If a tooth is significantly decayed or damaged, our experienced dentist may recommend a crown. A crown is a type of dental restoration that completely covers the damaged tooth starting at the gum line. Dental crowns are designed to match the shape, size, and appearance of your natural teeth to provide a functional, natural-looking restoration. Depending on your specific dental needs and preferences, crowns can be created from gold, porcelain, resin, or porcelain fused to metal. Dr. Jon Ackerman will help you determine which type of dental crown is best for your smile. Your dental crown in White Plains, New York will be custom made to perfectly fit your bite and blend in beautifully with your natural teeth. A dental crown can be used for a variety of purposes, including:
- To repair a severely decayed or damaged tooth
- To attach and anchor a dental bridge
- To cover and complete a dental implant
- To strengthen a fractured or weakened tooth
- To improve the function and appearance of a misshapen tooth
If you believe that your smile may benefit from a dental crown, we welcome you to contact us today. We look forward to caring for your smile!
