Crowns are one of many services we provide in Smithville, MO. Dr. Matthew Garrison provides dental crowns to our patients who need to protect their teeth, whether they are weakened from decay or a previous root canal.
Crowns are custom made to fit over the tooth and are bonded to fit securely. While they are not a permanent solution, they can last 10-15 years with good care and maintenance. Crowns are brushed and flossed daily, just like natural teeth, and patients can eat normally with them.
Here at Garrison Family Dentistry in Smithfield, MO, we provide crowns for a variety of purposes. Some patients have weakened teeth that are susceptible to breaking because of tooth decay or a root canal. They need a crown to protect the tooth and keep it. Other patients have staining or do not like the appearance of a particular tooth, and choose to get a porcelain crown to cover it. Whatever the reason, we are happy to provide a crown in 2-3 short dental visits. Give us a call if you have any questions about dental crowns and how they are performed. When you call, ask us about our complimentary X-rays with a new patient exam.
