What are dental crowns?
Dental crowns are tooth-like caps or covers that are securely placed over your existing tooth to enhance its appearance, shape, and strength. Dental crowns, also known as white crowns or tooth-colored crowns, can be permanently cemented into place to protect an existing tooth. In most cases, white dental crowns are used to protect a damaged or decaying tooth from additional damage or the possibility of a fracture. When a dental crown is placed correctly, your real tooth will not be visible at all. The majority of dental crowns are made out of porcelain for the most natural-looking and aesthetically pleasing smile.
When are dental crowns needed?
Dental crowns are often used to protect a damaged or decaying tooth from additional damage and to minimize the stress placed on that damaged tooth. If you have received a large filling that leaves little of your natural tooth left, a dental crown can be placed to achieve a more natural-looking smile. Dental crowns can also be used to restore a broken or fractured tooth that has been worn down. For cosmetic reasons, dental crowns can create a more even, white smile by covering discolored teeth or teeth that are uneven or irregularly shaped. Finally, dental crowns are also used during dental implant surgery to cover the dental implant.
|Dental Crowns Can|
|Treat damaged or decayed teeth|

What are the benefits of tooth-colored dental crowns?
Dental crowns are long-lasting tooth replacements that can help you achieve a natural-looking and even smile. Tooth-colored dental crowns are custom shaded to match the color of your existing teeth. White dental crowns can help strengthen a tooth or teeth and reduce the possibility of further damage, decay, or fracturing. After dental implant surgery, dental crowns are securely placed on your dental implants, allowing you to enjoy virtually any food again.

What are dental crowns made out of?
At Classi Cosmetic & Implant Dentist of NYC, our dental crowns are made out of porcelain for the most natural-looking results possible. Dr. Classi is a mercury free dentist who does not use metal crowns. Dr. Classi strongly believes that metal crowns, which contain compounds that can be dangerous to your own health, provide significantly less natural-looking results. Our priority is to help you regain a full smile without metal crowns. Metal crowns cause the smile to look less aesthetically pleasing and can make some patients feel uncomfortable about their smile. Additionally, metal crowns can discolor your gum line and leave a dull grey hue.
