What Is a Dental Crown?

Watch this video by Dr. Bruce Fine, an experienced New Jersey implant dentist, as he explains the application and durability of artificial composite resin teeth known dental crowns.

Certainly, let’s delve into what a dental crown is and what it can do. Dental crowns are remarkable dental restorations known for their transformative abilities. They are used to rehabilitate teeth that are broken, decayed, or have faced various dental issues. Essentially, a dental crown acts as a protective shell that envelops a tooth, effectively restoring its appearance and function. Imagine your tooth as a house that needs repairs due to decay or damage. The crown serves as the new siding and roof, providing structural support and strength to your tooth. The process involves removing a thin outer layer of the tooth and then cementing the crown in place. One significant advantage of dental crowns is their resistance to cavities.

While the tooth underneath may still be susceptible to decay, the crown itself cannot develop cavities. In many cases, dental crowns prove to be long-lasting solutions. I’ve had patients with crowns for 30 or even 40 years, and their teeth remain healthy and problem-free. The success and durability of dental crowns are evident in the experiences of most patients I’ve treated. If you’re interested in learning more about dental crowns and how they can benefit you, please schedule a visit to our office. I’m eager to meet you and discuss your dental needs. Have a wonderful day!
