Dental crowns restore and protect severely damaged or decayed teeth. A dental crown fits over a decayed, terribly stained, or damaged tooth.
Most dental crown procedures require two sessions, but some placements can occur on the same day. Dental crowns prevent other types of tooth damage (like cracks) while resembling natural teeth.
Our dentists check for cavities or cracks during your first dental examination. This process involves X-rays; if your dentist detects cavities or decay, they might suggest a tooth filling.
Your dentist first numbs your tooth and then uses a dental drill to eliminate decaying tissue. After cleaning your tooth with water, your dentist fills your tooth using a composite filling. We prioritize education and will discuss how to prevent any further tooth decay or damage.
For replacing teeth, many dentists recommend dental implants. Although dental implants involve surgery and may take two months or more, patients leave our office with beautiful and long-lasting artificial teeth.
Dental implants work by fusing to a patient’s jawbone, offering optimal support. With dentures and bridges mounted to your Gramercy Park dental implants, they won’t slip, shift, or affect eating or talking.
Patients can also choose bridges to replace missing teeth, which are far less expensive than dental implants when a patient is missing several teeth. Dental bridges consist of two crowns with a false tooth in the middle.
Many factors lead to teeth staining like:
- Poor oral health
- Consuming tea and coffee
- Tooth trauma
Our team provides both in-office and at-home teeth bleaching services. For in-office bleaching, your dentist starts by eliminating tartar from your teeth and gums, then uses carbamide or hydrogen peroxide.
