You may know that there are a number of things you should do if you’re interested in treating a heavily damaged or decayed tooth. For instance, you may know that a crown is one important choice you should consider. You see, crowns are designed to look, feel, and function like your natural teeth.
Naturally, you’ll have to care for your crown once you’ve had it placed. Once your crown is placed, your smile will look and feel natural again. Crowns can also be used to prevent weakened teeth from cracking. However, our team may need time to prepare your new crown. In the meantime, we may offer you a temporary crown.
There are actually a number of benefits to a temporary crown. These temporary crowns are bound to your tooth with a temporary adhesive. This adhesive will be removed once your permanent crown is ready. Temporary crowns will be made of plastic. Furthermore, these temporary crowns will hold your teeth in place, protect the injured tooth, and restore the function and appearance of your smile.
Our dentist, Dr. Don Schiess, and the rest of our team will be happy to inspect your pearly whites to see if you should consider getting a dental crown in Medford, Oregon. If you’d like to learn more, we invite you to contact Open Door Family Dentistry by calling us at 541-773-4073. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
