A crown is usually recommended when a tooth is at risk for fracturing following trauma or root infection. However, we can use dental crowns in a variety of treatments.
A dental crown is a cover that goes over a prepared tooth to the gum line. It is colored and shaped to match your surrounding teeth. In most cases, this is a tooth that already has fracture lines from heavy use, grinding, clenching, or a tooth that has a large filling. The prevents loss and further damage.
A dental crown can also conceal an unsightly tooth with stains or shape abnormalities in cosmetic dentistry.
In dental implant therapy, a dental crown tops your implant post and becomes your replacement tooth.
Dental crowns also secure a dental bridge to healthy adjacent teeth.
In our Lansing dental office, we rely on quality dental crowns to contribute to your smile health and aesthetics.
