Crowns Q & A

What are crowns?

Crowns are caps that fit over your natural teeth. They are porcelain, porcelain fused with metal, resin, solid zirconia, or other dental material. Crowns improve the function and appearance of teeth that are:

  • Discolored
  • Misshapen
  • Decaying
  • Weak
  • Too small
  • Cracked
  • Chipped
  • Gapped
  • Damaged

Crowns also protect teeth after a root canal, support dental bridges, and fit over dental implants to replace severely decayed, loose, or missing teeth and restore your beautiful smile.

Am I a good candidate for crowns?

To determine if a crown is the right dental restoration procedure for you, Dr. Rozenberg examines your teeth and mouth, reviews your medical and dental history, and takes dental X-rays. 

If you have minor tooth decay or damage, she may recommend porcelain fillings, inlays, or onlays, which are smaller than crowns.

You can receive a crown for restorative or cosmetic reasons, and Dr. Rozenberg is an expert in placing crowns for both.

What happens during crown placement?

Crown placement is a multiple-step process. During your first visit with Dr. Rozenberg, she prepares your tooth by drilling old fillings, cleaning out decay, or reshaping the tooth. 

She takes digital scans or impressions of your tooth and sends the information to a nearby dental laboratory, where technicians create a custom crown. You receive a temporary crown in the meantime.

When your permanent crown is ready, you schedule a second appointment at Rozenberg Dental NYC for crown placement. Dr. Rozenberg adjusts your permanent crown, ensures a proper fit, and cements it onto your natural tooth where it remains. The new crown perfectly matches the color and shape of your surrounding teeth.

If you require dental implants prior to crown placement, Dr. Rozenberg surgically places titanium implants into your jawbone and allows them to heal before creating custom crowns.

How should I care for crowns?

Crowns look and function like real teeth. Care for them by brushing your teeth at least two times daily, flossing every day, and not chewing hard objects like ice and hard candy. 

Call Dr. Rozenberg for a same-day appointment if your crown becomes loose or damaged, and attend routine dental cleanings and exams every six months.

Don’t live with tooth damage that can ruin your confidence or lead to more serious dental problems. Schedule an appointment with Rozenberg Dental NYC over the phone or online to find out if crowns are right for you.
