The Versatile Role of Dental Crowns

Dental CrownsWe provide dental crowns in East Orange so that our patients can have a healthy and beautiful smile.  Many people are unaware of the role that dental crowns play in modern day dentistry, thinking only of amalgam crowns.  If you think of a mouth full of metal or currently have one, there is a better solution for you now.  We offer natural looking ceramic crowns that resemble your teeth.  They do not stand out in any way.  In fact, they blend in seamlessly to give you a beautiful smile regardless of whether you need a restoration, a protective barrier or a cosmetic solution.

Cosmetic Dentistry

If you have something that you do not like about your teeth, there is a good chance that we can correct it using one of our cosmetic dentistry solutions.  Dental crowns are a popular choice because they can be used to correct damage and improve the appearance of teeth at the same time.  As they are placed on the teeth, they can cover dark stains that were not removed with whitening, close gaps in between teeth, change the overall shape and size of teeth and even make teeth appear straighter. Since they cover your existing teeth, you do not need to have them removed in order to see the change.  Simultaneously, if you are missing any teeth, crowns can be used in the creation of a dental bridge.  In this procedure, crowns are placed on the two teeth surrounding the missing one, and they serve as an anchor.  By doing so, they hold the bridge and new tooth in place so that you can love your smile again.  All of this can be completed in our East Orange dental office under sedation so that you can remain comfortable and relaxed.

Preventative Care

In many cases, we use dental crowns to protect teeth.  One challenge that many people face with age is that the enamel on their teeth begins to erode.  This happens due to the food that you eat, brushing too aggressively, a lack of dental care and basic aging.  When it happens, eating food that is cold or too hot can cause discomfort and make eating a challenge.  Fortunately, we have a solution by way of the dental crown.  Since it is a cap, it can surround your tooth or teeth and prevent anything from touching it directly.  That way you can eat and bite down without fear of sensitivity.  This also works if your tooth is cracked or chipped or if you have had a root canal and need your tooth structure restored.  Any time that the enamel from your teeth is missing or damaged, a crown can repair it.  The only question is which type of crown you should use.  An all-ceramic crown works well on the front teeth where a ceramic-on-metal crown works well for back teeth and molars because it is stronger and more durable.
