When a significant portion of your tooth has been lost to disease, Drs. Kinra and Kinra will likely suggest a dental crown in Jackson, Michigan. Dental crowns are a common type of dental restoration used to repair moderate to severe disease or damage, allowing our team to save a tooth that may otherwise have been lost. The goal of a dental crown is to restore the size, shape, appearance, and functionality of a tooth. There are many reasons why our dentists may suggest a dental crown for your smile:
- Repair extensive damage
- Hold a broken tooth together
- Prevent a cracked tooth from breaking
- Anchor a dental bridge
- Complete a dental implant
- Boost the aesthetic of your smile
It generally takes two visits to our dental office to create your dental crowns. Each dental crown is custom made from molds and impressions of your smile by a high-quality dental laboratory. Once the crown is back at our office, we make sure each dental crown fits properly and looks great with your smile before cementing it permanently in place. To learn more about dental crowns and how they can benefit your smile, we encourage you to contact us at Great Lakes Family Dental today. We look forward to working with you and your family to enhance your smile.
