Dental Crowns Near Me in Suffern

Dental Crowns Near Me

What is a dental crown?

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed on top of your tooth to cover the tooth. It can also be used to replace a missing tooth together with a dental implant or bridge. A crown can be made from a variety of materials such as metal, porcelain, resin, and ceramic.

You may need a dental crown to;

  • Protect a weak tooth
  • Restore a broken tooth
  • Cover and support a tooth with a large filling
  • Hold a dental bridge in place
  • Cover a discolored tooth
  • Support a dental implant

Dental crowns for children?

Dental crowns are mainly for adult teeth but your child can also benefit from a crown if;

  • They have suffered tooth decay; which is very common in
    children.
  • They basically have poor oral hygiene and are exposed to decay,
    and you want to protect their teeth.

Types of dental crowns

Your dentist will discuss the types of dental crowns and advice you according to your preferences. The most common types are;

Metal crowns

They are known for their durability. They can be made of gold, platinum, cobalt-chromium, and nickel chromium. They can last up to 15 years as they are less susceptible to cracks.

Stainless steel crowns

These are mainly for children who need to protect baby teeth. They are temporary crowns placed while you wait for longer-lasting crowns.

Resin crowns

Compared to metal crowns, these are generally less expensive but they wear down quickly.

Porcelain crowns

They look like natural teeth and are arguably the most appealing.

Porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) crowns

These are made of porcelain and metal. They combine the strength of metal with the aesthetics of porcelain.

Pressed ceramic crowns

These are similar to porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) crowns but they use ceramic in place of metal.
