How Dental Crowns Work

Dental crowns are custom-made restorations that are expertly designed to match your natural teeth. Crowns are commonly used for both restorative and cosmetic treatments. You may be a good candidate for dental crowns if you have broken teeth or weak enamel. People with permanently discolored teeth or tooth sensitivity issues can also choose to receive dental crowns.

A dental crown procedure can be completed in two visits. With the traditional crown, the dentist first examines and prepares the selected tooth before reshaping the outer layer of enamel to make space for the crown. An impression is then created, and the mold is sent to a trusted dental laboratory. At Advanced Gentle Dentistry of Park Slope, we work with highly skilled and well-equipped laboratories that allow us to design and create quality crowns in just two weeks. Once your new crown is in place, you'll have fully restored function and appeal that will leave your smile feeling good as new.

Types of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns can be categorized into different types based on factors such as crown material, longevity, and placement procedure. As for the crown material, the most common types are ceramic, porcelain, composite resin, and zirconia.

You'll want to choose a crown material based on the type and function of the tooth, the color of the adjacent teeth, the position of the gum tissue, and the number of natural teeth remaining. Our dentist will help you define these aspects and choose the option that best meets your needs. There are also temporary crowns that are used to protect your teeth while you wait for your permanent custom crown to be finished.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

Getting a dental crown is critical to improving your oral health and enhancing your teeth functionality and smile. Whether you have an injured, decayed, or weak tooth, a dental crown would be your ideal option. Here are some of the reasons our dentist might recommend a crown:

They Are Highly Adaptable: Because a crown covers the entire visible tooth, they can be applied for a wide range of dental issues. They're also both durable and cosmetically appealing, so they can be placed on any tooth within your smile regardless of its function.

They Offer Full Protection: Crowns protect the entire tooth above the gum line, preventing further damage or decay from all angles. Even a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy can be restored effectively with a dental crown. The crown also helps enhance the tooth's functionality and protects it against re-infection.

They Help With Dental Emergencies: Temporary crowns are ideal for dental emergencies. If you need urgent care, the temporary crown will protect it until your final restoration is ready.

They Are Easily Customizable: Regardless of your teeth's size, shape, or color, you can always get a matching crown to complete your smile.

Our Dental Crowns in Brooklyn

Brooklyn dental crownsAt our practice, we offer quality dental crowns for Brooklyn patients looking to enhance their smile. We respect your unique needs and are ready to listen to your concerns, challenges, and preferences. Our dentist will also discuss the available dental crown materials and help you choose the best based on critical factors such as longevity, cost, and overall appearance. Our crowns are metal-free, made of materials that offer a natural color and luster so that they blend in with the rest of your teeth.

After examining, preparing, and taking an impression of your tooth, we'll fix a temporary crown to protect your newly prepared tooth until the permanent crown is ready. Our dentist will remove the temporary crown during the second visit and carefully fix the new one. We will also ensure that the crown matches the existing set of teeth and that it meets your needs.

To ensure the best care for your crowns, we will offer some helpful crown care tips. For instance, we recommend that you practice gentle brushing at least twice daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush. If the tooth inside the crown is still sensitive, consider using toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth. You also want to avoid hard foods, and if you grind your teeth at night, we'll recommend a night guard for maximum crown protection.
