Do you have a tooth that needs to be reshaped, strengthened, and beautified? If so, we give you the option of placing a dental crown in Massapequa, New York, that will restore your tooth and give you the appearance you are looking for.

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over the tooth to make the necessary modifications to your smile. The crown can do many things to improve your look and self-confidence, which include:

• Protecting a weak tooth from breaking or cracking
• Restoring a broken or cracked tooth
• Covering a misshaped tooth
• Disguising a severely discolored tooth
• Covering a dental implant
• Making a cosmetic alteration

This is also a great option for children when they have a severely damaged tooth that cannot hold a cavity. It is also beneficial when you need to protect your child from infection and decay because they struggle taking good care of their teeth.

The process of placing a dental crown involves Dr. Nicholas Manos first examining and preparing the tooth. Your dentist will numb the tooth with a local anesthetic and shave a portion of the tooth down to allow room for the crown. Once the tooth is shaved, he will make impressions of your tooth and will send them to a dental laboratory to be made for you. Your second visit will involve your dentist checking and adjusting the crown to your bite. When he finds the perfect fit, it will be permanently cemented into place.
