If your needs are simple, consisting mainly of routine examinations and cleanings, we’d love to make the experience feel like a visit to the spa with friends. If you’re in need of more complex treatment, our office is a safe, supportive space that can deliver the results you’re hoping for while ensuring your comfort throughout your time with us. We’re proud to take continuing education courses and utilize the most up-to-date technologies because they allow us to keep you informed and improve your experiences in the chair. We look forward to caring for you and showing you that dentistry is a form of self-care with long-lasting rewards!
Our general dentistry services are geared toward the prevention and early detection of oral health problems. When you know your oral health is in great condition, it’s one less thing to worry over as you go about your busy life. Why not extend that wonderful feeling by spending time with sweet Dak, breathing the filtered air deeply, then sitting back on a comfortable neck pillow with a blanket while we examine your mouth, jaw, and neck (part of screening for oral cancer)? We ensure nothing is out of the ordinary before one of our hygienists gives you a cleaning that will leave your smile feeling and looking fabulous.
If it’s been a while since you visited the dentist, whether it’s due to fears over physical discomfort or concerns about the affordability of dental work you may need, we want you to know Crown Dentistry is a judgment-free zone. We’re here to help you feel positive about your smile no matter what condition it’s in during your first visit. Where you start is not where you have to stay, and we’d be honored to help you take steps toward the fully functioning, strong, beautiful smile you deserve. If you have decay or an infection, we can remove it, restore your affected teeth, and help you strengthen your at-home regimen. If you’re living with missing teeth, we’d love to help you determine the best way to replace them, because it’s important that you do!
Have you ever contemplated what your smile would look like after having a cosmetic dental treatment? If you’ve wondered about it, you’ve likely got something keeping you from smiling with total confidence. In fact, a 2016 survey showed that teeth earned the second highest percentage of votes in a discussion on traits Americans felt most unhappy with. Often people don’t seek the services that would increase their confidence because they’re embarrassed or think they’re going to be too pricey—we understand, but we want you to know they’re within reach and you have nothing to be ashamed of.
Do the words “oral surgery” make you want to stay far away from the dentist’s office? We know many people who’ve felt the same way before getting the care they needed, and after they did, not only were they happy with the results, but they were glad they’d faced their fears; many of them have become members of our dental family that we’re so grateful for. We understand oral surgery doesn’t sound ideal, but it’s not something we’d advise if it weren’t in your best interests, and we’ll do everything we can to make the process stress-free and comfortable—we promise.
We’re used to our comfortable office, compassionate touch, and nurturing amenities calming people in our care, but we know that dental fears are very real for millions of people. Sedation dentistry in the form of nitrous oxide or a prescription sedative can be provided during your visit to take the edge off your concerns. Your treatment will be over before you know it!
Do you experience frequent headaches or migraines, ringing of the ears and earaches, along with discomfort or pain when opening and closing your mouth? These symptoms (and more) could be the result of an overworked and inflamed temporomandibular joint (TMJ). The cause of tension on your TMJ is often jaw clenching or teeth grinding (also known as bruxism), which also wears down your enamel and can create the need for restorative dentistry. There are ways to prevent the consequences of these actions and stop your pain at the source, and we’re happy to provide them!
If chronic loud snoring is keeping you or your partner from sleeping well, finding a solution should be high on your to-do list. You deserve better sleep, and if your snoring is a symptom of sleep apnea, it’s even more important to seek treatment. Sleep apnea is linked to an increased risk of diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. Treating the problem could be as simple as wearing a customized, comfortable oral appliance at night (or whenever you have to get shut-eye).
If you or a loved one are experiencing a dental emergency, it’s important to act quickly. That might seem obvious, but even something like a toothache and minor swelling could indicate the need for treatment. Other emergencies, like a knocked-out tooth or bleeding that won’t stop, can be traumatic, but we’re here to apply our clinical knowledge and compassionate care to get you out of pain and save your smile. Unfortunately, emergency rooms can’t handle dental emergencies, but Dr. Hawkins can be reached after-hours, and our scheduling practices can accommodate time for urgent dental visits.
If you have any questions about our services, or you’re ready to schedule a visit with your Arlington dentist, Dr. Kasey Hawkins of Crown Dentistry, we’d love to hear from you!(817) 587-8803
