What Are Dental Crowns?

Your teeth may be damaged because of injuries, decay, or years of use. Dental crowns are custom-made caps that fit over the surface of your tooth to restore its appearance, shape, size, and strength. At Lee Dental and Facial-Manhattan, we use dental crowns to cover, protect, and restore teeth in cases where fillings are insufficient to solve the problem. We offer both porcelain crowns and porcelain-fused-to-metal, and we'll discuss the advantages of either choice so you can select the type that's the best fit for you.

Reasons for a Dental Crown

Dental crowns are used for many restorative and cosmetic dental treatments. Our team may provide crowns for treatments such as:

Completing a Root Canal Treatment: A tooth that has undergone root canal therapy is crowned to offer adequate protection and restore function to the tooth. A crown will also protect the tooth from reinfection.

Restoring a Decayed Tooth: If your tooth has a large area of decay removed, a filling may not provide adequate material for restoring the full tooth structure. Covering your tooth with a crown will ensure the root is completely sealed off from damaging infection.

Protecting a Damaged Tooth: If a tooth has been cracked, broken, or worn down, a crown will restore its healthy shape. This improves function and prevents the damage from worsening or causing pain.

Improving Smile Aesthetics: A customized porcelain tooth is designed to feel and look natural within your smile. When the tooth is worn, misshapen, or permanently discolored, a crown will transform its shade and shape to make your smile more appealing.

Finishing Dental Implants: A dental crown will replace a missing tooth when attached to a titanium post fitted into the jawbone. Implant-supported crowns can be used for aesthetic front tooth replacements or restoring sturdy molars depending on your needs.

What Are the Advantages of Porcelain Crowns?

Dental crowns have many benefits since they cover the entire tooth surface. They're durable enough to last over a decade, and versatile for both cosmetic and restorative needs. The best thing about a crown is that it will feel and look like your natural teeth and won't require complex extra care. Some of the benefits of dental crowns include the following:

  • Durable and long-lasting
  • Blends with your natural smile
  • Protects teeth from damage or decay
  • Enhances the appearance of teeth
  • Treatment has a high success rate

Caring for Your New Crown

Dental crowns need the same care as your natural tooth structure. With good oral hygiene practices, your dental crowns will serve you for many years. You must brush your teeth at least twice daily to reduce plaque buildup. Flossing is also essential for your dental crowns since it prevents the accumulation of excess plaque and debris along the gum line. You should also visit our practice for routine dental examinations and cleanings twice a year.
