Highland, MI dentist explains the dental crown (tooth cap) procedure

Dental crowns (also called “tooth caps”) are one of the most frequently used dental restorations in the United States, and for good reason. They are incredibly versatile and can not only restore the function and shape of a tooth, but also its appearance. For this reason, patients choose dental crowns for both cosmetic and restorative purposes. At Milford Dental in Highland, MI, we use a highly personalized evaluation and treatment process, and dental crowns may be used alone or in conjunction with other treatments to help you achieve a healthy, functional, and beautiful smile.

The dental crown procedure

The first step in any treatment is a consultation with Dr. Seguin. During this time, she performs an in-depth evaluation of your teeth and gums to determine the best treatment options for you, in addition to talking with you about any symptoms you are experiencing as well as your treatment preferences and desired results. She takes the time to answer any questions you have so you can feel confident about your treatment plan. We will also discuss your dental crown cost and payment options for fitting your treatment into your budget. Her team is always happy to help you determine whether your dental insurance benefits will cover your treatment and if you will have out-of-pocket costs.

Getting a dental crown placed typically takes two visits to the office. In the first visit:

  • Dr. Seguin will numb your tooth and the surrounding area with an effective local anesthetic so you are comfortable throughout the procedure.
  •  If a crown is being used to repair a tooth that has been damaged or is decayed, Dr. Seguin removes the damaged structure from the tooth and disinfects the area.
  •  The tooth is shaped for the placement of the crown so that the tooth cap sits snugly over it without adding bulk to your mouth. We take dental impressions of the tooth so that your crown can be custom fabricated from  high-quality dental ceramic. 
  • A temporary crown will be placed on top of the tooth to protect it while your new crown is being made.

About two weeks later, once your lab fabricated crown is ready, you come back into the office. Dr. Seguin will place the crown on your tooth to ensure that it fits properly. After making any small adjustments necessary, she will then cement the crown onto your tooth with a strong dental cement, and you are free to enjoy your functional and natural-looking new tooth.
