Does It Hurt To Get A Dental Crown?
No. The process of getting a dental crown at 1385 Dental Studio doesn’t hurt at all. You won’t feel any pain or discomfort, and the process is quite simple to understand.
To begin the treatment, Dr. Mustafa will numb your mouth and clean the treatment area. Then, she will clean away damaged tooth material and make an opening in your tooth using a dental drill.
After this, she will use a variety of tools to remove damaged tooth material from the tooth’s interior, eliminating bacteria and the source of the infection. Once this is done, she will flush the tooth and disinfect it.
Then, the tooth will be filled with an inert, rubber-like material. This replaces the missing pulp and strengthens the tooth. You’ll get a filling or temporary crown to restore your tooth. You’ll usually need to come back to 1385 Dental Studio to get a permanent crown in a few weeks. That’s it!
How Long Will My Crown Last?
Dental crowns usually last between 10-20 years, but can last even longer with proper dental care. To ensure your crown lasts as long as possible, we recommend that you maintain a good oral hygiene routine and a healthy diet to fight back against tooth decay. You should also come to 1385 Dental Studio in Aubrey every six months for a consultation with Dr. Hala Mustafa.
