What Are Dental Crowns?

Crown restoration is a treatment offered by the skilled providers at Robert M. Taylor III, DDS to restore teeth that have been significantly damaged or decayed. Dental crowns are custom-made to blend evenly with your existing teeth and can be used to restore teeth that are broken, decayed, oddly shaped, or otherwise flawed. Crowns could also be melded into a unit to serve as a bridge or placed over single implants to replace a missing tooth. Set up an appointment with Dr. Robert M. Taylor III to determine whether a customized dental crown could elevate the appearance and health of your smile.

Am I a Candidate for Dental Crowns?

Almost anyone with a cracked, damaged, chipped, decayed, misshapen, or otherwise compromised tooth can be considered a candidate for treatment with a dental crown. Crowns can also be useful for concealing cosmetic imperfections and creating a more even, seamless, and beautiful smile. Prior to placing a crown, any decay, infection, or other dental health issue will first need to be treated. Patients with a severely decayed tooth, a tooth that is fractured beyond the gum line, and certain other types of damage may not be eligible for treatment with traditional crowns, but Dr. Taylor can recommend alternative options, such as implant-supported restorations.

At Robert M. Taylor III, DDS, we understand the self-consciousness and lack of use of losing or damaged teeth. Our team offers dental crowns as a choice for Bay City, MI patients who are hoping to enjoy benefits from the treatment, such as:

  • More natural and ease of talking, eating, and smiling
  • Simple, individualized treatment that requires very little recovery
  • Restored function and appearance of teeth and smile
  • Longitudinal results that should keep patients content for years to come

The Dental Crown Process

Dental crowns at our Bay City, MI office usually take two visits to complete. For the first part of your treatment, one of our dentists will administer local anesthesia to the affected tooth and clean out any infected areas. Once the tooth has been cleansed, an impression will be captured and utilized by a dental lab to create your unique restoration. A temporary restoration may be worn on the treated tooth to maintain function and a natural-looking aesthetic appeal throughout the time your restoration is being made. You should visit Robert M. Taylor III, DDS within 1 – 2 weeks following your treatment so that you can have the temporary crown taken off and your new dental restoration permanently attached to your tooth or implant post.
