My dentist told me I need a crown. I was like, I know, right?
A damaged tooth that cannot function safely needs the stability and protection of a crown. Damage like this occurs when a tooth has been broken, has a large filling, or has undergone root canal therapy. The dental crown covers the part of the tooth above the gum line and restores a tooth back to full functionality.
Crowns can be made from a variety of materials, including stainless steel, gold alloy, porcelain fused to gold, ceramic and resins. Les Belles NYC uses materials that are biocompatible with your body, BPA-free, and free of other toxic substances that could leach into your system over time and negatively affect your health.
Restore Cracked or Damaged Teeth
A tooth that has been compromised by a break of some type needs the protection of a crown to avoid further damage. If a tooth is cracked and we agree it can be saved, a crown is the best protection. A crown will prevent bacteria from getting into the damaged areas and can withstand the pressures of chewing that a cracked tooth cannot tolerate.
Dental Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are used when a full crown is deemed unnecessary. An inlay is used for filling in spaces between the cusps or rounded edges of a tooth. An onlay, sometimes called a partial crown, covers a bigger area of the tooth up to and including the biting surface of the tooth and one or more cusps as well.
Les Belles NYC offers you excellent dental care in support of a healthy lifestyle. A damaged tooth can lead to serious health implications if neglected. We create and place crowns, inlays and onlays with the total health of your body in mind.
