Your tooth enamel is strong, even stronger than bone. Despite this, tooth enamel remains vulnerable to decay or injury. Even for teeth suffering from severe tooth decay, a dental procedure exists to restore and preserve your smile. In today’s blog, Livingston cosmetic dentists, Drs. David and Gary Silverstrom, explain how dental crowns provide durable, aesthetically pleasing dental restoration.


What Are Dental Crowns?


Crowns are essentially caps that cover the entire visible portion of a tooth. With crowns, your teeth are protected from further degradation. This procedure also allows much of the natural tooth structure to remain intact, and prevents the need for tooth extraction.


Dental crowns serve a variety of purposes. In addition to repairing damage from trauma or cavities, crowns guard teeth after root canal therapy, secure dental bridges, and attach to dental implants procedures.Crowns offer cosmetic dental restoration, instantly beautifying teeth by erasing permanent stains and embarrassing discoloration.


One-Visit Crowns


With the use of innovative CEREC technology, your Livingston cosmetic dentists can place crowns in a single visit. The entire process, including fabricating and securing your custom-madecrown, can be completed in one appointment. In some instances, patients receive their new CEREC crowns in about an hour.


Smile Restoration


At The Silverstrom Group, Drs. David and Gary Silverstrom provide convenience and an artistic touch to the application of dental crowns. All crowns are fabricated in an on-site lab, for quality control and quicker service. The first step in receiving your newcrown involves preparation of the effected tooth. Any remnants of decay are removed, and the surface is altered to make room for the crown.


An impression of your bite is taken and sent to our lab. Here, experts will create your custom-fittedcrown based on the impression and Drs. David or Gary Silverstron’s exact specifications. Once completed, one of your Livingston dentists will check the fit to ensure the crown will return your tooth to optimal function. The crown will then be shaded to blend seamlessly with your smile. Drs. David or Gary Silverstrom will place the crown using a powerful adhesive, giving you a long-lasting and natural-looking restoration.
