Root Canals and Restorations in One Visit

A tooth treated with a root canal procedure often needs reinforcement with a dental crown to keep the tooth strong and healthy long-term. At our Bowling Green, KY practice, we can eliminate your tooth infection and attach a custom dental crown in a single appointment, keeping your treatment as streamlined and convenient as possible. During your procedure, infected pulp and tissues are removed from the interior of the tooth and these canals are cleaned and sealed to prevent bacteria from entering. Then, using our in-house milling machine, we fabricate a custom dental crown while you wait comfortably in our calming treatment suite. Once the crown is milled, we finalize the fit, then attach this crown to your tooth to restore it’s shape, color, and strength. In just a few hours, you can alleviate your chronic tooth pain and restore a virtually brand new, pain-free tooth!
