Capital Region Complete Dental Care and Implants offers restorative dentistry for lost, damaged and decayed teeth. One of the most common treatment options to address these common concerns is the dental crown. Also known as a “tooth cap”, a dental crown will fit completely over the tooth to improve both strength and aesthetics.
A highly trained dentist with over 30 years of experience, Dr. Frederick Marra can place a high quality, custom fit dental crown. Dental crowns may be recommended for a wide range of both restorative and cosmetic concerns:
- Cracked or chipped teeth
- Decayed teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Crooked or misshapen teeth
- Replace metal fillings
- Discolored teeth
- Strengthen a tooth after a root canal
Dental Crowns: What To Expect
The dental crown procedure is typically a multi step process with minimal discomfort, performed in our Cohoes, NY dentist office. Your procedure will begin with impressions of the area to be treated, which Dr. Marra will use to order your custom fit and color matched crown.
To prepare the tooth for the dental crown, Dr. Marra will then remove a minimal amount of tooth structure for attaching the crown and addressing any dental or cosmetic concerns being treated. A temporary crown may be placed while your new one is being fabricated in a dental lab.
At the next appointment, Dr. Marra will permanently place your new dental restoration, making any necessary adjustments to the tooth surface for a secure, natural looking fit and comfortable result.
Dental crowns will last for many years with proper dental hygiene and routine care. During routine visits, Dr. Marra and his staff will monitor your dental restorations, looking for any signs of wear or damage that can be easily repaired.
