Orange City & Deltona, FL
Do you have a tooth that has sustained major damage, either from an injury or tooth decay? If so, you may be able to save your tooth by having an expertly trained dentist like Terry Soule, DDS, install a crown.
Used to replace the entire exterior of a tooth, a crown prevents tooth loss while safeguarding the crucial interior structure of a tooth. A dental crown also adds stability and durability to a damaged or broken tooth.
Let’s learn more about how your Orange City dentist Dr. Terry Soule uses crowns.
Terry Soule, DDS, offers two varieties of crowns:
Why should I consider a crown?
At Terry Soule, DDS, we believe in preventing tooth loss whenever possible, and a dental crown can preserve your tooth, preventing the need for an extraction. A crown replaces the damaged exterior and protects the sensitive interior structure of a tooth, which if it becomes damaged, could lead to an infection or significant tooth pain.
In many cases, a crown not only protects the tooth but improves the form and function as well. This is especially true in treatment scenarios where the affected tooth is weak, misshapen, short, or brittle.
What to expect from a crown installation at Terry Soule, DDS
Your Deltona dentist can use a crown in any of these situations:
Crowns also are installed at the end of a root canal procedure, or as the final step in the installation of a dental implant.
Any crown installation takes place over two separately scheduled appointments. At the first appointment, after you receive a local anesthetic, Dr. Soule removes any damaged area of the tooth, cleans it thoroughly and takes impressions that will be used as a guide when constructing your crown. A temporary restoration is placed on the tooth. Then, at the next appointment, your permanent crown will be installed.
