Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are a common type of restoration that can help you eat and smile normally after your tooth has been damaged, worn down, undergone a root canal, or you’ve been in for the dental implant procedure. A crown is made to look natural and blend in with the rest of your teeth for a seamless appearance. Inside our office, our Shelby Township, MI, dentists offer same-day dental crowns for the convenience of our patients.

Here’s what you need to know.

What Are Dental Crowns?

As mentioned above, a dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” or covering that goes over a damaged tooth or on top of a dental implant. They’re also commonly used after a root canal procedure to protect the vulnerable area and improve the functionality of your natural tooth. All in all, crowns restore a tooth’s shape, size, strength, and overall appearance.

You might also need to have a dental crown placed if:

  • You have a cavity that’s too large for a tooth-colored filling
  • Your tooth has been damaged beyond repair
  • You want to conceal a misshapen tooth
  • You need one to cap a dental implant or complete a dental bridge

You should care for your dental crown the same way you would a natural tooth. That means brushing at least twice a day and flossing daily, and receiving a professional teeth cleaning every 6 months. By giving it the attention it needs, you can expect your crown(s) to last for up to 15 years.

Same-Day Dental Crowns

At our Shelby Township, MI, dental office, 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 results in you having to leave the dentist with a temporary crown for a week or so, not to mention the hassle of making a second appointment to get your permanent crown.

That doesn’t happen here. At our office, all of our crowns are made onsite so you never have to leave your appointment with a temporary restoration. Our crowns can be completed in just one appointment!
