Do you have a tooth that needs to be restored? Does one of your teeth look bad, or is unable to function as well as it should? There are many reasons why dentists provide patients with dental crowns. When you get a dental crown at our Richmond KY dental office you can be sure that it is made of the finest material, using the most advanced techniques; this is important because it means the dental crown will be very strong and provide the most natural-looking results.
Our dental office practice is Fred Ballou. Dr. Fred L. Ballou is our dentist who has exceptional training and credentials. He has completed advanced training in cosmetic and restorative dentistry and has also completed courses in dental implant placement. These studies were completed at the world-renowned L.D. Pankey Institute for Advanced Dental Education and the Dawson Center for the Advancement of Dentistry. When you come to our dental practice, you can be assured that you are receiving the very highest level of care possible. If you need to have teeth restored using dental crowns, Dr. Ballou will provide you with crowns that look great and function equally well. Dental crowns are porcelain covers for teeth. They are very strong and are made to cover the teeth on all four sides. Crowns are also called dental “caps” by some people, but crowns and caps are the exact same thing. At our Richmond KY dental office patients get dental crowns for many different reasons.`
Some patients get dental crowns for purely cosmetic reasons. If you have a tooth that looks bad but functions well, it can have its look improved by being covered by a ceramic crown. Sometimes a tooth is discolored and cannot be fixed with dental bleaching or whitening. A crown is effective in this situation to make the tooth look more attractive. If a patient is getting dental implants, dental crowns will be permanently attached to the implants and serve as the upper “tooth” portion. If a patient has just undergone root canal treatment at our Richmond KY dental office, they may well need a crown to cover and strengthen the remaining tooth. Dental crowns can also be used to restore teeth that have too many fillings and may be in danger of cracking. Dental crowns are made to color match the adjacent teeth so no one will be able to know that you have one in your mouth. The work of our dentist is meticulous; you will be thrilled with the look and feel of your new dental crown. If you would like to see our dentist, contact us for an appointment.
