Damage to a tooth can happen instantly due to a sudden injury, or gradually over a period of years due to enamel erosion, food dental crownsconsumption, or the basic process of aging. A dental crown can restore that damage and extend the life of your tooth for 10 or more years. Dr. David Campbell can administer this helpful dental treatment at his family dentist office in White Lake, MI.

Dental Crowns—An Invaluable Restorative Treatment
Millions of patients, including some people you know, have had their teeth repaired and strengthened with dental crowns. In fact, the American Academy of Implant Dentistry estimates that at least 15 million people have them. Modern crowns look so natural that most people can’t even tell that you have one. They are hollow porcelain shells that are shaped and sized to look like naturally contoured teeth. Once a crown is cemented to your tooth, it replaces the outer enamel, making it stronger, whiter, and much more beautiful.

Uses for Dental Crowns
Crowns have a number of valuable uses in dentistry. They hide dental imperfections, including cracks, jagged edges, intrinsic discoloration, and tiny teeth. They shore up eroded enamel. After a patient has root canal therapy, the newly disinfected and filled tooth is then secured with a dental crown to ensure a better healing process. Dental bridges also require two crowns for support. Additionally, crowns are used with dental implants to restore missing teeth.

What Your Appointment Will Be Like
Expect little to no discomfort at your crown appointments. Your White Lake family dentist will remove a certain amount of dental material from the affected tooth, then take a mold of the remaining abutment. After a few weeks, you'll return to see your dentist for the final step—bonding the crown and adjusting it to fit comfortably between your teeth. 

A Stronger, More Attractive Smile with Crowns
Some of your teeth may have lost their resilience and beauty, but they can be restored with dental crowns. Call Dr. Campbell, your White Lake, MI family dentist, at 248-887-8387 to schedule a crown consultation visit.
