What have you heard about a dental crown? Do you ever think about why this treatment option could help your oral health? While crowns are designed to match the color of your natural smile, they offer a number of other benefits. However, what do you know about how a crown is placed?

You see, a crown can be an extremely useful treatment option for you if you have a weakened tooth. In other words, you may need a dental crown if your tooth has suffered from an injury, or is cracked, or decayed. However, did you know that you’ll usually have to wait before you get your permanent crown? Still, our team will place a temporary crown to help you keep your teeth healthy and strong.

These temporary crowns are very useful because they help to provide you with the same protection that a permanent crown does. However even though these temporary crows might be made of plastic or of metal, they can still protect your damaged tooth. A temporary crown is attached to your tooth with a temporary adhesive that can be easily removed.

Fischer & Charles C. Fischer, and our team will be happy to answer any of your questions or concerns and help you decide how to best keep your teeth clean, healthy, and strong.
