Dental crowns can also secure traditional dental bridges or cover single dental implants. Dr. Anthony Yaldo works with dental laboratories to provide dental crown treatment for patients in his Keego Harbor, MI, dental office. Dental crowns restore tooth function and create more stable and aesthetically pleasing smiles. Dr. Yaldo also provides additional restorative dentistry treatments to patients in Keego Harbor, MI.

Dental Crown Treatment in Keego Harbor, MI

Dr. Yaldo works with dental laboratories to create custom dental crowns. First, Dr. Yaldo will take X-rays to locate the teeth that require treatment. He will prepare the teeth for crowns by removing a small portion of the enamel. Etching into the enamel shapes the tooth to ensure the crown adheres properly and looks natural. Dr. Yaldo will take dental impressions of the treated tooth or teeth. Then, Dr. Yaldo sends these impressions to a dental lab, where technicians create crowns from porcelain materials. 

In the meantime, Dr. Yaldo will provide a temporary crown. Once the permanent crown is complete, Dr. Yaldo will remove the temporary crown and ensure that the permanent crown is in the correct shape and shade. Then, he will cement the crown on the tooth and polish the crowns for a natural sheen.
