Teaneck Dental Crowns
Crowns are a cosmetic dentistry option used to strengthen injured teeth and restore aesthetic appeal. Dr. Ro and Dr. Cantuarias place dental crowns to fix worn down, cracked, broken or decayed teeth.
The protective cover fully encases natural tooth and is cemented in place. As a result, the crown acts as an extra layer of enamel. A dental crown can be made of metal, porcelain or a combination of both. Porcelain is the preferred material for dental restorations because it mimics the look of natural teeth and is very durable.
Dental crowns in Teaneck are a necessary solution when a broken-down tooth can no longer hold a filling. But tooth fillings, where the material is packed into the tooth, a crown is custom crafted in an outside lab. Your dental crown is designed solely to fit your bite and jaw movements to properly restore normal mouth function.
