Crowns & Implant Crowns Webster New York
Crowns and implant crowns are great options for patients needing dental restoration following significant tooth decay, damage, or injuries. They are often the preferable treatment for cavities that have grown too big for the tooth to be saved by standard filling or teeth that have been broken or chipped due to trauma.
While the extent of your tooth damage will determine which procedure is right for you, Dr. Cohen would be happy to consult with you about your options during your scheduled appointment.
Dental Crowns in Webster New York
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that fit over damaged teeth to restore them to normal functioning.
Made from ceramic, porcelain, metal alloys, or some combination of those materials, crowns provide a durable covering that reinforces the structure of your existing tooth. The materials used will depend somewhat on where the crown is located in your mouth and whether you prefer it to match the color of your teeth.
In order to have a crown installed, you will need a series of at least two appointments. During your first appointment, your dentist will remove any tooth decay and shape your tooth into a base that will hold the new crown in place. Then your dentist will take a mold of your teeth and send that mold to a lab to be cast into a crown that will perfectly fit into your mouth.
Once the crown has been formed and fitted properly and you are happy with the look, color, placement, and feel of it, the crown will be bonded permanently into place.
Dental Crown Implants in Webster
Dental crown implants function similarly to non-implant crowns in that they are made from the same materials and serve as natural teeth.
If your natural tooth could not be saved and had to be extracted a dental implant can be placed in it’s place. The dental implant is a titanium post that replaces a tooth root. The implant crown then gets fitted on top of the implant. Just like a regular crown, it is custom made to match your existing teeth for function and aesthetics.
To receive a dental implant crown, you will need several appointments. After the implant is placed and integrated into the jawbone, you’ll come back for another appointment to place the crown.
