Root canal treatment in Greeley, CO does a great job preserving your natural tooth and preventing tooth loss. However, since the procedure removes the diseased nerve tissue from inside your tooth, it causes your tooth to become more brittle. A dental crown strengthens your tooth and protects your root. It also ensures that your tooth can provide all the chewing function you had before your tooth infection.
During root canal treatment, Dr. Bagley seals your tooth with a temporary filling to allow it to heal. Sometimes a permanent filling can restore your tooth; however, in most cases, he recommends a crown to strengthen your tooth after it has healed.
Dr. Bagley completes all aspects of your root canal treatment and your dental crown to ensure that you receive a quality restoration that you can rely on for years to come. It typically takes our trusted local dental lab two to three weeks to complete your crown because Dr. Bagley only works with top dental technicians who meet his high standards for quality.
