Why Would You Need a Root Canal?

The inside of your tooth contains a soft material known as pulp, which is home to blood vessels and nerves. When this pulp becomes inflamed or infected—usually due to severe tooth decay, a deep filling, or a crack or chip in the tooth—it can cause substantial pain and, if left untreated, potentially lead to more serious health issues. In these situations, a root canal procedure is often the best course of action to alleviate pain and save your tooth from extraction.

Some common reasons for needing a dental crown include:

  • Restoration of a fractured or worn down tooth
  • Reinforcement of a tooth with a large filling
  • Enhancement of aesthetic appearance due to discoloration or malformation
  • Completion of a dental implant or a root canal treatment

By covering the affected tooth, a dental crown restores its size, shape, strength, and appearance, enhancing both your oral function and aesthetics.

Who is a Good Candidate for a Root Canal?

At Dental Arts, we undertake a comprehensive dental examination to determine the most appropriate treatment for you. Generally, candidates for a root canal experience certain symptoms. These include severe tooth pain when chewing or applying pressure, prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold, discoloration of the tooth, and swelling or tenderness in the nearby gums. However, in some cases, there may be no symptoms at all. Regular dental checkups at Dental Arts can help identify these cases early, preventing pain and further damage.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please contact us immediately. A timely root canal could save your tooth and protect your overall oral health.

The Process of Getting Porcelain Veneers at Dental Arts

At Dental Arts, the porcelain veneers process involves three steps:

Initial consultation

Our expert dentists evaluate your dental health and aesthetic goals, then decide if porcelain veneers are the right choice for you.

Preparation stage

A small amount of enamel is gently removed from the surface of your teeth to make room for the veneer. We then take an impression of your teeth, which is sent to a dental lab where your custom veneers are created – a process that takes a few weeks.

Bonding stage

The veneers are temporarily placed on your teeth to check the fit and color, ensuring a perfect fit. After making any necessary adjustments, the veneers are permanently bonded to your teeth. With proper care, your porcelain veneers can last for many years, enhancing your smile, confidence, and overall quality of life.
