Tooth Crowns in Detroit

Do you have a chipped or cracked tooth? Our dentist will explain how a tooth crown can save the tooth and improve its appearance.

Are Crowns the Same as Caps?

Yes, a person getting a cap is undergoing a dental crown procedure. A crown completely encircles a tooth, so while people call crowns dental caps, the covering extends down to the gumline. This provides a uniform appearance and hides any discoloration. Since the cap extends to the gumline, it will become important for you to brush down to your gums.

Are Crowns Something a Family Dentist Can Help Me With?

Yes, crowns for teeth buttress oversize fillings, hold bridges and save cracked teeth, which are all situations that general dentists deal with on a regular basis. You can get a tooth crown in Detroit, right here at our practice. Call us today to schedule a consultation.

Which Types of Crowns Are Recommended?

Most patients will choose tooth-colored materials for a front tooth crown, however a gold crown is an option. Our dentist will help you make the selection.

Porcelain Crowns

Actually made from porcelain fused to metal, a porcelain crown is strong, with an excellent combination of aesthetics and the ability to withstand wear.

Ceramic Crowns

A ceramic crown offers the best natural tooth coloring, useful for when aesthetics are a primary concern. The porcelain-based filling adds strength to the crown, although ceramic is more brittle than other materials.

Gold Crowns

Metal crowns are usually made of gold. While it is possible to chip ceramic crowns, a gold crown tooth never chips. Gold is the strongest material for crowns, although it is also the most noticeable. Gold is typically used as a crown for molars, as it can withstand the force of heavy chewing and is less visible in the back of the mouth.

What Does a Crown Typically Cost?

Every patient is unique. Other treatments, such as root canal work, performed in conjunction with obtaining a crown will add to the final dental crown cost. Additionally, the material that you select for your crown will affect the cost. Schedule a consultation today to find out the best material that fits into your budget.

How Are Crowns Put on Teeth?

On your first visit, you will have a consultation with our dentist to discuss the process and which of the possible crown materials are suitable for your tooth. In order to fit a crown, the dentist must reduce the tooth to a stump, so that it can hold the crown. Then the dentist creates an impression to give the dental lab a model to work from, so that they can create a tooth cap that looks like one of your natural teeth.

Then a temporary metal or plastic cap protects the remainder of the tooth until your permanent crown comes in. The dentist cements the permanent crown in place after determining that the fit and feel is correct.

Do Crowns Need Special Care?

A tooth crown should last for approximately seven years, but usually last much longer when proper brushing, flossing and professional cleanings are a part of your normal oral hygiene routine. Our dentist will examine your crown during your periodic checkups.
