Dental Crowns Midtown East
Our goal is to provide dental solutions that blend well with your natural smile.
Where damage to a person's teeth is extreme, and apparently beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain "pasted on gold" crowns to make the smile appear as new. This is reliable technique for repairing the most serious problems. It is normal for these treatments to last for 20 to 30 years, which is as close to permanent as dental treatments can get.
How long does it take to fit a dental crown?
Fitting a crown requires at least two dental visits. Initially, decay is removed, the teeth are reshaped, and a temporary crown is fitted.
On the subsequent visit, we will remove the temporary crown, and then fit and adjust the final crown. Finally, we will cement the crown into place to supplement your new smile.

What are the capabilities of crowns?
Crown and bridgework is a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases or wear and tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. Material used in these repairs is either high-grade porcelain, or porcelain bonded to gold. A higher strength of the porcelain and gold materials is recommended to treat the most serious of dental problems. Crowns are a long-term solution to cases of missing teeth.
Numerous patients experience pain from filled back teeth, this is due to hairline cracks in the chewing part of the tooth. Placing crowns on these teeth relieves the pain and allows a return of full dental function for these teeth. In front teeth, older fillings can both weaken the teeth and cause staining or chipping. Porcelain crowns and bridges are suitable for these cases. In teeth with root canal fillings, crowns can prevent breakage.
