Dental Crowns

Dental Crowns - Dentist, Cosmetic Dentistry - Southfield Family Dental Center - crown

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped "cap" that is placed over a tooth - covering the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and/or to improve its appearance.

The crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.

Getting a crown is a two office visit process.

  • The first visit is to prepare, examine the tooth and have a temporary crown applied.
  • The second visit is to receive the permanent crown.

A crown can be placed for a number of reasons:

  • Protect a weak tooth (for instance, from decay) from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth
  • Restore an already broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down
  • Cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't a lot of tooth left
  • Hold a dental bridge in place
  • Cover misshapened or severely discolored teeth
  • Cover a dental implant
