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.

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.
