Dental Crown Treatment Dentists Ann Arbor Clarkston Plymouth MI

Wondering if you qualify to receive dental crown treatment? If so, it’s time to schedule an appointment with one of our dentists in Plymouth, Clarkston, and Ann Arbor, MI. During your consultation, they’ll be able to determine if you’re a likely candidate for dental crowns and create a treatment plan that’s tailored to your unique needs.

In the meantime, here’s what you need to know about dental crowns and what candidates for the procedure tend to have in common.

Significant Tooth Decay

Our dentists will most likely recommend fillings to restore teeth with small cavities. However, for significant decay, you’ll need a more substantial solution to restore your oral health. To treat large cavities, we often recommend dental crown treatment.

Once we’ve removed the decayed tooth structure, we’re able to restore what’s left with a porcelain dental crown so you can start smiling with confidence again as soon as possible.

Large Chips and Cracks

There are a number of reasons why you may have a chipped or cracked tooth, from untreated bruxism to sports injuries. Regardless of your circumstances, it’s vital that you schedule an appointment with our office as soon as possible to treat damage to the enamel.

Once the structural integrity of a tooth has been compromised, bacteria may be able to enter the pulp within. Once this pulp is infected, your only treatment option may be a root canal and crown. The sooner you see our dentists, the less likely you’ll require emergency care.

Root Canal Therapy

Each tooth has a soft center that’s composed of nerves and blood vessels. This center is called the pulp which, once infected, will need to be removed. If left untreated, an infected tooth may require extraction. Likewise, the infection may spread to other areas of the body and trigger health complications.

If you suspect you may need root canal therapy, don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment with our office to discuss your next steps.

Dental Implant Treatment

Getting a porcelain crown is the final step of the dental implant process. Once the titanium implant has formed a solid foundation in the jaw, our dentists will place the abutment and crown over top. Together, the implant, abutment, and crown will give you the full function and appearance of a natural tooth.

Deep Dental Staining

Were you exposed to excessive levels of fluoride as a child? Have you taken antibiotics or other medications that have discolored your teeth? If so, it’s worth asking our dentists if you’re a candidate for the dental crown procedure.

While dental crowns are often used to restore the strength and function of teeth, they may also be used for cosmetic purposes. For this reason, our dentists may recommend porcelain crowns or veneers to improve the appearance of teeth that don’t respond to traditional whitening methods.

Misshapen Front Teeth

Do you have front teeth that are misshapen? If so, our dentist may suggest either dental crown treatment or porcelain veneers enhance the aesthetics of your teeth. Dental crowns are designed to fit over entire teeth and match the rest of your smile.
