Dental Crowns on Long Island

Dental Crowns

The Ricco Dental Group provides dental crowns for patients on Long Island, NY. Contact our offices in Massapequa or Plainview, NY to learn more.

What are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are used to cover a tooth that needs extra strength and a durable bite force. Most often these teeth have been injured due to an accident or trauma - or have been subjected to decay and root canal treatment. With the help of a dental crown, also known as a cap, the tooth can be restored.

Dental crowns can be used in various types of dentistry, both as cosmetic and restorative. For instance, they can protect a tooth that has been chipped, fractured, or cracked. They can be used to restore integrity to a tooth that has had a root canal or large cavity. And they are also used as the natural-looking tooth as part of a dental implant.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

Dental procedures that are versatile can be very beneficial. Dental crowns are one of them. Dental crowns:

  • Are long-lasting and very strong
  • Improve the overall appearance of a tooth
  • Replace large fillings
  • Restore the integrity of a tooth after a root canal
  • Reshape teeth

Are You a Good Candidate for Dental Crowns?

Most patients are good candidates for crowns as long as they have a dental issue that warrants their use. This includes those who:

  • Have a large cavity
  • Would like to improve a tooth’s appearance
  • Have had a root canal treatment
  • Are getting dental implants
  • Have a broken or fractured tooth

How real does a dental crown look?

If created properly, dental crowns can look very natural. They are designed to match the color of your surrounding teeth, as well as the contouring, too.

How long do dental crowns last?

On average, dental crowns last about 10-15 years. Though, their longevity is usually directly related to the quality of care they receive. Those cared for exceptionally may last upwards of 20 years while those that are cared for poorly may only last 5.

How do you care for a dental crown?

Brush and floss your teeth at least twice per day. Try to avoid eating sticky and hard foods with your dental crown. Give up bad habits, such as smoking/chewing tobacco, biting on pen caps, and biting fingernails. And, visit your dentist regularly.
