Dental Crowns in Queens
If you've recently broken a tooth or had an old, large filling fall out, it could cause a lot of pain or embarrassment. Without addressing the problem with dental care, your brittle tooth could continue to break down even further. Fortunately, rather than having your tooth removed, we can preserve it with a full-coverage crown.
Instead of "filling" the damaged portion of the tooth, a crown covers its entire surface up to the gumlines. We generally recommend these customized restorations for instances involving:
- Large cavities
- Root canal treatments
- Fractures/injuries to the tooth
- Restoring dental implants
With a crown, your tooth can continue functioning normally without additional fractures or wear.
Rebuild and Enhance Your Smile
Once our dentist in Queens has determined whether or not you need to have a crown, we will generally phase the treatment out over two separate visits.
During the first appointment, the tooth is numbed, prepped, and an impression is taken. Then, we send the model of your tooth to our lab, where a customized porcelain crown is hand made to match your neighboring teeth. About 10-14 days later, your permanent crown will be ready to bond into place.
Delaying your crown could pose problems to your tooth, allowing it to break down so that it is no longer restorable. Covering the weak structure allows you to get several more years out of your smile, without the extra risk of tooth loss.
