The presence of an unattractive tooth can overshadow your smile’s natural beauty and affect your self-esteem and self-confidence, causing you to feel embarrassment about your smile. If you struggle with an unattractive tooth, we invite you to consider receiving a dental crown, which can easily improve your smile.

We are happy to provide a breakdown of the process of placing a dental crown so that you have a good idea of what to expect. First, we will numb the area around your tooth for your enhanced comfort, and then prepare the tooth to accommodate the dental crown.

Following the preparation of the tooth, we will take an impression of that tooth and any surrounding teeth to assist the professional dental lab in creating a custom-made dental crown for your smile. While the crown is being created, you can receive a temporary crown to protect the treated tooth.

Once we have your new crown, we can schedule your second visit to Hawkins Family Dentistry, where we will remove the temporary crown and evaluate the size, fit, and appearance of the new dental crown before we attach it to your smile with dental-grade cement.

To learn if you would benefit from a high-quality dental crown in Belpre, Ohio, contact Hawkins Family Dentistry at 740-423-8416 today and arrange a time to speak with our dentist, Dr. Lori Hawkins.
