Dental Crowns

Have Stronger and Confident Smiles

Dental CrownsDental Crowns encase the entire damaged tooth surface and restores it to its original shape and size. Dental crowns protect and strengthen the tooth structure that cannot be restored with composite tooth fillings or other types of restorations.
Although there are several types of dental crowns. A tooth-colored crown or porcelain crown is the most popular because they resemble your natural teeth. They are highly durable and will last many years. But like most dental restorations they may eventually need to be replaced. Porcelain dental crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color or your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.

You need a dental crown if you have:

  • Broken or fractured teeth.
  • Cosmetic enhancement.
  • Decayed teeth.
  • Fractured fillings.
  • Large fillings.
  • Tooth has a root canal.

Dental Crowns Groton NY

A dental crown procedure usually requires two appointments. Your first appointment will include taking several highly accurate molds (or impressions) that will be used to create your custom dental crown. A mold will also be used to create a temporary dental crown which will stay on your tooth for approximately two weeks until your new crown is fabricated by a dental laboratory.

While the tooth is numb, your Groton dentist, Dr. Ali will prepare the tooth by removing any decay and shaping the surface to properly fit the dental crown. Once these details are accomplished, your temporary crown will be placed with temporary cement and your bite will be checked to ensure you are biting properly.

At your second appointment your temporary dental crown will be removed, the tooth will be cleaned, and your new dental crown will be carefully placed to ensure the spacing and bite are accurate.
