Dental crowns are amazing solutions for those patients that are looking to fill any gaps in their teeth, fix any dental problems, and unify the look of your teeth. This helps with the functionality and aesthetic appeal of your teeth. Dr. Koren in Raritan, and Sommerville, Branchburg, NJ, is passionate about you and your health and wants his patients to be comfortable and satisfied with simultaneously going self-confidence in themselves and their appearance.
Dental Crowns are essentially caps that are fitted specifically to fit your teeth. Crowns reinforce the teeth when problems like the following develop:
For patients that strive to have natural-looking teeth that function well, porcelain fused to metal crowns are the most common option.
Getting dental crowns installed usually takes about two to three visits to our Raritan office. At the first visit, Dr. Koren will prepare the surface of the tooth by shaping it and removing only a tiny amount of the tooth’s enamel, all while the patient is under anesthesia. After the tooth is reshaped, Dr. Koren will make a mold of the tooth in order to make an accurate crown that will fit your tooth and make it look as natural as possible. In the meantime, a temporary crown is installed while you wait for your permanent one to be made. After two or three week, Dr. Koren will cement the new crown into place, and you’ll leave our office with a brand new smile.
While dental crowns in Raritan, NJ, unfortunately, don’t last forever, they do last a long time and are pretty durable. With good oral care, good hygiene, and regular visits to our office, your crown can last 10 to 15 years.
If you have any more questions about dental crowns and want to know if they’re the right solution for you, don’t hesitate to give our office a call.
