Benefits of Crowns

Two of the major benefits of dental crowns are their extreme versatility and attractive, natural appearance. Made out of durable, tooth-colored porcelain, our dental crowns are specifically designed to match the shape, color and size of your surrounding teeth. Porcelain is one of the longest-lasting dental materials, and our crowns contain no potentially harmful and unsightly metal components.

The versatility of dental crowns comes from the wide range of issues they can help correct. One of the most common uses is to cover dental implants as a tooth replacement. We can also use them to strengthen teeth that are too badly damaged or to hold a filling on their own, a method that allows you to retain as much of your healthy tooth as possible.

Crowns can also serve to restore broken or damaged teeth as well as protection for teeth that are weakened or in danger of breaking. Damaged, discolored or poorly shaped teeth can be covered with crowns, and dental crowns can also serve as solid anchors for dental bridges that may otherwise have no fortified attachment points.

Dental crowns are just one of the many procedures we offer here in NYC at Smile in the City to help you achieve and maintain a healthy smile. Additional options from our experienced cosmetic dentist range from tooth whitening to full mouth reconstruction.
