3 Common Misconceptions About Dental Crowns
Have you recently been told you need a dental crown and are concerned about the procedure? Do you worry that it will be painful or that the results won’t look natural?
These are a couple of the common misconceptions that people share about dental crowns, so let’s take a moment to separate fact from fiction.
Myth #1: Getting a Crown is an Uncomfortable Procedure
Fact: If you’re not a fan of dental procedures, you may feel that the process of getting a dental crown will be difficult and uncomfortable. But at Rush Creek Dentistry, we can ensure your complete comfort. Not only do we offer sedation dentistry to calm your fears, but our state-of-the-art technology allows us to deliver local anesthesia with no shots and no pain!
Myth #2: Dental Crowns Don’t Look Natural
Fact: You don’t have to worry that your new crown will be apparent to others. Today we use porcelain and ceramic materials with the same translucent appearance as natural dental enamel. The shade of your new restoration will be customized to blend uniformly with your surrounding natural teeth. Once it has been polished and cemented in place, no one will ever know that you have had any work done.
Myth #3: Crowns Won’t Chip or Break
Fact: Porcelain dental crowns are designed to be durable, and in some cases just as strong as natural dental enamel. However, like dental enamel, porcelain is not immune to damage. Habits like teeth grinding or routinely eating hard nuts and crunchy foods can chip or break a crown just as easily as they can break your teeth.
