Maspeth NY Dentist: Dental Crowns

Maspeth NY Dentist Dr. Alexandra Khaimov: A crown is normally prescribed when the dentist detects a fractured tooth, observes a tooth that is severely damaged by decay or one that may have a large filling that has deteriorated beyond repair.  Once the damaged portion of the tooth is stabilized and decay is removed, the crown will protect the remaining tooth structure.

Although there are several materials for making crowns, including gold, porcelain and combinations of porcelain and metal, the final product will normally appear and function just as the original tooth.  A crown procedure requires at least two visits to the dental office.

During the first visit, tooth decay will be removed, the remaining tooth structure will be shaped and the dentist will use a molding compound to take an impression that will be used at the laboratory to manufacture the crown.  The dentist will also spend time with you in determining the proper color shade of the crown so that it closely matches your surrounding teeth.  The dentist will use a special binding material to cement a temporary crown in place until the permanent one is sent back from the laboratory.  At Best Choice Family Dental your permanent crown is ready in only few days.

Maspeth NY Dentist Dr. Alexandra Khaimov specializes in metal free crowns because the esthetic result often can be better when metal is not used as
an underlying material and wear of opposing teeth is less with all ceramic crowns.
