What are dental crowns?

Dental crowns are synthetic caps placed over damaged teeth to restore their size, shape, and function. Our team uses dental crowns for a variety of purposes that take both function and aesthetics into account. Dental crowns are most often used when little of your original tooth structure remains. Dr. John Wiltz may suggest a dental crown to:

  • Support a large filling or root canal treatment
  • Repair moderate to severe tooth decay or damage
  • Anchor a dental bridge
  • Complete a dental implant

If we determine that a dental crown in Davison, Michigan, is the right option for your smile, we will guide you through each step of the treatment process so you can feel confident in your smile.

How are dental crowns made?

Thanks to our powerful E4D technology at Irish Road Dental, our dentist is able to design, create, and place your dental crowns in a single visit to our office. In the past, multiple visits and messy molds and impressions were necessary to restore your smile. By using innovative imaging technology and remarkable speed and accuracy, we can mill your dental crown and apply it to your tooth in a fraction of the time as traditional dental crowns. Our crowns are also made from a natural, tooth-colored material to ensure that your restoration is beautiful. If you have any questions, we invite you to contact our dental office today. We look forward to restoring your smile!
