A dental crown treatment in Larchmont is used to completely cover a tooth that is damaged. Our dental crowns protect, strengthen, align, and improve your entire tooth. If you are looking for a durable and natural-looking restoration for a damaged or decayed tooth, continue reading to learn more about our quality crowns.
Our crowns are typically created to match the color of your nearby teeth. To create a tooth-colored crown, we will have it made out of porcelain or ceramic materials. These options look natural with your other teeth, so no one will know you have a restored tooth. If you are not interested in the aesthetic potential of a dental crown, we can also create strong crowns made of metal alloys or porcelain fused to metal.
A dental crown treatment in Larchmont is a durable option you should consider if you have a weakened tooth. Not only are our dental crowns natural-looking, but they are also strong and durable. The crowns we provide give your tooth protection against more damage or decay, or crowns can keep your tooth structure sound if you have a cracked or a chipped tooth.
While dental crowns can last a lifetime, crowns should last for at least five years, but more commonly longer. Most dental crowns will last around 15 years with the best care. Avoid using your crown to open packages or bite nails, and if you have night clenching or teeth grinding (bruxism) habits, wear a protective night guard to keep your crown in the best condition. Approximately 80 percent of crown failures are caused by unprotected bruxism habits. Notify our office during your appointment if you think you may be a night grinder, so we can help. For the longest lasting crowns, you should also have proper oral hygiene. Brushing and flossing your teeth will protect them from decay and help your crown ward off more potential decay.
A dental crown treatment in Larchmont can be performed for many reasons. Dental crowns are one of the most common restoration options because they have so many uses. You may need a dental crown to:
- Replace a large filling if not enough tooth is remaining to hold it in place. This normally occurs if you have a large cavity.
- Protect a weak tooth from breaking further if it has been fractured or chipped.
- Restore a damaged tooth to a more attractive appearance and stronger function.
- Cover a discolored, oddly shaped, or undersized tooth.
- Cover a tooth that recently received root canal treatment
- Attach a dental bridge or cover a dental implant for tooth replacements.
