3 Reasons You Don’t Want A Crown (And What To Do)

If we tell you that you need a dental crown and you look at us and say that you don’t want one, you may be putting your smile (no, you will definitely be putting your smile) in harm’s way. What begins as a suggestion for a crown with the confidence that we can easily save and protect your tooth can become something else. If you say no the crown, your tooth may break. It may become infected. You may end up needing an extraction! So, the topic begs the question, of course: Why don’t you want a crown if it can save your smile? A little insight may make you feel a lot better and even excited about this restoration.

#1: You’ve Had Metal Crowns In The Past

If you’ve had metal dental crowns in the past and you really did not like them, then you may not want a crown. What you’re possibly overlooking is that there’s more than metal that you have access to these days! The material we use provides you with a crown that looks like your real tooth, that doesn’t cause sensitivity, and that can last many years. Porcelain or zirconia is fully customizable and very different from metal. Ask us for details!

#2: You Don’t Understand Why You Need One

If you don’t entirely understand why you need one, you may feel justified in simply deciding against it. We strongly encourage you to take time to become familiar with what’s wrong with your tooth, what you need, and why a crown is so important today and for your tooth’s future. We will be happy to speak with you at length and show you what’s happening with imaging of your tooth.

#3: It’s Expensive

If you want a dental crown but you are worried about your budget, remember to speak with us about our financing that we offer through CareCredit, which may be the solution you need.
