Dental Crowns Restore Form, Function, and Appearance

Living with teeth affected by decay, cracks, and other damage can be detrimental to your oral health and your self-confidence. Fortunately, Drs. Bruce and Mark Luria and Dr. Rena Allswang, can place a dental crown in Dearborn, MI, to restore the health, function, and appearance of a damaged tooth.

Crowns may cover and support large fillings, or serve as cosmetic modifications. Our skilled doctors have many years of experience, and they can help create the smile that you deserve. 

How Dental Crowns Repair Your Smile 

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped restorations that are placed over a damaged tooth to prevent further deterioration. Crowns may be used in conjunction with a dental implant to replace a lost tooth, prevent dental misalignment, and restore balance to your bite. Crowns can also be used to improve the appearance of discolored or disproportionately shaped teeth. 

A dental crown will not only provide functional benefits, it will also improve the aesthetics of your smile, increasing your self-­confidence.  

Placing Your Dental Crown 

The process of receiving a dental crown begins with your consultation with Dr. Luria or Dr. Allswang. At this time, the dentists will explain the procedure in detail and answer any questions you may have. Then, the tooth being treated will be shaped in order to create room to accommodate your crown. Next, the doctor will take an impression of the tooth before placing a temporary restoration.

Dearborn Family Dentistry provides high­-quality crowns that are fabricated by a local ceramist. It will take two to three weeks to prepare your custom crown. You may visit the crown fabrication lab in order to choose a shade that most closely resembles your natural tooth color. 

Your dental crown will be custom-made by an expert ceramist to match the shape and color of your own teeth.

Candidacy and Benefits 

Your dentist may recommend a crown if you have teeth that are decayed or damaged and require more support than a filling can provide. He may also recommend a crown if you wish to replace a missing tooth in conjunction with a dental implant, or wish to conceal cosmetic imperfections such as severe discoloration that does not respond to teeth whitening, or small or misshapen teeth. In some instances, crowns may be recommended as part of a smile makeover to enhance aesthetic symmetry. A crown can restore balance to your bite if you have worn or misaligned teeth due to bruxism (teeth grinding) or other issues. A crown can also fortify a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy.

A dental crown will not only provide functional benefits, it will also improve the aesthetics of your smile, increasing your self-­confidence.
