Dental Crown Dentists in Shelby Township, MI

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are placed over teeth to restore their shape, size, strength, or appearance. A crown not only strengthens a tooth but can also dramatically improve a tooth’s appearance, shape, and alignment. When the crown adheres into place, it will fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.

Dental crowns may be used to:

  • Replace a large filling when only minimal tooth structure remains
  • Protect a weak tooth from fracturing
  • Restore a fractured tooth
  • Attach a dental bridge
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Cover a discolored or poorly shaped tooth
  • Cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment
