Restoring a Damaged Tooth with a Dental Crown

A tooth that has sustained extensive decay or trauma will typically require a restorative treatment to strengthen its structure. If a compromised tooth requires more support than a standard filling provides, the tooth is usually capped with a dental crown. Dr. Gerald Grossman of Westbury, NY, offers high-quality dental crowns made of zirconia and e.max, each customized to appear natural and fit precisely. These extremely durable crowns are fabricated in collaboration with world-renowned ceramists so that your restoration blends in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.

Why a Dental Crown?

A traditional dental crown is a restoration that completely encircles a tooth. Dental crowns provide a higher level of support for a damaged tooth than dental fillings, inlays, or onlays, which rest over a portion of the tooth. Crowns have a number of applications, including:

  • Capping a tooth following root canal therapy
  • Replacing a failed restoration
  • Reinforcing broken, fractured, or decayed teeth
  • Replacing a missing tooth using dental implant technology
  • Concealing a tooth with cosmetic flaws
Dental crowns
Natural-looking dental crowns can be provided for patients who have sustained decay or trauma too extensive to be fixed with a dental filling. 

How is a Crown Placed?

Your dental crown placement will typically require two dental appointments. At the first visit, Dr. Grossman will remove the structurally compromised or decayed portions of the tooth. He will then shape the remaining tooth structure to accommodate your customized crown. Next, he will use the advanced 3Shape TRIOS CEREC machine to take 3-D digital impressions of your tooth. This allows for highly detailed impressions while avoiding the messy and uncomfortable materials used for traditional impressions.

Dr. Grossman will remove a small amount of enamel so that the dental crown can fit comfortably between the neighboring teeth.

Ceramicists at an outside lab will use these digital impressions to fabricate a crown that fits precisely over your damaged tooth. Detailed instructions on the materials and shade of the restoration will also be provided, helping to ensure that the color of your crown matches your natural enamel. Our office makes only zirconia or e.max crowns. This represents the apex in dental crown materials, allowing for restorations that can withstand immense bite pressure while mimicking the translucency and sheen of real enamel.

It will take approximately two weeks for your crown to be crafted. You will return to our practice to have your permanent crown placed. At this time, Dr. Grossman will prep the tooth by buffing and cleaning it. Finally, he will carefully place the crown over the tooth, ensuring an optimal fit, and then cement it in place.
