A dental crown is a type of dental restoration used to repair moderately to severely damaged teeth. Dental crowns are caps that entirely encase a tooth up to the gumline to restore tooth function, size, and shape. Often made of porcelain that can be matched to the color of your teeth, dental crowns provide a natural-looking, pleasing aesthetic. Dr. Sylvan Stern, our practiced dentist, may suggest a dental crown in Southfield, Michigan to:
- Prevent a weakened tooth from breaking apart
- Support a large filling
- Restore tooth size and shape when little of the original tooth structure remains
- Anchor a dental bridge
- Restore a dental implant
- Enhance the natural beauty of your smile
At our dental office, we have an on-site dental lab that allows us to produce our own dental crowns and ensure your dental restoration fits perfectly and is of the highest quality. To place a dental crown, all tooth decay is removed and the tooth is gently buffed and shaped in preparation to receive the crown. The tooth is also thoroughly cleaned. Once Dr. Sylvan Stern makes any final adjustments, the dental crown is cemented into place.
