Dental Crowns at Herald Square Dental and the Denture Center in New York
A crown is a metal or porcelain cap that covers a problematic tooth completely. Crowns fit tightly at the base of a patient’s gum and protect what remains of the natural tooth. Porcelain crowns or porcelain on metal crowns replace the exterior portion of a tooth to re–establish its original function and to create a natural appearance.
Do you have a cracked or broken tooth?
What about a tooth that’s decayed too much to hold a filling?
Did you know that if the crack or decay extends into your root, you will have an even worse dental problem?
Dental crowns are a long lasting and beautiful option for a natural-looking and comfortable solution to cracked, broken, or excessively decayed teeth.
Crowns are the treatment of choice in situations where tooth decay has destroyed most of the original tooth, when a traumatic event has caused damage, or in cases of severe enamel erosion. They are also an treatment option for people who grind and clench their teeth. Grinding often results in the compromising of the original structure of the teeth.
The great benefit to porcelain crowns is they can not only replicate the original tooth in function, but can be designed to look like the original–or even better!
Maintenance of Your Crowns and Bridgework
Maintaining porcelain crowns is actually quite simple. Much like your original teeth, they require routine brushing with non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste and regular flossing and regular dental checkups.
