Dental Crowns in Birmingham, MI

What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown, also known as a tooth cap, is placed over the entire tooth surface to restore its natural shape and size. They’re used to effectively protect and strengthen a tooth that can’t be restored with fillings or other restorative options.

Porcelain crowns can also be used to replace a missing tooth as a part of a dental implant. They’re custom-made to match the shape, size, and color of your teeth for a beautiful, natural-looking smile. Crowns are crafted for maximum durability and will last for many years.

Reasons for Dental Crowns

At Premier Birmingham Dentistry, our patients often choose dental crowns for several reasons. Some of which include:

  • Protecting chipped, cracked, or damaged teeth
  • Topping off a dental implant
  • Securing a dental bridge
  • Restoring a tooth after root canal therapy
  • Improving the appearance of crooked teeth

The Crowning Process

The entire crowning procedure is completed in as little as two appointments to our dental office in Birmingham, MI. Dr. Stone can restore your smile in just a few steps:

  1. At your first appointment, we’ll take several molds or impressions of your teeth to create your custom crown. We’ll also use this mold to create your temporary crown until your new crown is fabricated by a dental laboratory.
  2. While your tooth is numb, Dr. Stone will prepare the tooth by removing any decay and shaping the surface for a perfectly snug fit.
  3. We’ll place your temporary crown with temporary cement, and check your bite to ensure you’re biting down properly.
  4. Your second appointment will include removing your temporary crown, cleaning the tooth, and carefully placing your new crown. This will ensure an accurate bite and precise spacing, giving you a newly restored, beautiful smile!
