Even though enamel is the hardest substance in our bodies, there are plenty of ways we can damage it. A broken, weakened, or unsightly tooth can take a toll on both your health and confidence. Thankfully, Dr. John A. Carollo can restore your beautiful, functional smile with a dental crown! These reliable restorations can be crafted out of a variety of materials to ensure the best results wherever they’re placed in your mouth. Call us today to schedule an appointment with your Florham Park dentist to see it you can benefit from a custom-made dental crown!

What Are Dental Crowns?

Essentially, a dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that’s designed to fit snugly over the top of a tooth. It encapsulates the entire visible surface (its crown) to hold the remaining natural structure together and fortify it. Dr. Carollo can craft your restoration out of metal, porcelain fused with metal, or dental ceramic depending on if it is being placed in the back, middle, or front of your smile, respectively. During your consultation, Dr. Carollo will fully explain your options, offer his recommendations, and help you determine which material is right for you.

What Are Dental Crowns Used to Address?

Dental crowns are one of the most versatile dental treatments available, as they can be used to correct a wide variety of issues, such as:

  • Teeth that have been weakened by decay or large fillings.
  • Cracked, broken, or fractured teeth.
  • Small, misshapen, stained, or otherwise cosmetically flawed teeth.
  • Teeth that have just been repaired with a root canal.
  • Replacing a missing tooth when paired with a dental implant.

What’s the Process for Getting Dental Crowns?

In most cases, we can design, create, and place your dental crown in just two quick appointments. First, Dr. Carollo will remove a small amount of enamel to make enough room for the crown to fit over the tooth. Then, he’ll take impressions of the area and send that information off to a dental laboratory, where they’ll be used to create your personalized crown. You’ll wear a temporary crown until you come back to our office when we receive your permanent restoration. Once we’ve bonded it in place and ensured your bite feels comfortable, you’ll be ready to enjoy your beautiful, functional smile!

What Are the Benefits of Dental Crowns?

Even though dental crowns seem like a somewhat simple restoration, they offer a wide range of benefits you may not have considered before, such as:

  • Restoring natural-looking beauty: An all-ceramic dental crown can be shaded to match the color of your teeth, making it practically indistinguishable from the rest of your smile.
  • Offering reliably long-lasting results: Dental crowns are designed to withstand all the pressure of daily chewing and talking and can easily last 10-15 years or more with the proper care.
  • Preventing future complications: Protecting weakened or broken teeth from further damage and decay dramatically lowers your risk of irreparable damage, serious dental infection, or needing a tooth extraction in the future.
