Dental crowns are a common type of dental restoration that can help you eat and smile normally after a root canal or dental implant procedure. A crown is made to look natural and blend in with the rest of your teeth for a seamless appearance. We offer same-day dental crowns for the convenience of our patients.
What Are Dental Crowns?
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that goes over a damaged tooth or dental implant. They’re commonly used after a root canal procedure to protect the area and restore the look of your natural tooth.
You might also need to have a dental crown placed if:
- You have a cavity that’s too large for a filling
- Your tooth has been damaged beyond repair
- You want to conceal a misshapen tooth
- You need one to cap a dental implant
You should care for your dental crown the same way you would a natural tooth. With proper treatment, you can expect your crowns to last for up to 15 years.
Same-Day Dental Crowns
At the office of Jeffrey T. Baker DDS, we’re proud to offer same-day dental crowns thanks to our E4D CAD-CAM Restoration System. Usually when you get a crown, the restoration must be made in an off-site lab. That means you end up leaving the dentist with a temporary crown, not to mention the hassle of making a second appointment to get your permanent crown.
At our office, all of our crowns are made on-site so you never have to leave your appointment with a temporary restoration. Our crowns can be completed in just one appointment!
Dental crowns are an effective way to restore the appearance of your smile. To make an appointment with our restorative dentists in Shelby Township, MI, call Jeffrey T. Baker DDS at (586) 992-9222 today.
