We can replace large, worn-out fillings with natural-looking, ceramic crowns in our NYC offices. The state-of-the-art, high strength, metal-free crowns will restore damaged teeth and eliminate dark areas at the gum line to provide a completely natural-looking appearance. Porcelain to gold crowns are also available and may be indicated in some circumstances. We can replace missing teeth with permanent bridges which look, feel and function like natural teeth or with implants that are the ultimate in tooth replacements.
Did you know your teeth are coated in the hardest substance in the human body? Tooth enamel coats our teeth and helps to protect them from tooth decay and damage. However, our teeth can still become chipped or cracked, requiring restoration.
We will often place a natural looking porcelain or ceramic crown to restore the tooth to its former function and appearance. At Central Avenue Dental, we can improve the health and beauty of your smile, one restoration at a time.
A crown acts as a cap that fits over the visible portions of your teeth. They can be made from a variety of materials. In the past, they were primarily constructed using metals, such as gold or regular base metals.
While gold may still be recommended for teeth near the back of the mouth, which must endure more serious bite forces, we typically use ceramic materials to repair and restore the teeth. Ceramic, or porcelain, offers a similar translucent appearance as natural tooth enamel.
In addition, the material contains stain-resistant properties, providing a lifelike restoration that blends with your surrounding teeth.
We may place one for a variety of reasons, including:
Prior to placement we will of course carefully examine your teeth to make sure this is the best option for improving your oral health.
What does the placement process involve? First, we will need to prepare the teeth requiring treatment. We will remove a small amount of structure and then take detailed impressions of the teeth. We send these materials, along with the doctors’ exact specifications, to a dental lab.
Using the materials, an expert ceramist designs and fabricates a crown from the ceramic material. Once complete, you will then return to our office.
We will check the fit for comfort and accuracy before we place it using a powerful bonding agent. In the interim period between preparing the teeth and receiving the completed crown, we may place a temporary crown.
