Concerned About Your Crown?

Dental Crowns Roswell GA

Dental crowns are highly versatile. They can be used to strengthen a weak tooth, restore a damaged or decayed tooth or help support a dental bridge. Crowns can also be used cosmetically for a tooth that just doesn’t fit in with the rest of your smile. While modern dental crowns are made with top grade materials, your crown can still suffer complications. Whether your crown concerns are due to comfort or aesthetics, it is important to relay any issues to your dentist as soon as possible.

Here are some common crown problems you may encounter:

Sensitivity
While it is normal to experience some slight sensitivity immediately after the crown is placed, if you continue to experience an intolerance to hot or cold temperatures, you may need to be examined. Typically, patients feel pain or sensitivity at the gum line or below the crown. This can be due to decay in the underlying tooth. Instead of just treating the symptom, let a dentist evaluate your sensitivity first.

Bite is Uneven
If your bite doesn’t feel comfortable, your crown may need to be adjusted. This can occur immediately after it is placed or several years down the road as your gums, jaw or surrounding teeth change. In most cases, this is an easy fix and may involve your dentist buffering the crown until it creates a better bite.

A Crack Widens
A crown is often the best solution for a severely cracked tooth. However, there is always a chance that the crack will worsen and the crown will no longer be able to hold the failing tooth. If this occurs, see your dentist sooner rather than later. You may need a root canal and a crown replacement to save your tooth.

Loss of Crown
There are times when your crown can become loose or fall out completely. This can be especially disruptive if the crown is in the front of your smile. While aesthetics is a concern, the health of your tooth is also at risk if a crown falls out. Make sure to save the crown if you have it and your dentist can likely cement it back in place.

Black Lines
If you notice a black outline at the bottom of your crown where it meets the gum line, go ahead and make an appointment. This is more common in patients who have older crowns or crowns that were not properly crafted. Black lines are an indication that the gums are separating from the base of the crown, which leaves the underlying tooth more exposed. A crown replacement may be necessary.

If you have a problem with your dental crown, call Dr. Mitzi Morris. We can handle all types of crown concerns, giving you an affordable and long-lasting solution to your smile.

  • Dr. Morris is an excellent dentist. Her ability to relate to her patients makes her a stand-out amongst those in her profession. She practices dentistry with superior technique and care. Her staff is friendly, helpful, and accommodating. I feel she hires only the best! One special mention: I suffer from panic attacks at times- along with claustrophobia. Dr. Morris is the first dentist I have ever had who helped calm my fears. Thus, my experience exceeded expectations! Great service!

  • Definitely would recommend Dr. Morris to anyone. She has been my dentist for over 8 years! Dr. Morris is extremely personable and is serious about the completing the best care possible. Great established dental team! Very accommodating to your schedule.

  • Great and very educational experience. Compared to my last two dentists this experience blows them both out of the water. The staff is very friendly, and very helpful. I had to go in for a total of four visits a few weeks apart from each other. They made me feel very comfortable the entire time and kept making sure I was pleased. Getting a deep cleaning went very smoothly. It was also brought to my attention that the way I was flossing was incorrect. And have since changed methods. I worked specifically with Dr. Morris. She was very nice, and took the time to explain things. Which is a huge plus for me. Dr. Morris and the staff members worked effortlessly together. I was comfortable enough to sit back and relax, strangely enough, while having cavities drilled and fillings put in. Billing and scheduling appointments, as well as follow up for confirmation of upcoming appointments was very easy. I will say my favorite part of the experience was how friendly of an environment the staff has created. That alone is deserving of a 5 star review, and the rest is honestly icing on the cake. I highly recommend this practice on all fronts and will continue using them!

  • I transferred from a long-term and very good relationship with my former dentist because of a move, and I was a little apprehensive about a new dentist. Dr. Morris has been great. She is friendly, patient-concerned and the office is new, comfortable and clean. Everyone seems to enjoy working there. I feel like I'm in good hands!

  • Dr. Morris and her staff are very professional. Additionally, she as well as her staff have an excellent "bedside manner." The office is new and well equipped. If one has an appointment and an earlier one opens up, Dr. Morris offers it to her patients as she did with my last appointment.

  • I have never met a staff so nice and charming. This staff will make you feel comfortable and relaxed in Dr. Morris's Spa like office and everyone is professional and approachable too. Andrea R. explained the process of my appointment and procedures and is definitely a highly-educated and thorough dental hygenist -- SHE IS A ROCKSTAR. I'm so glad that Dr. Morris and her dental team have been my "go-to" for the last 5 years, and I wont be going anywhere else! Overall - A++ Dr. Morris...highly recommended to my family and friends!!!

  • I've been a patient of Dr. Mitzi Morris for many years, and recommend her without reservation. The office is modern. clean and spacious. The staff has always been welcoming and very helpful. And the women who work for her as dental technicians are fantastic; they do a professional and effective deep cleaning, but with a careful, gentle touch. It is clear to me that Dr. Morris reads her professional journals and upgrades her practice to stay very current with the latest best practices in dentistry. (I have had some dentists who stopped updating their practices after leaving dental school!) With Dr. Morris you can count on receiving the very latest dental technology. Her prices are very fair, and I have never been surprised by an unexpected cost or had problems with insurance not covering services rendered.

    Bruce C
  • I have never experienced an office so down to earth, so outgoing and so willing to satisfy. If you've grown to dread the dentist then lay down your sword and give this office a shot.
