Do you hate looking in the mirror and seeing those damaged teeth? Call us today at 248-972-8720 and schedule an appointment for dental crowns. Dr. Newingham has studied with the prestigious Spear Education, giving him advanced training in restorative dentistry. With his help, your smile can look and feel healthy again.

What Is A Dental Crown?

A dental crown looks just like one of your natural, healthy teeth. It’s made specifically for you on a case-by-case basis. Dental crowns are more-or-less caps that fit snugly over your teeth. Once placed, they correct many problems such as:

  • Chipped enamel
  • Cracks
  • Stains (both food-based and intrinsic)
  • Weak enamel
  • Broken teeth

Dental crowns can even be used to replace a missing tooth.

Same-Day Crowns With CEREC Technology

At our Birmingham, MI dental office, we have technology that many dental offices do not: CEREC. The Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics system creates beautiful, strong dental crowns while you wait. Instead of sending your measurements off to a lab and waiting a few weeks for it to be made. Dr. Newingham can make your crown right here. It can even be finished the same day as your appointment.

CEREC dental crowns are just like any dental crown. They’re natural-looking, and they correct problems with your teeth. You just don’t have to wait weeks to get those problems fixed.

4 Reasons People Love CEREC Dental Crowns

1. Dental crowns can repair damage caused by a cavity too big for a dental filling.

Cavities do not stop growing until they are treated. What makes this worse is how there are no nerve endings in your enamel. You can have a cavity without knowing it. That means it can grow so big that a dental filling won’t stay in. Since a dental crown covers the entire visible part of a tooth, it can be used to repair cavities too big for conventional fillings.

Because you can have cavities without any symptoms or signs, call us today at 248-972-8720 and schedule an appointment. Dr. Newingham has many years of experience, so he knows how to spot cavities. If the cavity is big, he has the training to seal up and protect that tooth with a CEREC dental crown.

2. Dental crowns can protect a cracked or broken tooth.

It’s hard to crack or break a tooth, but it’s certainly possible. Accidents and sports injuries can do more than just chip the enamel. You can break a piece off or have a crack. Both threaten to cause you pain and eventually require a dental extraction — unless you protect it with a dental crown.

Call our Birmingham, MI dental office today to make an appointment for a dental crown. With his advanced training, Dr. Newingham can expertly place our CEREC dental crowns over damaged teeth. Once in place, your tooth will look and feel healthy again.

3. Dental crowns can strengthen a tooth after a root canal.

When harmful bacteria get inside a tooth, it can be very painful. Root canals remove such infections and save your tooth. But to do that, a small opening needs to be made in the tooth to reach the infection. Dental crowns are used to seal up a tooth after a root canal, making sure it’s both pain-free and strong.

By calling Newingham Dental Center today, you can schedule an appointment for a dental crown after a root canal. Dr. Newingham can remove the temporary filling placed by your endodontist and seal up the tooth with one of our CEREC dental crowns.

4. Dental crowns can replace a missing tooth as part of a dental bridge or dental implant.

You deserve all your teeth. Until you replace a missing tooth, your smile will look unusual and you can have trouble chewing some foods. There are two common ways to replace a lost tooth: dental bridges and dental implants. Both use dental crowns as the replacement tooth because they look and feel natural.

That’s why you need to call our Birmingham, MI dental office today for dental crowns. Whether you need a dental bridge or a crown placed atop your implant, Dr. Newingham has years of experience with both.

Call us TODAY at 248-972-8720 and schedule your next appointment for CEREC dental crowns. Newingham Dental Center has its own CEREC technology to make your dental crowns the same day as your visit. Soon, you’ll see why so many people love CEREC dental crowns.
