Dental Crowns in Allen Park, MI

What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that goes over your natural tooth. Dental crowns can be made from many different materials, such as silver-toned titanium crowns or natural-looking porcelain. These tooth caps protect vulnerable teeth from bacteria and damage.

The Benefits of Dental Crowns

Some of the benefits of dental crowns include:

  • The process is simple and only takes two short appointments to complete.
  • Crowns preserve your natural teeth so they don’t have to be extracted.
  • A crown can improve or restore your tooth’s appearance.
  • Your dental crown will be made custom for you.
  • Dental crowns can last for 5 to 15 years.
  • They’re easy to take care of — simply brush and floss your teeth as usual.

How Do Dental Crowns Work?

The dental crown process usually consists of two appointments. At your first appointment, Dr. Mahjoub will prepare your tooth for the crown. The preparation consists of cleaning the tooth and taking away a small amount of enamel so the crown can fit over it easily. Then, she’ll take an impression of the tooth to create the crown.

Until your permanent dental crown is ready, you’ll wear a temporary crown. The temporary will protect your tooth, but it isn’t as durable as the permanent crown. Dr. Mahjoub will remove the temporary crown and replace it with your permanent one when it’s ready, securely placing it over your tooth.

Who is a Candidate for Dental Crowns?

There are many reasons why Dr. Mahjoub may recommend a dental crown. Some of these reasons are:

  • For a tooth that’s severely cracked or decayed
  • After root canal therapy
  • To improve the appearance of a tooth
  • To finish a dental implant
  • For supporting a dental bridge
  • To protect large fillings requiring a post for stability

Dental crowns from Dr. Mahjoub can look and feel like a natural tooth, so you can forget that you even have a crown. With natural-looking crowns, nobody else will be able to notice them either.
