What Could Happen 

Few people get through life without any dental problems. It is unfortunate but understandable.

A vast majority of people develop tooth decay, which can easily lead to toothaches and other troubles.

Millions of people lose teeth every year. The reasons vary from accidents and injuries to untreated infections and gum disease. 

Dental issues are not just a concern for your oral health, either. They can impact your emotional and overall health.

We have witnessed the way smile affect patients mental well-being, both for good and bad. Patients often feel the need to hide a decayed or broken tooth. People who are missing teeth frequently use a hand, a tissue, or something else to cover their mouths when they speak.

You can spend a lot of mental energy worrying about your smile — and how other people will perceive you — when you feel self-conscious about your smile.

From a physical health standing, dental problems can impact you in multiple ways. The bacteria that cause oral infections can get into your bloodstream and cause problems in other parts of your body (including your heart).

Toothaches and tooth sensitivity can impact your ability to bite and chew your food. This can make digestion difficult or cause you to avoid certain foods entirely. As a result, you may not be getting the nutrients your body needs.

Our point is not to make you feel bad if you have a dental issue, but it also doesn’t mean you should just accept the problem. With modern dental care, your smile can be as good as new with the right solution.

Repair More Than Your Smile

Dental crowns are an effective option to fix:

  • Broken teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Decayed teeth
  • Infected teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Missing teeth (when paired with a dental implant)
  • Worn-down teeth

Modern crowns are made with durable ceramics that look natural and allow you to bite and chew well. By getting crowns, you can restore your smile, your ability to eat what you like, and your self-confidence. 

The process is simple, too. We prepare the tooth or place an implant. Then, we affix your crown when it is ready for you.

Know that we offer dental sedation if you have any concerns about this process. With sedation, you feel relaxed and remain pain-free during your procedure.
