Dental Crowns

Dentist In Kalamazoo, MI

If one of your teeth has become badly damaged, decayed, cracked, or fractured a tooth crown might allow our dentist to save the tooth.

Our Kalamazoo dentist can create a custom crown with our advanced dental technology.

What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are usually used to restore badly damaged or broken teeth. A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that fits over what remains of your natural tooth, allowing you to keep the functioning tooth’s root while protecting the rest of the tooth structure from damage. Our dentist will let you know if crowns are the best restorative option for you.

The Dental Crowns Procedure

Our team will first clean the area and prepare your tooth for the crown. This involves shaping of the natural tooth so that the crown can fit around it. Then, we’ll take a digital impression of the area so we can make your new crown. Once it’s ready, Dr. Busch-Abbate will cement your crown.

It’s important to take care of your crown if you want it to last for years to come. Brush and floss the area the same way you would with a natural tooth, and steer clear of foods that are too hard or sticky to avoid putting unnecessary stress on the area. If you grind your teeth, your crown will become more fragile over time.

To learn more about dental crowns, contact the team at Gentle Dentistry. Our dentist would be happy to discuss your options. Give our office a call at (269) 381-3890 to make an appointment today.
