Learn How Dental Crowns Can Help You

A dental crown is a highly versatile restorative dentistry option that completely caps the visible portion of a tooth with a strong shell of tooth-colored material. Before recommending a dental crown, we will thoroughly assess your situation and discuss your concerns and goals with you.

We have provided dental crowns for many reasons over the years at our Leawood, KS dentist office.

If you receive a root canal, we may recommend a dental crown following the procedure so your tooth will be protected against further damage. Contrary to popular belief, root canals are only about as uncomfortable as a tooth filling, but they do require the removal of infected nerves and soft tissue from inside your tooth, so strengthening your tooth may be a wise move.

Teeth can also become weakened from other types of dental treatments. For example, if you have had multiple cavities in a tooth, a dental crown may be necessary to restore the resilience of your damaged tooth.

If you grind your teeth or they have become worn down for some other reason, we can also provide dental crowns to fix your teeth back to their proper shape.

Cracked, broken, or otherwise damaged teeth can often be helped with dental crowns as well. Instead of removing the problem tooth, we can place a dental crown on top of it and fortify it against any further damage.

If you have a single crooked tooth, we can improve your bite and give the tooth the appearance of a better alignment by attaching a dental crown to it instead of relying on time-consuming orthodontic treatments to straighten it.

While typically used for restorative reasons, we can also make a tooth more beautiful with a dental crown. For example, if a tooth has become discolored because of a trauma or other cause, we can place a dental crown on top of it.

We can also completely replace a damaged or missing tooth by attaching a dental crown to a dental implant. As far as tooth replacement options go, this is the next best thing to your natural teeth!

Regardless of why you require a dental crown, we will do everything we can to make your treatment as pleasant as possible. So you won’t feel a thing, we’ll numb your mouth with an anesthetic before we begin. Then, we’ll make room for your custom dental crown by removing some of your tooth structure and bond it in place.

If you are uncomfortable or nervous, we can help relieve your dental anxiety with dental sedation options, including:

  • Nitrous oxide, more commonly referred to as “laughing gas,” which quickly produces a pleasant and calming sensation
  • Oral conscious sedation, which you will take in pill form roughly an hour before your appointment so you can arrive fully relaxed

We also provide various comfort options to help put you at ease, such as:

  • Warm blankets
  • Cozy pillows
  • TVs to distract you while we fix your smile

If there’s anything that you need to feel more comfortable, just let a friendly team member know! We can’t wait to help you regain your strong, beautiful smile.
