When a patient needs the shape, size, strength, or appearance of a tooth restored, Dr. McKinley and Dr. Holloway may recommend a dental crown in Shelby Township, Michigan. A dental crown is a custom-made cap that covers the entire visible part of the tooth. Our dentists may recommend a dental crown to:

• Keep a weak tooth from breaking
• Hold a cracked tooth together
• Restore a broken or worn down tooth
• Cover and support a tooth with a large dental filling
• Anchor a dental bridge
• Cover a irregularly shaped or badly stained tooth
• Cover a dental implant
• Improve the appearance of a tooth

To prepare a tooth to receive a dental crown, our dentists will remove a small amount of tooth enamel. This will allow room for the dental crown in your smile. Impressions of the tooth and those above or below will be made so that a dental crown can be custom made. Our dentists will also use a shade guide to select a color of porcelain that will match your natural teeth. When the dental crown is complete, our dentists will permanently cement it in place.
