Dental Crown Services
Dental crowns are bonded to a tooth in order to restore oral health and to improve the appearance of your smile. At Innovative Dental Care, we often recommend a dental crown to patients whose teeth lack enough healthy enamel to support a filling, or to top off a dental implant.
Same-Day Dental Crown Services In Islip
Dr. Morris can also offer same-day dental crowns with advanced in-house milling technology. Our lab quality restorations are made right here at our local Islip dental practice, so you don’t have to spend two weeks waiting for a new dental crown or dental bridge to be shipped in from an off-site facility.
What Is A Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” made of porcelain, that is placed over a tooth to help restore its shape, strength and size. A dental crown is often the ideal choice to recreate the appearance and function of a tooth damaged by decay or trauma.
The crown replaces the external portion of the tooth down the the gums in order to help preserve the appearance of the patient’s smile. Our Islip dental team may recommend a crown to:
- Cover a dental implant
- Restore a broken or worn tooth
- Protect a tooth, weakened from decay, from breaking
- Hold a dental bridge in place
- Cover a misshapen or discolored tooth
- Support a tooth with a large filling
- Reinforce a tooth treated using root canal therapy
Is A Dental Crown The Right Choice For Me?
Most people are ideal candidates for a crown. This dental procedure can improve the appearance of a damaged tooth while also restoring the tooth’s natural function. After a dental crown is placed, most patients are able to enjoy chewing without pain and can once more smile with confidence.
How Long Will A Crown Last?
Most crowns last between 5 and 15 years. It depends on the wear and tear the dental crown is exposed to and if a patient takes care of the crown with regular brushing and flossing. A crown should be treated just like your natural teeth, so regular cleanings and checkups at Innovative Dental Care are important!
