How Do You Know if You Need a Dental Crown?
Dr. Luffey can provide a wide range of dental restorations to treat your teeth, including porcelain crowns, veneers and dental implants. Porcelain crowns are a popular restorative dental treatment that have cosmetic benefits. You may need a crown due to:
- Extensive tooth decay
- Root canal therapy
- Broken or cracked teeth
- Broken fillings that weaken the tooth
- Misaligned or misshapen tooth
The best way to find out if you are a candidate for porcelain dental crowns is to schedule a dental checkup with Dr. Luffey. During your checkup, Dr. Luffey will examine the health of your teeth and recommend a dental restoration to treat any problems. Request an appointment online or call us at (505) 294-4700.

Replacing Old Metal Crowns in Albuquerque
Many people are allergic to traditional metal dental crowns, causing them to experience swollen, red and receding gums. If that describes your condition, Dr. Luffey may recommend the removal of your old metal crowns and replacing them with new CEREC® porcelain crowns. Porcelain crowns are not only customized to match the color of your teeth, they also allow gums affected by metal crowns to recover completely.
Sedation Dentistry—How to Get Over Dentist Anxiety
If dental anxiety has prevented you from getting the dental treatment that you need, Dr. Luffey provides sedation dentistry. The fear of going to the dentist is the biggest reason patients request conscious sedation, but patients also request sedation due to jaw soreness, disability and a sensitive gag reflex. Sedation medication will relax you throughout your dental treatment, preventing you from feeling any fear once sedation medication is administered. With sedation dentistry, there is no reason to put off having the quality dental care that you deserve.
