Dental crowns are custom restorations that fully cover tooth structure above the gumline. They are used to treat problems that dental fillings and more conservative cosmetic restorations cannot effectively address.
Many dental offices place temporary crowns after an initial visit and make patients wait for their permanent one to be made. Our Lake Orion, MI dental office can have your tooth restored in just one visit, as we have CEREC technology in-house that produces our crowns without that frustrating delay.

- Two appointments required
- You receive a temporary crown, which can be uncomfortable
