Same-Day Dental Crowns

MB Dental Pros offers Same day crowns a convenient alternative to traditional crowns that take around two or more weeks to create and place. The same-day crown process begins with your dentist taking dental impressions to make a 3-D model of your smile using CAD/CAM software. Once the crown has been designed to fit in perfectly with the rest of your teeth, it is placed and shaped accordingly, all in one convenient appointment!

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are three or more dental crowns that are attached together and made to fit over three or more teeth in a row. These custom restorations can be used to protect teeth and restore their appearance, and they are a great option for replacing missing teeth. To learn more about dental bridges or our other restorative and cosmetic options, please contact our office at (517) 676-4545, and we will be happy to help you.


A filling is used to treat a small hole or cavity in a tooth. To repair a cavity, a dentist removes the decayed
tooth tissue and then fills the space with a filling material.


Tooth decay is damage to a tooth that can happen when harmful bacteria in your mouth make acids that
attack the tooth enamel. This can lead to a small hole in a tooth, called a cavity. More severe decay can cause
a large hole or even destruction of the entire tooth. If tooth decay is not treated, it can cause pain, infection,
and even tooth loss.

When a tooth is frequently exposed to acid—for example, if you eat or drink often, especially foods or drinks
containing sugar and starches—the repeated cycles of acid attacks cause the enamel to continue to lose minerals. A white spot may appear where minerals have been lost. This is an early sign of decay.

Tooth decay can be stopped or reversed at this point. Enamel can repair itself by using minerals from saliva
and fluoride from toothpaste or other sources. But if the tooth decay process continues, more minerals are
lost. Over time, the enamel is weakened and destroyed, forming a cavity.


There are several types of filling material currently available to repair cavities, including tooth- colored
(composite) fillings and silver-colored (amalgam) fillings. We use composite resin materials which are increasingly used to fill teeth because many people prefer tooth-colored fillings and because composites continue to improve.

There are also treatments called crowns, used to repair badly broken-down teeth. Crowns can be made of
gold or other metals, porcelain, or stainless steel (usually used on baby teeth). Generally, dental fillings and crowns do not last a lifetime.
