Dental Crown Frequently Asked Questions

Question: What are crowns?

Answer: Crowns are caps that fit completely over the visible portion of a tooth. A crown preserves the remaining tooth structure while protecting the tooth from further damage or decay.

Question: How do I know if I need a dental crown?

Answer: Crowns are often prescribed to restore teeth injured by trauma or cavities. Symptoms of a tooth suffering from a fracture, chip, or cavity include: tooth sensitivity, toothaches, and pain when biting down or chewing.

Question: Do dental crowns look natural?

Answer: Yes. Each crown will be custom-made to ensure your restoration blends seamlessly with your smile. Our crowns are also made from dental porcelain, which mimics the translucent quality of tooth enamel, providing a completely natural looking restoration.

Question: What are CEREC crowns?

Answer: With CEREC technology, your Livingston NJ cosmetic dentists can now create and place a custom-made crown in a single visit. Previously, the process required two visits and an interim period of wearing a temporary crown. Now, you can obtain a durable and esthetically pleasing crown without straining your already hectic schedule.
