Dental CrownsAre you dealing with a fractured or broken tooth in New York? Dental crowns could help you.

This tooth-shaped restoration is pretty amazing. After all, it can really do a lot to improve a smile, whether it’s being used for restorative or cosmetic purposes. Dental crowns are made from strong, tooth-colored material and are custom-made to fit over a tooth to become a protective and supportive barrier. In most cases, our Chelsea, New York, NY, cosmetic dentists, Dr. Joseph Sachs and Dr. Robert Cruz, will recommend a dental crown if:

  • You have a weak or damaged tooth
  • You have a tooth that is cracked or fractured
  • You have a dental filling that can no longer support the tooth
  • You need to undergo root canal therapy
  • You have a misshapen, worn down or severely discolored tooth (for cosmetic purposes)
  • You need to hold a dental bridge in place
  • You need to cover a dental implant to replace a missing tooth

If you need to get a dental crown in New York, or if you are considering whether a crown could improve your smile then take a look at the wonderful benefits you’ll enjoy with this restoration:

A Realistic Restoration

Here at Dr. Joseph Sachs & Associates, we pride ourselves on providing restorations that look as close to real teeth as possible. This is why every crown is customized to fit your smile. Non-metal restorations are the only way to go if you want to get a crown that looks just like a real tooth. No one will even be able to tell that you have a crown but you (don’t worry; we won’t tell!).

Preserve and Protect

In most cases, a dental crown is used to cover and restore a damaged tooth. As you may already realize, a damaged tooth can weaken even more over time and lead to fractures or other issues. A weak tooth cannot function at its best, even when it comes to chewing. In order to preserve the natural tooth structure, our restorative dentists will cement a dental crown over the tooth to protect it and restore function.

A Long-Lasting Tooth

Even though dental restorations are not designed to last forever a dental crown certainly has a good long life, as long as you do your part to maintain and care for the tooth. Thank the tough, durable material used to create your crown. With the proper care, your crown could last many years.

Here at Dr. Joseph Sachs & Associates in Chelsea, New York, we are dedicated to providing the very best in restorative dentistry. If you believe a dental crown may get your smile back on track then give us a call today. Let’s give you something to smile about.
