Dental Crowns An Overview
Dr. Daryle Mahnke is a general dentist in Bay City, MI who restores structurally unsound teeth with dental crowns. Whether you need to replace an existing restoration or have a tooth that needs a crown, Dr. Mahnke can create custom dental crowns that look and feel like natural teeth. We use tooth colored materials like porcelain that are virtually undetectable and extremely long lasting.
Dr. Mahnke is among the first dentists in Bay City to use CEREC technology, an advanced system that allows us to design, create and place porcelain restorations in just one visit. Dental crowns often require two or three visits. With CEREC technology, Dr. Mahnke can fabricate a highly aesthetic dental crown in his Bay City dental office and place it on the same visit.
What is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is sometimes referred to as a tooth cap or tooth crown that is used to restore cracked teeth, crooked teeth, and teeth that have been compromised by cavities. The dental crown covers the entire tooth, like a cap, and is permanently cemented into place.
Benefits of Porcelain Dental Crowns
There are many materials that a dentist can choose from for creating a dental crown. In most cases, Dr. Mahnke chooses porcelain dental crowns because of their superior aesthetics and long-term durability.
- Metal-free – do not cause discoloration along the gum-line conventional metal dental caps
- Extremely natural looking – porcelain dental crowns are made of layers of fine ceramic material, to match natural tooth enamel
- Long lasting – porcelain dental crowns are highly durable, as well as stain resistant, meaning they will last for years to come
