What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a custom, tooth-shaped “cap” that gets placed over the entire visible portion of a tooth (everything above the gum line). Its purpose is to strengthen the tooth, renewing both its form and function. Crowns can be made out of various materials, including metals, porcelain-fused-to-metal, and all-porcelain. Our team often recommends porcelain crowns due to their beautiful appearance.

The Process of Getting a Dental Crown

The process of getting a dental crown in Hoboken usually requires at least two appointments. During your first appointment, Dr. Graffeo will prepare the tooth by removing a portion of its enamel. It’s a crucial step to ensure the crown will not interfere with your bite or look unnatural in your mouth. Once that’s done, we’ll take some impressions, which will serve as the basis for designing your restoration.

To protect your prepared tooth, you’ll wear a temporary crown while a dental laboratory creates your permanent one. When it is ready, you’ll return to our office for the final step in the process. After we double-check the crown’s fit and appearance, we’ll use a special dental cement to secure it on your tooth. Our team will thoroughly explain how to take proper care of your restoration so you can enjoy it for years to come!
