What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are known to fix various dental problems, including:

  • Repairing large cavities that are unable to be fixed with a filling
  • Offering strength and protection after a patient has had a root canal
  • Transforming teeth that are oddly shaped
  • Providing a new tooth for patients with dental implants

Made of metal or porcelain, dental crowns have the stability and durability to withstand normal wear and tear, and they’re customized to meet your dental needs. They fit securely over your natural teeth, giving you a beautiful smile.

Who is a Good Candidate?

  • A tooth that has been damaged or injured
  • Teeth that appear smaller or are shaped differently and require a new look

What is the Process for Getting a Dental Crown?

The process for receiving a dental crown will only take a few appointments, but you will need to be patient, as it can take 2 to 3 weeks for the permanent crown to be created and ready for placement.

Your dentist in Fanwood will begin by providing local anesthesia. This will put you in a relaxed state and make it possible for you to feel no pain or discomfort during the procedure. Next, Dr. Osman will begin preparing your tooth by removing any decayed material, if necessary, cleaning it, and filing down the tooth, so the dental crown will fit securely.

Once he has finished reshaping your tooth, it will be necessary for him to take an impression of the tooth. This will serve as a guide or template for the dental lab technician to work from when creating your permanent crown. Dr. Osman will work closely with the lab to ensure the color, size, and shape match the rest of your smile.

After 2-3 weeks, your permanent crown will arrive, and you’ll return to our office to have the temporary crown removed and the permanent one cemented into place.
