A dental crown may be exactly what you need to improve your smile and to restore your bite.
At many dentist offices, getting a crown can be quite a procedure, which can be spread out over multiple visits. If you would rather get a dental crown in a single appointment, then you should call Forever Young Dentistry in Sterling Heights, MI.
If you are in need of a dental crown, there’s no reason to make the process more complicated than necessary. Let us show you how to complete this treatment in a way that respects you and your time.
A Great Crown In One Day
Our dentist Dr. Michael Young wants to provide the best dental care possible, but he’s also made great patients service a priority as well. That’s a big part of the reason we have implemented the Planmeca Fit System in our practice.
At some places, getting a dental crown is almost an ordeal in its own right. You may come in, have your tooth reshaped, and get fitted with a temporary crown before you leave. You have to be careful with the temporary crown. You don’t want it to break or come loose before your permanent crown is complete.
And who is making that permanent crown? Someone in a dental laboratory is. As a result, it could take weeks before your dental crown is ready. Obviously, you aren’t going to sit in any dentist office for weeks until it’s ready, so you will need to make a second appointment — which means either more time away from work or more time away from your family and friends.
We like seeing our patients whenever they visit us, but we also understand that you would rather spend your time doing things that you want to do instead of driving back and forth to our office.
With our Planmeca Fit System, we can create your permanent crown and bond it to your tooth during the same visit that we reshape your tooth for the crown. This way, you don’t have to worry about wearing or losing a loose-fitting temporary crown, and you won’t have to make another trip later when the crown is finished.
With the Planmeca Fit System, Dr. Young can give you a dental crown in a couple hours instead of a couple weeks.
Why You May Need A Dental Crown
Dental crowns have been used for a long time by dentists to repair individual teeth. In fact, crowns are one of the most versatile services that we offer at Forever Young Dentistry.
Let’s take a moment to consider the reasons a dental crown could be good for you and your smile:
➤ You have tooth decay.
No one wants to hear that he or she has a cavity. Then again, no one wants to hear that they need a tooth removed either. But removing the decay and placing a dental crown, your tooth can look and feel as good as new.
➤ You have a broken tooth.
We don’t want to stereotype anyone, but we all know how popular football and hockey are in Michigan. Those activities can lead to broken teeth, especially when people play without taking the proper precautions (like wearing an athletic mouthguard).
Of course, you can break your tooth in other situations. Falling or walking into something can cause you to hit your mouth. Even biting into something can be enough to cause your tooth to break.
Whatever the reason, a dental crown can be used to restore the shape and function of your tooth when something has happened.
➤ You want your smile to look better.
Dental crowns are primarily seen as a restorative tool, however, they can and do have cosmetic benefits as well. You could have a discolored tooth as a result of an injury of some kind. You could have a misshapen tooth that just doesn’t look like you want your tooth to look. You may have a tooth that looks too small compared to the rest of your smile.
In these situations, a dental crown can give you a new “tooth” that blends in more naturally than your real tooth did.
