A dental crown is simply a tooth-shaped cap that goes over the top of whichever tooth is causing an issue. There are a number of reasons that you may find yourself in need of a dental crown. They are mainly used to restore a tooth that is broken, decayed, misshapen, or discolored. They can also be used as part of a dental bridge that covers up a gap from a missing tooth.
Receiving dental crowns from one of our Sterling Heights cosmetic dentists requires two separate visits. During the first visit, the tooth will be examined and your dentist will take an impression. This impression will then be sent to a dental lab where it will be used to make your permanent dental crown. You may also receive a temporary crown to protect your tooth until the permanent one is ready. At your second visit, the newly made crown will be placed on the tooth that is causing you an issue and your temporary crown will be removed. Your dentist will then cement your crown into place with a special adhesive.
Your tooth may feel a little different after the crown is first applied, but before long it will feel just like a natural tooth. It will also look completely natural and comes with the added benefit of improved comfort when chewing and eating. The dental crown will protect your tooth from any further issues for a long time to come.
If you have a tooth that is broken, discolored, or causing you pain, and want a dental crown from Sterling Heights, call us at (586) 247-0010 to schedule an appointment.
