Who is a good candidate for Porcelain crowns in NYC?

Porcelain Dental crowns are an excellent cosmetic option to restore weakened or damaged teeth.  Latest technological advancements enable us to make porcelain crowns that are strong, durable, and highly esthetically pleasing.  A porcelain crown placed over a tooth can help keep it healthy.  Each porcelain crown is custom made to fit in your mouth precisely.  The dentists in our NYC midtown Manhattan office can help determine if you are a candidate for porcelain crowns. 

Making the Porcelain Crown

To make a porcelain crown, the tooth is first prepared by a cosmetic dentist.  Then a quick impression of the tooth is taken. The next step is to scan it into our computer’s 3D software.

Our master ceramist will design the digital crown using the 3D software. Before the crown is milled the master lab technician makes sure the design of the new crown is optimal.

The lab technician uses the software to make sure the contacts, bite and the margins on the new Porcelain crown are exactly correct. Once the 3D model is ready, the computer mills the ceramic crown from a block. The crown from start to finish is ready in just hours.

Advantages of Porcelain Dental Crowns

Molar Tooth Restored with a Porcelain Crown

A significantly damaged molar tooth either from tooth decay or tooth fracture can be restored with a porcelain crown.  The porcelain crown surrounds the tooth fully to protect the tooth from further breaking and even helps prevent future cavities.  The porcelain crown feels smooth and functions like a real tooth.  It’s advised for root canal teeth to get a crown to increase the tooth’s lifespan.
