Dental Crowns in Wayne, MI
Stunning Dental Crown Restorations
Dental crowns are recommended to resolve a number of oral health issues, restoring beauty and stability to damaged teeth. If one of your teeth has suffered an accident or become decayed, a dental crown could be an ideal treatment solution. The procedure for applying a dental crown is simple, painless, and quick to complete over just two short appointments.
A dental crown is a protective, tooth-colored cap that’s placed over a damaged tooth to shield it from infection and enhance its appearance and stability. Dr. Seth customizes dental crowns to precisely match the shape and color of each patients’ natural teeth, restoring smiles that look natural and inspire confidence.

Are You a Candidate?
There are several reasons why patients might benefit from a dental crown. During your consultation at Village Dental, Dr. Seth will discuss treatment options and help you make an informed decision that promotes lasting oral health.
Dental crowns can be used to remedy issues including:
- Cracked or fractured teeth
- Teeth with severe decay
- Misshapen or uneven teeth
- Large, unsightly fillings
- Badly discolored teeth
Dental crowns are also applied to finalize other treatments, including root canal therapy and restorations like dental implants and bridges.
How Dr. Seth Places a Crown
After we’ve discussed your smile goals at an initial consultation, Dr. Seth will take digital X-rays and detailed impressions of your teeth so that she can begin planning your customized treatment.
During the initial visit, we’ll numb the affected tooth and the surrounding area before preparing the targeted tooth for crown placement. Dr. Seth will gently reshape your tooth, creating room for the crown to be precisely placed over it and ensuring a perfect fit. Impressions are then taken and set to a dental lab, where your crown will be fabricated over two weeks. We’ll place a temporary crown over your tooth to protect it while you wait for your final restoration.
At your second appointment, we’ll remove your temporary restoration and check to make sure your new crown fits perfectly. After Dr. Seth makes any necessary adjustments, he’ll permanently secure the crown over your tooth with a reliable dental composite. Once your second appointment is complete, you’ll leave with the confidence that comes from a beautiful, full smile.
There’s no recovery period to worry about and preserving the health of your crown is just like caring for your natural teeth. By brushing with a soft-bristled toothbrush and a non abrasive toothpaste, along with daily flossing, you’ll maintain your dental crown for years to come.

Unfortunately, your dental crown can’t be whitened with a teeth whitening gel itself because it’s specifically made in a dental lab to match your natural teeth. However, if you notice that your natural teeth are becoming discolored, we can offer a professional teeth whitening treatment or provide you with custom at-home whitening trays.
Preventive care is always the best way to avoid needing a dental crown. Visiting our office for regular exams and checkups, in addition to regular brushing and flossing, will ensure your dental health stays on track.
