Dental Crowns

Cosmetic and family dentist in Woodbury, NY

Over time, teeth begin to weaken. This leaves them more susceptible to problems such as decay, cracks or discoloration. A dental crown can renew the appearance and function of a tooth.

Dental crowns can:

  • Protect a weak tooth from breaking
  • Hold a cracked tooth together
  • Cover and support a damaged or decayed tooth
  • Cover a severely discolored tooth
  • Restore a broken or severely worn tooth

Also, dental crowns are often used in conjunction with root canal therapy, dental implants or as an anchor for a bridge.

Crowns are made from porcelain fused to zirconia to give incredible strength, yet realistic beauty. Other times, we use porcelain to gold crowns. These are the best materials. Other lesser materials include porcelain to silver and porcelain to non-precious metals. Although less expensive, the quality is severely limited.

Once treatment is complete, continue routine brushing and flossing. Keep regular office visits to help your crown last many years. For more information or to request an appointment, contact our team at Advanced Dentistry of Long Island today. We can’t wait to see you!
