How to Fix Damaged Teeth: Dental Crowns in NYC
If you have a tooth that is too damaged or too deteriorated for a filling, we may recommend a dental crown to preserve your remaining tooth structure. A dental crown is a “cap” used to cover the damaged tooth entirely (up to the gums). Besides strengthening the tooth, crowns can improve a tooth’s appearance, shape, and alignment. Crowns are also used with an implant for individual tooth replacement.
At Advanced Dental Arts, our team recommends crown restorations for:
- Replacing a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth remaining
- Protecting a weak tooth from fracturing
- Restoring a fractured or broken tooth
- Covering a dental implant
- Covering a tooth that has had a root canal treatment
Our team of cosmetic dentists and a board-certified prosthodontist will work hard to help restore your smile’s beauty, healthy, and functionality.
A Natural Restoration
We use ceramic material that recreates the appearance of your natural tooth for the majority of our restorations. Depending on your specific dental needs, our prosthodontist or dentists may decide that a high noble metal crown (gold or gold alloy) may be more appropriate for you.
A damaged tooth left untreated could eventually lead to more extensive procedures (such as an extraction). At Advanced Dental Arts, our team is standing by to provide the crowns your teeth need to remain pain-free. Restore your ability to bite, chew and talk normally with dental crowns in NYC.
