Dental Crowns – West Caldwell, NJ

Rebuilding and Protecting Your Teeth

Our teeth work hard for us. When they sustain damage, Magid Dental Care takes every step possible to repair and save your tooth. A cracked tooth is often caused by biting into something hard, teeth grinding, or trauma due to an accident.

When your tooth cracks, your protective enamel is compromised. This leaves the more delicate parts of your tooth exposed. Dentin is a softer, porous layer of your tooth that houses the area surrounding your nerve. It is more susceptible to decay or even more extensive fractures unless we restore it with a dental crown in West Caldwell.

What Is a Dental Crown?

One of the best ways to protect and save your tooth is by placing a dental crown atop it. They help seal out bacteria and decay and absorb some of the force of chewing to prevent more damage. It covers your remaining tooth structure from your gum line to your chewing surface, much like a protective helmet. The crown holds your tooth together to prevent the splitting that can occur on an unprotected tooth.

What Are Dental Crowns Made From?

We offer dental crowns of varying materials, and the material we recommend will depend on the location of your tooth. For posterior teeth that absorb much of the force from chewing, we use durable tooth-colored crowns that are strong and long lasting, made from zirconia or EMAX.

For anterior teeth, which are visible when you grin, we use crowns that match your smile closely. This will help you feel confident in your appearance. Dr. David Magid will discuss the options that will work best for you after your exam. Together, you can make a decision that supports the health of your smile as well as your aesthetic goals.

Why Save a Broken Tooth with a Dental Crown?

Some patients wonder why we don’t simply extract a damaged tooth. Missing teeth can create a chain reaction of oral health problems. Your teeth and bone have a dependent relationship. Tooth loss often leads to bone loss, which puts your other teeth at risk.

When we remove a tooth, your remaining teeth will shift to fill the gap in your smile. This can cause problems with your bite and create pain and jaw conditions. It is important to save your natural teeth whenever possible because it is the best for your health and your smile. Dental crowns are also more affordable than other tooth replacement options. With proper care, including regular dental visits and diligent oral hygiene, your dental crown should last for many years.
