Crowns & Onlays Near Briarcliff Manor, NY
Protect Your Teeth With Advanced Treatment
At The Center For Holistic Dentistry, we offer a variety of dental services including restorative dentistry. Restorative dentistry refers to a procedure that repairs or replaces a tooth. The goal is to restore the function, and often, the appearance of the teeth. Additionally, restorative dentistry procedures can help eliminate pain associated with dental issues and prevent additional issues from occurring. If you have extensive tooth damage or decay, Dr. Lerner may recommend dental crowns and onlays near Briarcliff Manor, NY.
What Is a Dental Crown?
When you have tooth damage or decay that can’t be fixed by a filling, a dental crown is used to replace the natural crown of a tooth, repair the functionality, and restore the size of a tooth. If you are experiencing tooth damage, the strength of your tooth may be compromised. We often see patients who have old mercury fillings that are developing cracks in the enamel and underlying structure because the filling has acted as a wedge in the tooth over time. These teeth are best restored by either an onlay or a crown that reinforces the strength of the tooth by covering a section of the tooth.
Today, we are able to conserve the enamel of your tooth using gold or ceramic onlays. Gold is the traditional material of choice, though, with advances in ceramic and bonding technology, the majority of our patients prefer the cosmetically superior ceramic onlay or crown.
When Do You Need a Dental Crown?
You may need a dental crown if you have any of the following dental conditions:
- Severe discoloration
- Decay or damage
- A crack or chip
- A misaligned bite
- Weakness due to root canal therapy
