Bronx Dental Crowns

Crowns are important dental tools that the team at Your Bronx Dentist uses to address a wide range of oral needs. For more than 30 years, we’ve helped patients use crowns to fix cosmetic concerns, protect teeth from future decay, and more. A crown could be the best solution for your current dental issues.

What are dental crowns?

A versatile procedure with many compositions

A dental crown is like a “cap” that mimics the exact size and structure of your tooth. It’s placed over a tooth to restore shape, size, strength, and appearance. Every crown is cemented into place to remain firmly in the position needed to cover the tooth.

Many different materials can be used to make crowns, including metal, resin, and ceramic. While metal crowns are the strongest and longest-lasting, they’re also the boldest in appearance. Many patients prefer to reserve metal crowns for their back and out-of-sight molars.

Resin crowns, are less expensive and tooth-colored, but they don’t offer the durability of metal crowns. Ceramic crowns also match natural tooth color and make a great alternative for patients allergic to metal.

Why would you need a crown?

Your teeth are vulnerable to many types of damage that could require a crown. If you can relate to any of the following, ask your dentist about dental crowns:

You need to cover a tooth after a root canal

You need to complete a dental implant

You want to cover unattractive teeth

You need to cover and protect a tooth that just had a large filling placed

You want to restore a damaged and worn tooth

You need to protect a weak tooth to prevent additional damage

Placing an extra layer of protection and support over vulnerable teeth is an effective way to maintain your healthy smile and save yourself from additional dental troubles.

About the procedure

In most cases, the dental crown process takes two separate dentist visits. Your first appointment allows your dentist the time to examine your affected tooth to make sure a crown is the proper solution. As long as your dentist approves the use of a crown, he’ll take impressions to be used to make the permanent crown. A temporary crown will be placed to keep your tooth safe until the final crown is ready.

At your second visit to Your Bronx Dentist, your permanent crown will be affixed to your tooth with a strong adhesive. You don’t need to worry about a long recovery process after your crown is placed, but you may need to adjust to the new feel of your mouth as you chew and talk. As time goes on, your crown will feel like a completely normal and natural part of your mouth!
