A dental crown might be right for you if you have a tooth that is too weak to properly function due to damage/decay or has cosmetic imperfections that you wish to conceal. If you live in East Lansing and are intrigued by this premise, Dr. Thomas Faiver is the dentist you need to call!

What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a cap or cover that fits over a problem tooth. The crown protects the tooth from further damage and restores it so normal biting and chewing functions can resume. In the case of cosmetic concerns, such as a stained or discolored tooth, a dental crown conceals the imperfection and gives the tooth a brand new outer shell. Once in place, a dental crown looks just like a natural tooth and blends in seamlessly with the surrounding teeth.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

There are several benefits associated with dental crowns. As previously indicated, dental crowns strengthen, restore, and protect weak or damaged teeth. They also dramatically transform the appearance of less than perfect teeth. Your East Lansing dentist can explain how a dental crown can benefit you based on your specific needs and situation. Some common reasons for getting a dental crown include:

  • Protect a tooth following a root canal
  • Strengthen weak or damaged teeth
  • Restore normal tooth functioning
  • Conceal stains or discolorations
  • Protect cracked or chipped teeth
  • Correct the shape of misshaped teeth
