Dental Crowns in NYC

Sometimes your teeth may need a little more than a filling. It may be chipped, fractured or broken, or it may require a larger amount of decayed material removing. So, how does your dentist repair that? Very often, a crown is used to repair the area.

What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental Crowns are a little like a cap that fits over a tooth. They are generally made from porcelain and match your teeth very well. They give a protection to a tooth that is brittle, broken or sensitive and can be used to bridge between two teeth. Occasionally a metal shell may be required underneath the dental crown to provide more strength to your teeth.

Why Get Dental Crowns?

There are a few reasons to have dental crowns fitted. More commonly they include:

  • Root canal work

    If you needed root canal work previously, then this can leave your teeth weaker and more brittle. Dental crowns help to keep them strong avoiding further work or issues.

  • Crowns enhance your smile

    Dental crowns are usually made from porcelain, which is a similar color to your natural teeth.

  • Protection

    Crowns protect your teeth from further decay. They add strength to teeth that are already brittle, preventing further damage caused by fracturing.

  • Improve malformed teeth

    By adding a cap to any malformed or uneven teeth you can instantly improve the look of your teeth.

The Process of Getting Dental Crowns

As with many tooth-filling procedures, you will need a local anesthetic to numb the area. Once the anesthetic has taken effect, the dentist can then remove any decay to reveal the area in the tooth where the dental crown is going to be placed. Your dentist will need to take a mold of that area. You will be provided with a temporary or transient crown or filling, as the dental crown will need to be created to the specifications of the mold. Your next visit will then be scheduled. At this point, the temporary crown will be removed and discarded, and the permanent dental crown will be inserted in its place.
