Dr. Spyridon Condos has recommended and installed crowns on many patients’ teeth over the years to address a variety of issues. A crown completely replaces the enamel layer of a tooth with an artificial material, such as gold alloys, base metals, or porcelain. This serves to protect the interior of the tooth, while also restoring its full function and appearance.
Some of common reasons why our dentist may recommend a dental crown in New York, New York, to restore a tooth relate to issues like large cavities, lost fillings, or other advanced forms of tooth decay. If one or more cavities have compromised more enamel than a filling can repair, a crown can be used to restore the entire enamel layer
At the same time, a crown can be used for the cosmetic restoration of a tooth that has suffered a small fracture or chip. This is especially helpful for a tooth that lacks sufficient enamel to mount a dental veneer.
A tooth that has been compromised by advanced decay, a crack, or a fracture that required a root canal to repair the internal structures can also be covered by a crown to fully restore the tooth.
If you have a damaged or decayed tooth or one of your teeth needs significant cosmetic restoration, you should call our office at 212.799.6900 to schedule a consultation.
