Dental Crowns Q & A

What are dental crowns?

Dental crowns are strong, tooth-like caps that fit over your natural teeth to restore them. Crowns can also attach to dental implants to replace missing teeth. Dr. Bronstein offers a wide array of dental crowns to match your needs and the color of your surrounding natural teeth.

What are the benefits of dental crowns?

Dental crowns can perfect the appearance and strengthen teeth that are:

  • Decaying
  • Chipped
  • Cracked
  • Discolored
  • Broken
  • Crooked
  • Gapped
  • Missing
  • Misshapen
  • Too small

Crowns look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. They are long-lasting and strong and can give you the beautiful smile you long for. Crowns can also protect your teeth from future damage.

Are dental crowns right for me?

To find out if dental crowns are right for you, Dr. Bronstein examines your teeth and gums, discusses your desired outcome, and takes dental X-rays. He personalizes each dental crown treatment and may recommend more than one cosmetic dental procedure to give you the best results.

What happens during dental crown placement?

The process of getting a crown may involve two separate visits.

During the first one, Dr. Bronstein digitally scans your tooth to develop a custom-made crown that fits over your natural tooth.

To place an implant-supported crown, he surgically implants a titanium post (dental implant) into your jawbone and allows time for it to heal.

When your new crown is ready, Dr. Bronstein secures it in place over your natural tooth or attaches it to a dental implant. The crown remains in place long-term when cared for properly.

How should I care for a dental crown?

Take good care of a dental crown by not chewing on hard candy, ice, or other hard objects. Brush your teeth twice a day and floss daily. Call Dr. Bronstein’s office if your crown gets damaged or becomes loose, and see him every six months for dental cleanings and exams.
