It is simple to comprehend why you could be feeling a bit anxious about seeing your dentist. In fact, it is one of the most common fears. So don’t feel bad or embarrassed about this fear.
Grove City Dental has had extensive experience in working with patients who have a strong fear of going to the dentist and our staff as well as our use of sedation dentistry is perfect to help you overcome this understandable fear. It is the proverbial ‘stuck between a rock and a hard spot’ when you have a fear of going to the dentist and you need some assistance with your teeth such as getting dental crowns. It may be difficult because in the past getting a crown required going back and forth to the dentist over an extended period of time and the multiple visits as well as just the knowledge and awareness of the need to go to the dentist multiple times creates an even stronger fear so much so that in some cases people will opt to leave in the embarrassment of missing or chipped teeth as well as pain, but same day dentistry makes a large portion of these type of cases a thing of the past. Same day dentistry means that some dental crowns can be custom created with precision lead edge equipment right in the Grove City Dental offics so that you can reduce the number of visits to have a dental crown created and applied down to in most cases just 1 dental visit. That saves you time, emotional energy, and often saves you money and grief.
Dental crowns are employed for many different reasons including the preservation of as much of the original tooth structure as possible so it does not have to be removed. Dental crowns may also be used in conjuction with some other treatments. In case your tooth is damaged, or it has dropped its protective enamel which may cause it to deteriorate, then you should reinforce the tooth. Perhaps this is a tooth which has had difficulties previously. It can be held by a large filling all in there together but a few of those can be delicate if they’re large, and they also frequently aren’t as powerful as the tooth and may weaken the complete construction, while fillings aid to prevent cavities from becoming larger. There are cases when the tooth could seem very gray and dark, and if the darkened or gray ‘dead’ tooth is in the front then a dental crown process can help conceal the fact your tooth is dead underneath, with a good impact on your overall smile in terms of it’s cosmetic appearance.
