A dental crown is a protective cap that your dentist cements in place on a decayed or broken tooth, making it good as new. A color-matched filling may be an appropriate treatment for a minor cavity, but it’s not sufficient for larger damage to a single tooth. When you undergo a root canal procedure, for example, you need a dental crown to cover and protect the tooth from further decay.

In Lower Manhattan, you can choose a family dentist who’s also an exceptional cosmetic dentist: Dr. Alex Shalman. He cares about your oral health first and foremost, but he also watches the appearance of your smile. As a result, he provides not only the best teeth crowns, expertly prepared and placed, but also the most advanced color-matching process available, so your crown becomes just another tooth.
The reason you may need a crown depends on the type of crown you’re getting. There are two specific types: a dental cap and the crown of a dental implant. You may need a dental cap to:
The crown for a dental implant, called a post crown, is a whole tooth replacement. The implant is embedded in your jaw, where it stimulates the bone and becomes the foundation of a single tooth implant. Once it’s firmly integrated into the bone, your dentist attaches a full-tooth replacement to the implant’s post or abutment. The crown of a dental implant can also anchor a bridge or complete a smile makeover.
A crown offers many advantages over other tooth repair methods, such as bonding or extraction. When shaped and colored by an experienced dentist like Dr. Shalman in Downtown Manhattan, your new crown:
You don’t have to do anything extra to care for your crown, but you do have to continue to practice good oral hygiene habits. By brushing twice a day and flossing at least once a day, you ensure that your crown lasts up to its maximum lifespan.
Gold, the most malleable metal in the world, used to be the standard for crowns, but it drove up the dental crown cost. Plus, a metal tooth is difficult to hide, making it obvious you have a crown. While gold crowns may come and go in style, a knowledgeable cosmetic dentist knows that the best smiles are those with hidden or repaired imperfections. So Dr. Shalman rarely recommends gold crowns. To get a natural look for your smile, you may choose resin, which is the material used in fillings and bonding. But resin wears down quickly, making it a poor choice to use as a dental crown. You still have many material options, but most require two office visits to get your permanent crown. Choices include:
Tooth pain can signal many different conditions, from minor tooth decay to a dangerous tooth infection.
