Dental Crowns An Overview
Dental crowns are an all-encompassing solution commonly used to address a wide range of cosmetic and restorative dental concerns. A crown acts as a “cap” that is used to address extensive areas of tooth damage and tooth decay, covering the exposed part of the tooth above the gum line. A custom-designed crown offers natural looking, long lasting results.
Crowns are made from a range of materials. Our dentists will work with you to determine if porcelain, metal, or another type of crown is right for you. Our goal is to restore and repair your smile by using the most conservative means available. Your Nesconset Dental Associates dentist will explain all aspects of your care during your visit.
Dental crowns may be used to:
- Restore chipped, fractured, or damaged teeth
- Cover discolored teeth
- Address misshapen teeth
- Stabilize a tooth after a root canal
- Support a dental bridge
- Restore a dental implant
- Replace dental fillings

Dental Crowns What to Expect
Our dentists will recommend a dental crown when necessary. Each visit to our office begins with a consultation with one of our dentist. After a complete evaluation, we will recommend the best type of crown for your smile.
Receiving a custom crown will require 2-3 visits to our dental office. During the first visit, your dentist will prepare the affected tooth and take impressions. Crowns are designed to look and function as the natural tooth would. As skilled cosmetic dentists, we have the ability to color match your crown so that it blends seamlessly with your natural smile.
Once the desired aesthetic is reached, we will send your impressions to a dental laboratory for fabrication. During the fabrication process, we may place a temporary crown to protect the tooth and provide stability for your smile.
During the final visit, we will place your custom crown and make any necessary adjustments to your tooth. Your new crown is polished and shined to reveal a natural finish.
A well-placed crown can last many years with proper care and maintenance. We encourage patients to maintain a healthy oral hygiene routine and visit the dentist regularly to achieve quality results.
