Dental crowns, also referred to as tooth caps, offer a versatile solution by completely encasing a damaged or weakened tooth, providing both strength and protection. At Gramercy Dental Center, we go the extra mile to ensure your dental crowns are not just functional, but also aesthetically pleasing.
Our porcelain crowns, made with high-quality materials, seamlessly blend with your natural smile, creating a beautiful and natural appearance. Compared to other types of crowns, such as silver amalgam, porcelain has cosmetic benefits while still remaining durable restorative dentistry options.
We recommend dental crowns for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, dental crowns are used to either restore or strengthen a damaged or decayed tooth. They may also be suggested to replace large dental fillings that put a tooth at risk.
If you are experiencing tooth pain or sensitivity when chewing or drinking hot or cold beverages, it may be time to book an appointment with our team. Other signs that you may need a dental crown include visible cracks or chips in your teeth, deep cavities, or discoloration. Our team of experts will assess your needs and recommend a treatment plan that is right for you.
Our tooth crown procedure begins with a comprehensive consultation. We’ll delve into your concerns, assess your oral health, and take digital X-rays to understand the extent of tooth decay. Once we’re ready to begin, we’ll start by preparing the tooth. This involves removing decayed enamel and shaping the tooth to create a snug fit the dental crown. Impressions are then taken to craft a custom crown that fits and matches your natural smile. To safeguard the prepared tooth, a temporary crown is bonded into place.
Once your permanent crown is ready, we’ll ask you to return to our office to complete the treatment. The temporary crown is gently removed and replaced by the permanent crown. We’ll take extra care to check your bite and comfort before bonding it into place with a strong dental adhesive.
Porcelain crowns, with proper care, can last a decade or more. Their long lasting durability is one of their greatest strengths for preventing tooth decay or damage from reaching further into the tooth. Here are a few tips we recommend to maintain their longevity:
