Reasons You May Need a Dental Crown Gainesville, GA
Dental Crown

Dental crowns are one of the most time-tested restorations in dentistry. A crown, often called a dental cap, encases all visible surfaces of the tooth above the gum line. Crowns can be customized in shape, color and size to provide a seamless and natural-looking blend within your existing smile. They are made of strong materials that can hold up against everyday dental function. Both kids and adults can benefit from a dental crown in certain situations.

Why are crowns used? A crown can be used in a variety of circumstances, but they are most often recommended when a tooth is too damaged or weak to be left alone. This can involve a situation in which the tooth suffered a severe chip, fracture or break during an accidental injury. However, it may also include cases where severe decay or infection compromised the structural integrity of a tooth. A dental crown can cover up exposed roots of a damaged tooth and help the tooth regain its original shape, appearance and function.

Crowns are typically the restoration of choice after a root canal procedure. Many times, the tooth is just too weak after this endodontic treatment, and a crown can ensure long-lasting strength and protection for the traumatized tooth. Finally, if you have a missing tooth and elect to have a dental implant, a custom crown will be attached to the implant and serve as your prosthetic tooth.

Less commonly, a crown is used for aesthetic purposes only. While a crown can effectively cover up a stained or chipped tooth, it may not be the best choice if the health of the tooth is compromised. A crown requires a dentist to grind away a significant portion of the tooth before placing the tooth cap. A less-invasive procedure can involve a porcelain veneer instead. It is best to let a dentist decide whether a crown or veneer is more appropriate for your specific cosmetic concern.

Our Patient Reviews

Bev M.

Very happy with the staff at Gainesville Dental Group. The doctors are caring and experienced. I never am left in the waiting room. The hygienist always ask thorough questions and report to the doctor before the exam, saving me from having to repeat everything. Highly recommend.

I came to Gainesville Dental Group with a crown that was in bad shape and painful. Dr. Vetter was very knowledgeable about what needed to be done and went to great lengths to ensure the treatment to resolve the problem was in my best interest. He and assistant Sarah Riley were very professional yet personable. They worked together seamlessly in a manner that put me at ease and were very focused on fixing the tooth. Any physical discomfort was minimal and both Dr. Vetter and Sarah were encouraging and positive. A very good experience.

I come to Gainesville Dental Group for my routine cleanings and absolutely love it! It’s very clean and I love how up to date they are with digital X-rays and photos of the teeth. I had to have a filling and they were able to point out on the screen where my cavity was on the X-ray. It’s much easier getting the work done when you have an understanding of what the doctor is doing! Dr. Vetter did my filling and the whole procedure was pain free! I can’t say enough good things about this group!

Dr. Gannon and Hannah were great. They talked me thru my procedure and made sure I was comfortable and pain free. The office was friendly and pleasant. My hubby and son have used them and liked them. I've found a new dentist! Thank You GDG.

Great dental visit! Went in for annual cleaning and x-rays. Donna did an awesome job and pointed out a potential issue which she brought up to the doctor who concurred. It was an excellent visit. Thank you to the "team" @ Gainesville Dental Group.
