Crowns

Dental crowns keep your smile attractive and functional. At Royal Dental Center in West Bloomfield, Michigan, Manal Ismail, DDS, uses dental crowns for many different functions. These caps can restore damaged teeth, attach to implants, and protect weakened teeth after root canal therapy. To learn more about crowns, call Royal Dental Center or schedule an appointment online today.


What are crowns?

Crowns are dental caps that cover the visible portion of a damaged or decayed tooth. They protect weakened teeth while restoring their shape, size, and color. Crowns also form a tight seal around vulnerable teeth to block out bacteria and food debris. 

While there are many types of materials to choose from, all-porcelain crowns are the most aesthetically pleasing for the front teeth. They’re stain resistant and match the natural shade of your teeth. Your dentist at Royal Dental Center may recommend a different material, such as metal or porcelain-fused-to-metal.

Who needs crowns?

At Royal Dental Center, your dentist may recommend a dental crown to:

  • Restore and protect a fractured tooth
  • Rebuild a severely worn tooth
  • Cover a tooth with a large filling
  • Protect a tooth treated with root canal therapy
  • Hold a dental bridge in place
  • Attach to a dental implant
  • Cover a severely discolored or misshapen tooth
  • Seal out bacteria to prevent tooth decay

Royal Dental Center offers single and multiple crown treatments to fully restore your smile’s appearance and function.

What is the placement process for crowns?

Placing crowns typically requires two visits to Royal Dental Center. During the first appointment, your dentist files and reshapes your affected teeth to prepare for the crowns. Next, they take digital impressions to create molds for the crowns. 

Creating crowns can take up to 2-3 weeks, so your dentist protects your teeth with temporary restorations until your second appointment. That’s when your dentist places the permanent crown and cements it into place.

How long do crowns last?

With proper care, dental crowns can last 5-15 years or more. Regular checkups with your dentist at Royal Dental Center can help preserve your crowns and extend their lifespan. These visits allow your dentist to detect and intercept early signs of damage and erosion.

What are the benefits of crowns?

Dental crowns serve many different purposes to protect and restore damaged or decayed teeth. These dental restorations can:

  • Improve your oral hygiene
  • Match the color of your teeth
  • Provide strength and durability
  • Enhance your oral function
  • Create a more uniform smile
