All About Dental Crowns 

A dental crown is a small, thin cap designed to cover the surface of a damaged or decayed tooth to improve the smile’s appearance. Dental crowns are made from one of several materials: porcelain, acrylic resin, gold, or a combination of these. It fits perfectly over the existing tooth, and also looks and feels completely natural. Patients who are good candidates for dental crowns in Manahawkin NJ include those with:

  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Teeth with heavy decay where a filling is no longer possible
  • Cracked and damaged teeth

The Dental Crown Procedure

When you visit your Manahawkin dentist for a dental crown, we will take a digital impression of your tooth to be used for creating your crown. We will begin the procedure by preparing the affected tooth. To create a secure and supportive base for the crown, we will resculpt the tooth and the surrounding area. We will then use our digital image to customize and design a crown for your tooth. This crown will not be immediately placed over your tooth—instead, we will place a temporary crown until your next appointment, when the permanent custom crown will be placed. Our goal is to make the entire process as comfortable as possible for you. You should not feel any discomfort during treatment. 

Dental crowns in Manahawkin NJ are a wonderful long-term solution to restore a patient’s smile and increase their confidence.
