Can you put a crown on a decayed tooth?

If you have a severely decayed or infected tooth, we can often restore it with a dental crown. However, we first treat the tooth to clear the decay or infection and prepare it for crowning.

Small cavities that do not pose a risk to your tooth's structure are typically treated with tooth-colored fillings.

In severe cases, we must extract if the cavity has collapsed the tooth below the gumline. But your dentist will always talk to you about tooth replacement.

About Dental Crowns in Smyrna, GA

Dental crowns are tooth covers custom designed to fit over your tooth. They are indistinguishable from your untreated teeth. But they protect the tooth beneath and conceal flaws like discoloration and chips.

We use only trusted labs to fabricate your dental crown, and they use impressions of your tooth to create the restoration.

To care for your dental crown, brush, floss, and visit the dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings. It's also best not to bite into sticky taffy or similar foods with your capped tooth.
