What Is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that slips over an entire tooth to restore its structure and function as well as protect it from further damage. It can also be used to improve the appearance of an imperfect tooth. Crowns repair cracked and worn-down teeth in order to restore your smile back to its former glory.
When Is a Dental Crown Necessary?
Your dentist in Roselle Park can use a dental crown to correct any of the following problems:
- Significant tooth decay that cannot be successfully treated with a filling
- Broken or fractured dental structure that needs additional support
- Weakened teeth with large fillings that can no longer function at the necessary level
- Significant cosmetic imperfections
- Supporting a tooth that has been treated with root canal therapy
- Restoring a lost tooth that has been replaced with a dental implant
The Dental Crown Process
Most dental offices take at least two appointments to place a crown, but not Roselle Park Dental & Implants. Here, we have the technology available to save our patients valuable time by placing a dental crown in a single day.
First, we take impressions of the tooth that will receive the crown as well as the two teeth on either side of it in order to create the most accurate restoration possible. You’ll only have to wait an hour or so while our machine creates your crown out of pressed metal-free ceramic materials. Once that process is complete, we’ll make sure the crown fits within your bite and make any adjustments as needed. After we’ve determined that the crown fits like a glove, we’ll permanently bond it to your tooth and send you on your way!
