Whether your tooth has suffered damage such as a chip or crack or has recently received treatment for infection, a dental crown may provide a reliable solution. Covering the entire portion of the tooth above the gum line, a dental crown can establish substantial protection to preserve the remaining natural structure. At Comprehensive Dentistry, Dr. Anthony Mancino strives to offer his patients only the best possible solutions for their oral health needs while ensuring the aesthetics of their smile are always a priority. With an emphasis on cosmetic dentistry, he provides his patients in Wall, NJ, with crowns composed of high-quality materials to not only ensure long-lasting results but to maintain a cohesive, beautiful smile.
Dental crowns—or caps—are placed over teeth to reinforce a decayed or damaged tooth. These caps mimic the natural shape of a tooth to complete your smile.
Typically, dental crowns may be used to:
A crown is usually recommended when a filling, inlay, or onlay is not sufficient to restore function. Depending on your needs, one crown material may be more appropriate than others.
We offer three types of dental crowns including:
Receiving a dental crown will typically require two appointments. Your first visit includes the consultation and preparation of the tooth. At this time, some of the natural tooth structure must be removed so the crown can fit comfortably amongst the surrounding teeth. We will then take impressions of your bite from which your custom crown will be hand-crafted at a trusted lab. Most patients will be provided with a temporary crown in the meantime.
If you are experiencing a sudden onset of pain or sensitivity, contact Comprehensive Dentistry office immediately. Dr. Mancino will examine your tooth to determine if a root canal is the best way to restore your oral health. He offers a complimentary consultation (a $250 value) for new patients.
