Dental Crowns at Gentle Dentist in St. Clair Shores, Michigan

At Gentle Dentist in St. Clair Shores, MI, we specialize in providing high-quality dental crowns to restore the function and appearance of damaged teeth. Dental crowns, also known as caps, are custom-made restorations that fit over your existing tooth, providing strength and protection while improving your smile’s aesthetics.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns offer numerous benefits, including:

  • Restoration of Function: Crowns restore the ability to chew and speak properly by providing support to weakened teeth.
  • Aesthetic Improvement: They improve the appearance of discolored or misshapen teeth, giving you a natural-looking smile.
  • Durability: Made from strong materials like porcelain or metal, crowns are designed to withstand the pressures of biting and chewing.
  • Protection: Crowns protect a weakened tooth from further decay, cracking, or breaking.
  • Longevity: With proper care, dental crowns can last many years, making them a long-term solution for dental restoration.

How Long Does the Dental Crown Procedure Take?

The dental crown procedure typically requires two visits to our office. During the first visit, we prepare the tooth, take impressions, and place a temporary crown. This visit usually takes about 1 to 1.5 hours. The second visit, which involves fitting and securing the permanent crown, takes about 30 minutes to an hour. In total, you can expect the process to be completed in around two weeks from start to finish.
