Dental crowns are an incredibly versatile solution to many dental problems, including teeth that are affected by decay, chips, cracks and other damage. How great your crown looks and feels depends on the skill and experience of your dentist. Dr. Alex Parshin is a reputable dentist that has placed many crowns in Staten Island and the nearby New York areas. He believes that crowns have many benefits, including the following:
Fortify and Strengthen Teeth
Crowns are designed to fortify and strengthen teeth that have lost a significant amount of structure due to either decay or injury. These restorations can save a tooth from needing to be pulled and replaced with a more invasive process. They also protect the tooth from further complications or injury.
Restore Normal Chewing Function
It can be difficult to chew and bite normally with a damaged or decayed tooth. Crowns restore complete chewing function and allow you to enjoy your favorite foods and beverages without problems.
If a damaged or decayed tooth is keeping you from feeling your best, crowns are a great option. Placing a tooth-colored crown over the affected tooth or teeth makes it possible to reclaim a complete smile and feel confident in your appearance.
Attractive and Lifelike
Modern dental materials, technology and techniques have blurred the lines between cosmetic and restorative treatments. What that means for you is that today’s dental restorations look more attractive than ever and are indistinguishable from your natural teeth. Crowns are often used to improve the aesthetics of an imperfect or unsightly tooth that is otherwise perfectly healthy.
Customized to Match the Surrounding Teeth
Dental crowns are typically customized to match the surrounding teeth. Your crown should be tailor-made to blend in with your natural teeth in terms of size, shape, color and texture. It should also support your bite.
Can Support a Dental Bridge
As mentioned, crowns are very versatile. A single crown can be used to restore a single tooth. Crowns can also be used to secure artificial teeth as part of a dental bridge. The crown is placed over the teeth on one or both sides of the gap left by a missing tooth, and the artificial tooth closes the gap.
Can Be Designed and Placed in a Single Visit
Traditionally, the process to create and place a dental crown required at least several dental appointments (more if adjustments were needed). But thanks to the revolutionary CEREC system, Dr. Parshin can design, fabricate and place a top quality dental crown in a single visit. This is perfect if you have a busy schedule that makes it difficult to return for repeat appointments, or you don’t want to wait several weeks for your crown. You can leave our office looking and feeling your best, thanks to CEREC crowns.
Strong and Durable
Depending on the material of your crown, your dentist’s expertise and how well you care for the crown, it should last many years.
