Dental Crowns in Birmingham, MI
Restore Damaged Teeth
Dental crowns are small caps that can be placed over the surface of severely damaged or decayed teeth to restore their strength and appearance. We custom-craft our crowns from durable, tooth-colored porcelain to ensure a natural appearance.
Until recent years, gold and metal crowns were the standards. Though these are still effective options, many patients don’t care for their noticeable appearance. Porcelain crowns are nearly impossible to distinguish from your surrounding teeth, so you can smile with confidence.
Do I Need a Dental Crown?
Our dentists can use dental crowns to treat a variety of issues with your teeth. Some of the most common include:
- Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- Severely decayed teeth
- Weakened or worn-down teeth
- Teeth with over-sized fillings
- Missing teeth (in combination with dental implants)
Frequently Asked Questions
Typically, we can place your dental crown in just two appointments. During the first visit, your dentist will take detailed impressions of your teeth and send them to a laboratory, where your crown will be customized to match your teeth. In about two weeks, the crown will be ready and you can return to our office so we can bond it to your tooth.
Yes! Many patients ask us about upgrading old crowns to porcelain for a more natural appearance. In most cases, this can be done without any issues. If you’re interested in switching out your gold or metal crown for porcelain, give us a call and schedule a consultation.
If your crown gets damaged, it will most likely need to be replaced. Don’t attempt to fix the crown yourself, as this can result in further damage and set your treatment back. Just call our office right away and explain the issue. A member of our team will provide the care you need as soon as possible.
