Crowns Q&A

What are dental crowns?

A dental crown is a protective cap that covers a damaged or weakened tooth. Crowns fit perfectly over your tooth to act as a protective barrier between the surface of your tooth and the forces of chewing.

NYC Dental Wellness and Bergen Dental Wellness offers customized crowns made of durable materials like metal, zirconia, porcelain, ceramic, and porcelain fused to metal. The team will determine which crown is right for you during an oral health exam.

Why would I need dental crowns?

You could be a candidate for dental crowns if you have teeth broken or weakened by decay or that are cosmetically imperfect. NYC Dental Wellness and Bergen Dental Wellness offers crowns to address:

  • Chips and cracks
  • Broken teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Large cavities
  • Enamel erosion
  • Discoloration
  • Teeth that are too small or too sharp

You’ll need a crown after a root canal, a minimally invasive procedure to remove inflamed nerves and infection from within the tooth.

Crowns restore stability to your tooth to prevent them from breaking. The dental team can also attach crowns to tooth restorations like bridges and dental implants to replace missing teeth.

What can I expect when getting a dental crown?

During your initial appointment at NYC Dental Wellness and Bergen Dental Wellness, the team examines the condition of your teeth to determine if you need a dental crown. They also treat existing decay before you receive your crown.

To prepare your tooth for a crown, the team shapes and trims the tooth. They take an impression of your tooth and send it to a dental lab that makes your custom-fitted crown. The lab uses durable materials to create the crown, matching the shade of your natural teeth.

While you wait for your new crown, the team places a temporary crown to protect your tooth and restore your smile. Getting your permanent crown back from the lab can take a few weeks. At a subsequent visit, the team permanently bonds the crown into place.

You care for your new crown just like your natural teeth by brushing and flossing daily. You also need to schedule routine dental cleanings and an oral health exam every six months so that the team can ensure your crown is in good condition. The team can repair or replace a crown if you break or lose it.
