Our Dental Crowns Can Restore Your Smile

A dental restoration can address dental damage or treat cavities or infections to repair your smile and prevent worsening discomfort. Our team can provide custom crowns, full and partial, to offer optimal oral health again. In today’s blog, our Syosset, NY, dentist talks about our custom dental crowns!

The Reasons to Receive Treatment

A dental crown, whether full or partial, is a custom restoration that can address oral health concerns and complications too severe to be treated with composite resin. For example, we could offer care for teeth that have been cracked or chipped, or severely broken. Placement could lengthen structures worn down by teeth grinding, or treat tooth decay too severe for a filling. Our team can complete a root canal if you have an infected tooth, and also improve bite balance and chewing function too. Placement can also aid in tooth replacement, as these can secure a bridge or complete an individual dental implant.

Partial Restorations

Partial crowns, known as inlays and onlays, address issues too severe for a filling or bonding procedure, but not severe enough that a full is necessary. The inlay is designed to fit in between the cusps on top of the teeth, while inlays fit over these cusps. We can create them from materials like ceramic, which can be shaded to blend with the tooth and can absorb daily bite forces with ease. We will numb the tooth, remove structure from the area being treated, and take digital images and impressions to design and craft your custom restoration. We then attach it with a powerful bonding agent.

Dental Crowns

A full crown is one that fits over the entire visible portion of your tooth. These can address all of the structure above the gum line and offer more dramatic restoration. Again, we will use ceramic in many cases as this material can absorb bite forces and be color matched to blend with your smile. With the full, we again numb the tooth but this time we remove more structure to make room for the restoration. We take images and abutments again to design and craft the custom restoration in a lab setting. We then attach it with a powerful bonding agent.

To keep them bright and in place, you need to brush and floss daily, eat a healthy diet, avoid tobacco products, and see us for checkups and cleanings every six months. If you have any questions about our full or partial options, then contact our team today to learn more.
