Damaged TeethGood oral hygiene practices and regular dental exams and cleanings are the best way to protect your teeth and gums and maintain a beautiful smile. But sometimes even your best efforts can't prevent accidents or the wear and tear that can stain or damage your teeth. Dental crowns are a reliable and durable restoration option for cracks, fractures, large cavities, and permanent stains and discolorations. They also replace missing teeth with a bridge. Dr. Robert Dame, a dentist in Grand Rapids, MI, offers cosmetic and restorative dentistry options for patients of all ages at North Park Family Dental.

Invest in a New Smile with Dental Crowns in Grand Rapids, MI

Crowns are a custom designed caps that cover a damaged or unattractive tooth. One of the most common uses for a dental crown is in cases of severe tooth decay, where a cavity becomes too large to be filled with a traditional filling. The crown restores tooth surface lost to decay or trauma from a fall, accident or sports injury. In addition to improving function, crowns also provide a major cosmetic upgrade for your smile. Crowns typically require two appointments to complete, but a temporary crown is available while you wait for the permanent crown.

Crowns and bridgework fix gaps in your smile if you are missing teeth. A bridge consists of three or more crowns - the crowns which are replacing the missing teeth, and an abutment crown on either side which are placed over the teeth to secure the bridge in place.

Crowns are also a good option for cosmetic improvements to misshapen teeth, or for severe staining and discolorations.
