Affordable Dental Crowns in 11385
Once you stop getting visits from the Tooth Fairy and all your permanent teeth have come in you have to do everything you can to hold on to them. Teeth are susceptible to injury, disease and decay and may chip, crack or break. Once these injuries happen teeth have to be restored or they may soon be lost. Teeth restoration at the office of Dennis S. Block, DDS often means using affordable dental crown in 11385
(also known as a cap) to save the tooth and to bring its appearance back to normal.
A crown is a restoration that covers the tooth, it is molded by our restoration dentist to fit snugly over the remnants of your existing tooth and matches the height, color and positioning of the original tooth. The crown can be made of several different materials, such as porcelain baked onto a metal substrate, all porcelain or a variety of other ceramic materials. Our practice uses crowns for a variety of reasons including the restoration of a broken or cracked tooth, to correct a misshapen tooth, strengthen a weak tooth, to improve a tooth’s appearance, cover a tooth that doesn’t have much structure left to protect it from breaking, and to attach a bridge. The affordable dental crowns in 11385
are really the workhorses of dental applications.
If affordable dental crowns in 11385
are the selected treatment our dentist will take impressions and prepare the tooth for the crown. This usually entails removing part of the tooth’s remaining structure so the crown will fit snugly and blend naturally with the rest of the patient’s teeth. After this procedure our dentist will place a temporary crown on the tooth to protect it. If any preliminary procedures are needed, such as an endodontic treatment they will generally be performed before the tooth is prepared for the crown. Our practice works with a laboratory to custom fabricate the crown, which is cemented in place during the next visit. If something does happen to one of your teeth contact our office as soon as possible so we can save your natural tooth with a crown.
