A dental crown is an aesthetic restoration used to strengthen a tooth or improve its shape. They are bonded onto an existing tooth and fully cover the portion of your tooth above the gum line. In effect, the dental crown becomes your tooth’s new outer surface.
Our Jenison family dentists at McMahon Family Dental will use CEREC technology so you can receive a same-day crown. CEREC crowns are designed and fabricated in our office so you don’t have to deal with the hassle of a temporary crown while waiting for your tooth restoration to be made in an off-site lab.
Our dental crowns are made of ceramic that mimic the translucency of natural teeth. Your CEREC crown can also be made in one appointment, yet will be strong enough to last for years to come. During your appointment with us, our dentists will file down the receiving tooth to make room for the dental crown.
A tooth crown can repair:
- Cracked tooth
- Fragile tooth after a large filling fails
- Large cavity
- Fragile tooth after root canal
- Extreme wear from teeth grinding
- Tooth discoloration
