Bowtie Dental in Grand Rapids, MI is experienced in covering teeth with caps, also known as crowns. Dr. Langellier may recommend a crown for the following reasons:

  • Protect a weak tooth from fracturing or to restore a tooth that fractured
  • Attach a bridge or cover a dental implant
  • Cover a poorly shaped or discolored tooth
  • Cover a tooth that has had a root canal
  • To replace a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth remaining

Crowns can be matched to the color of your natural teeth with porcelain and will look completely natural. Dr. Langellier uses advanced technology that scans the tooth, which sends information to a lab where they mill an exact replica of your teeth. Your crown is made of the strongest porcelain available so you can have a crown that is tooth colored without compromising strength.

For a dental crown, Dr. Langellier will prepare your tooth and make a molded impression of the teeth to create a permanent crown.  He will make a temporary fitted crown to protect your tooth while the final restoration is being made.  Your permanent crown will be bonded at a later appointment. If time is of the essence, Dr. Langellier does offer crown services the day of, made by a professional lab technician.
