. You probably need a dental crown if you have a large cavity, even if it doesn’t hurt.

Old Crown Is Loose

Do you already have a crown? As great as caps can be, the bad news is that they don’t last forever. A loosened or chipped crown is often a sign that it needs to be replaced to keep your tooth healthy.

You Just Had a Root Canal

Most molars that have root canal treatment are too weak to withstand the forces of biting and chewing. Your Marietta restorative dentist will likely encourage you to get that tooth covered right away if it doesn’t already have a crown.

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!
