DENTAL CROWNS WITH EXPERT BRONX COSMETIC DENTIST
LOOKING FOR A DENTAL SOLUTION THAT CAN PREVENT TOOTH EXTRACTION?
Crown is the answer and our skilled Bronx, New york based cosmetic dentist can help you with this.
Dental crowns may help if you have a wrecked or fractured tooth, have a cavity that is just too large for a filling, or if you had a root canal. Often, porcelain dental crowns may also be used as part of a smile make-over to give teeth a more stunning identical appearance or to replace an old worn-out or low quality crown.
Our objective is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We replace existing crowns and fillings with restorations that appear and feel like your natural teeth.
Where damage to a someone’s teeth is severe, we can use zirconia, porcelain, or porcelain-fused-to-gold crowns to make the smile appear “as new”. This is a tremendously dependable technique for repairing the most brutal of dental problems, even permanently replacing missing teeth to offer an absolute smile and a functional bite.
HOW MUCH TIME DOES IT TAKE TO FIT A DENTAL CROWN?
Fitting a crown requires at least couple of visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a temporary crown of either plastic or metal.
On the subsequent visit we will remove the temporary crown, and then fit and adjust the final crown. Finally, we will cement the crown into place and you have a new beautiful looking tooth.
WHAT ARE THE CAPABILITIES OF CROWNS?
Crown and bridgework is a very dependable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases or wear and tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. Material used in these repairs is either high-grade porcelain, or porcelain bonded to gold. A higher strength of the porcelain and gold materials is recommended to treat the most serious of dental problems. Where accidental damage has occurred, resulting in lost teeth, or where teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or as the result of old fillings breaking, crowns and/or bridges can be used as a long-term solution.
Key Benefits of Dental Crowns
- Replaces missing teeth
- Offers support to misshapen teeth or badly broken teeth
- Looks completely natural
- Fixes “smile” and functional chewing problems
Several people have unsolved pain from filled back teeth, which is usually due to hairline cracks in the chewing part of the tooth. Placing crowns on these teeth relieves the pain and allows a return of full dental function for these teeth. In front teeth, older fillings can both weaken the teeth and cause “appearance” problems due to staining or chipping. Porcelain crowns and bridges are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not. In teeth withroot canal fillings, crowns can prevent breakage.
When a tooth requires extensive repair or where a tooth is in need of filling and the integrity of the tooth is weakened, a crown may be necessary to avoid extraction. A crown is a restorative dental solution that covers a tooth in order to strengthen it while reshaping the tooth to its original shape and size. Crowns can also be used to attach bridgework, help prevent weak teeth from fracturing, or to renew fractured teeth. You have options when you need dental help.
