Dental CrownsIf you have a weakened smile because of damaged, broken teeth, you can improve it! If you have a smile that has lost its beauty and appeal, you can enhance it. The answer to achieving a stronger, more beautiful smile is dental crowns. Dental crowns are made of materials that are strong and beautiful, to give you the smile you deserve.

Dr. Eugene Porcelli at Garden City Family Dental in Garden City, New York offers a full range of restorative, cosmetic, and preventive services including dental crowns to make you proud of your smile.

If you have lost a large amount of tooth structure due to decay, dental trauma, or other causes, don’t worry. Dental crowns can restore your full chewing ability, so you can enjoy the foods you love again.

A dental crown strengthens your damaged tooth by covering the entire visible surface of your tooth above the gumline. The crown provides a strong, protective shield, so when you bite down, your tooth won’t fracture or break. You don’t have to worry about losing more vital tooth structure.

Dental crowns aren’t just about strength; they can also add to the beauty of your smile. That’s because modern crown materials like porcelain, resist stains. Porcelain can also be matched closely to the color of your existing teeth, so your new crown will blend with your smile, looking completely natural. Porcelain is also light-reflective and closely mimics the look of natural tooth enamel. In fact, porcelain is one of the most popular choices for a dental crown material.

You can also choose porcelain which has been fused to a metal underlay, known as a PFM crown. These crowns combine the strength of metal with the beauty of porcelain, to give you the best of both worlds. These crowns are an excellent choice for back teeth where you need extra strength.

You need to discover for yourself how dental crowns can improve your smile. To find out more about what dental crowns can do for you, call Dr. Eugene Porcelli at Garden City Family Dental in Garden City, New York today!

When tooth loss happens, either as a result of severe tooth decay, gum disease, or an accident, dental crowns are one of the quickest anddental implants, dental crowns most effective restorations available. Crowns are a great option for restoring the cosmetic appearance of your smile, as well as function so that you can continue to eat properly and maintain a normal quality of life. In order to replace a missing tooth, a traditional stand-alone crown needs to be attached to a dental bridge, which consists of two crowns on either side to be fit over the remaining teeth (known as abutment teeth) to secure the crown in place. Implant crowns work a little differently in that the implant replaces the root of the missing tooth, to which the crown is then attached, no need for a bridge. Dr. Eugene Porcelli, a family dentist in Garden City, NY, offers implant crowns for his patients.

Despite the fact that the root of a tooth isn't visible, it plays an important role in oral health. Once it is gone, the surrounding bone tissue begins to erode. An implant helps to generate healthy new bone tissue, and securely anchors the crown in place for a permanent and secure restoration. Implants are made of biocompatible titanium and are surgically placed in the jaw. Once it heals, the cosmetic crown is attached.

Implant crowns are available for healthy adults with enough bone density in the jaw to support the implant. With rigorous oral hygiene and follow up care with the dentist, implant crowns have a very high success rate, and can support anywhere from a single tooth, to a set of dentures with just a few implants.
