We can do so by giving you the answers to frequently asked questions about dental crowns in Belpre, Ohio.

What makes someone a good candidate for a dental crown?

Typically, a good dental crown candidate is someone who has a weak, worn-down, unattractive, decayed, or broken tooth that also has a strong and healthy core. The tooth also needs top-notch roots and supporting underlying bone. To find out if you are a good candidate, your dentist will need to take X-rays of the tooth.

What can a dental crown do for me?

A dental crown can help you, your smile, and your oral health. It can take a broken, decayed, worn-down, and unattractive tooth and turn it into a complete, healthy, strong, restored, and beautiful tooth. With the help of a dental crown, you can improve your oral health, enhance your smile, and have the functional mouth you need to eat, talk, and smile with confidence.

Does placing a dental crown hurt?

Dental crown treatment is simple, but it doesn’t mean it’s easy. To make this treatment the most pleasant experience possible, our dental team will do everything we can to help you. In fact, your dentist will numb the mouth before she begins treatment, which will make it so you avoid feeling any pain during your appointment.
