You may lead an active lifestyle that puts you in a variety of exciting situations, but what happens when you sustain damage to your teeth? Human beings have a limited number of teeth, and severe enough damage can make it difficult to eat food or even speak properly. Luckily, the technology available at your dentist in Spokane, WA, can restore your teeth. With broken or severely decayed teeth, dental crowns may be the right way to go.

Common Reasons for Dental Crown Treatment

Dr. Richard D. Weigand offers a number of cosmetic dentistry procedures, but crowns are a fairly popular and common one to encounter. There are a few reasons why we may recommend dental crown treatment:

  • Cosmetic: If you are unhappy with the way your teeth look, a custom dental crown can help to restore the appearance of a tooth. Each crown is customized to match the shape and color of your teeth, so it looks and functions much like a real tooth.
  • Protection: If your tooth suffered traumatic damage or has broken due to decay, then a crown can help protect what is left from further damage or deterioration.

Straightforward Treatment

Dental crown placement is a fairly straightforward procedure that may take two or more visits. During the first visit, Dr. Weigand prepares the tooth by shaping it for crown placement. Patients may receive a temporary crown while waiting for the next visit. The permanent crown is made between appointments and placed at the second appointment. There may be another follow-up appointment to ensure the crown is staying in place.
