It makes sense to choose a dentist that offers full dental services, so you don’t have to go to a general dentist for a tooth crown and a cosmetic dentist for porcelain veneers or other procedures used to improve the appearance of your teeth. Walding and Associates is the dental practice that provides most any dental service you and your family needs including fillings, extractions, TMJ treatment, braces, implants, dentures and even facial esthetic treatments such as Botox and Juvederm.
A crown is often used by a cosmetic dentist to improve the color or shape of a tooth for cosmetic purposes. Non cosmetic indications for a tooth crown include the following and more:
The dentists at Walding and Associates will take the time to explain why they are recommending a crown in your situation and what other options may be available. The procedure for a dental crown by a general or cosmetic dentist usually takes two trips to our dental office. The first trip typically includes an exam, x-rays, tooth reshaping and a tooth impression. A temporary tooth crown will usually be cemented in to protect the tooth while a dental lab manufactures the permanent crown. During the second appointment, we remove the temporary crown and insert the permanent crown. An anesthetic to numb the tooth is usually used during both visits, so you can take comfort knowing that you will not be in pain during the procedure.
We’re dedicated to making dental visits for a tooth crown and other treatments as pleasant and comfortable as possible for those in Auburndale, Crystal Lake, Lake Wales, Lakeland Highlands, Plant City and the surrounding cities. Contact us today to schedule a dental exam at Walding and Associates.
