Dental Crowns in Wayne, MI
Benefiting from a Dental Crown
If you’ve suffered from a dental accident or flaw, then a dental crown might be an ideal treatment for you. A crown is a protective, tooth-colored cap that’s placed over a tooth, dental implant, or bridge.
Typically, a cap is used to cover a damaged or mishappened tooth so a person can live with confidence and good health again. Dr. kaur will customize a crown using accuracy and precision so that it matches the color, shape, size, and strength of your natural teeth.
Are You a Candidate?
There are many reasons why someone might need a dental crown. Here at Village Dental, Dr. Kaur will always discuss your treatment options with you during your consultation before moving forward. A good candidate for a crown is someone who:
- Has a cracked or fractured tooth
- Needs to restore a poorly-shaped or uneven tooth
- Wants to enhance the appearance of a stained tooth
- Needs to restore a tooth that’s severely damaged by decay
- Wants to protect and restore a tooth following root canal therapy
- Has a dental implant and needs a dental restoration for it
How Dr. Kaur Places a Crown
After we’ve discussed your smile goals at your initial consultation, Dr. Kaur will take digital x-rays and impressions of your teeth so that he can begin planning your treatment. Your dental crown will be made at a dental lab and it generally takes two weeks, so your complete treatment time will be done in two visits.
During this initial visit, we will numb the tooth that’s receiving the crown and prepare it. By simply reshaping your tooth, this will help ensure your crown will fit precisely over it. We’ll place a temporary crown over your tooth so it remains protected while we wait for your crown to be made.
At your second appointment, we’ll remove your temporary crown and check to make sure your new crown will fit perfectly. After Dr. Kaur has permanently secured your crown over your tooth, you’ll be able to leave with a beautiful, complete smile. There’s no need for recovery and taking care of your crown is just as you would with your natural teeth.

Before getting a crown, Dr. Kaur will apply a local anesthetic which will keep you pain-free throughout the procedure. Following the procedure, you may experience minimal discomfort which can be addressed with over-the-counter pain relievers or a cold compress.
Please don’t hesitate to give us a call at our Wayne dental office if you do have questions or concerns about the procedure (734) 722-1617.
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 starting to become discolored, then we can offer you cosmetic teeth whitening treatment here at our office or provide you with at-home trays.
Preventive care is always the best way to avoid getting 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.
Issues that arise during your visits are best when treated early on so our team can provide you with immediate treatment before they become problematic.
