Astoria Dentist Offers Smile Restoration with Dental Crowns


The enamel coating our teeth is the hardest substance in the human body, allowing your teeth to withstand powerful bite forces and harmful bacteria. Unfortunately, this doesn’t mean our teeth aren’t weakened by poor oral hygiene or injury. When this happens, you may require a dental crown to repair your tooth. In today’s blog, your Astoria dentist, Dr. Jeffrey Leibowitz, uses a fun quiz to explain the restorative capabilities of dental crowns.

2. True or False: Crowns address a number of dental issues.

3. True or False: Crowns look natural.

Answer Key

1. True. The crown fits over the visible portion of the tooth, returning the tooth to full function and appearance. The crown will be placed using a powerful bonding agent.

2. True. A crown may be used to restore a tooth suffering from advanced tooth decay. Crowns also repair cracked or chipped teeth. A crown may be prescribed to help replace a tooth in dental implant and bridge procedures. Crowns can even offer a cosmetic solution to permanent teeth stains.

3. True. Your Astoria NY cosmetic dentist can fabricate a crown using a number of lifelike materials, including porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, ceramic, and zirconia. Each crown will be custom-made based on dental impressions to ensure a comfortable fit and that your restoration blends with your smile.
