When we crown one of our patients at Robert Matlach Dental in Huntington NY, the coronation is a celebration of a stronger smile. The need for a dental crown is usually apparent. Crowns – sometimes called caps – restore a decayed or damaged tooth to its original size, shape, and functionality.
Crowns are sometimes extended down to a tooth’s root surface. Most often, though, they replace the top portion of the tooth – also known as the crown, hence the name of the restoration.
Dental crowns are custom-made for each tooth. Once a crown is cemented permanently into place, they strengthen what was a weakened tooth. They prevent cracked teeth from cracking any further and provide support to teeth that have large, existing fillings.
Dental crowns from Robert Matlach Dental in Huntington NY are an excellent solution for damaged teeth. We have placed them in patients from North Bay, East Smithtown, and South Melville, who also come to our practice for dental implants and complete restorative dentistry. Contact us today!
