How We Use Dental Crowns
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped jacket of ceramic that fits over your tooth like a helmet to protect it and restore normal function. A few cases where we would suggest a dental crown are:
- Protect damaged teeth or teeth with large fillings that are at high risk for fracturing
- Provide protection and support for a tooth after root canal treatment
- Restore function to a tooth after you get a dental implant
- Improve the aesthetics of a tooth that’s oddly shaped, broken, or severely discolored
Patients at Ohana Dental appreciate our attention to detail that allows us to deliver premium-quality dental crowns that enhance your smile and restore your ability to eat, speak, and smile confidently. Please call our Midland Park, NJ dental office today to arrange a convenient appointment with Dr. Misato or Dr. Venuti.
The Process for Placing a Dental Crown
We can repair a damaged or broken tooth with a dental crown at our Midland Park, NJ dental office in just two office visits.
When we place a dental crown, it adds bulk to the tooth we’re treating. So, our dentists need to remove an equal amount of your tooth’s structure so your new crown blends in with surrounding teeth.
The next step is to take comfortable digital impressions of your teeth that we use to create a virtual model. We use this model to create a temporary dental crown, and a custom dental lab uses it to fabricate your new restoration.
The process for getting a dental crown is a little faster with digital dentistry, and we should get your new crown back from the dental lab in less than two weeks.
We’ll have you return to Ohana Dental, so our dentists can remove the temporary crown, adjust your new dental crown for proper fit, and cement it securely in place. You will leave our office with your beautiful new restoration and a confident, healthy smile.
Extend the Lifespan of Your Dental Crown
To protect your overall oral health and improve the look of your smile, we use only the highest quality materials for all our dental crowns in Midland Park, NJ.
Getting the most longevity from your dental crown starts with conscientious brushing and flossing at home. The crown itself will not get a cavity, but the tooth beneath it can, and you can also develop gum disease.
Backing up your at-home efforts with routine dental exams and cleanings will ensure that all your teeth are as healthy as possible. During these appointments, our dentists will also check the condition of the crown itself and make sure it’s in good condition.
If you care for your restoration properly and maintain routine visits for exams and cleanings, your crown may last 15 years or longer. Please call Ohana Dental of Bergen County if it's time for your next dental exam and cleaning.
Dental Bridges Replace Missing Teeth
If you want to avoid problems like gum recession, jaw bone deterioration, and even further tooth loss, replacing missing teeth as soon as possible is essential. While we are happy to offer advanced options like dental implants, dental bridges continue to be a dependable tooth replacement for many people.
Please call our Midland Park dental office to schedule an appointment with Dr. Venuti or Dr. Fukuda if you are considering a dental bridge to replace missing teeth.
Getting a New Dental Bridge
A dental bridge is a type of prosthetic that literally “bridges” the gap left behind when you lose a tooth. We customize an artificial tooth called a pontic, which sits in the open space and is suspended on either side by crowns attached to healthy adjacent teeth.
We start by taking comfortable digital impressions of your teeth. Next, we send the information to an outside lab where skilled technicians fabricate your customized bridge using premium materials. In about two weeks when your bridge is ready, you return to our office so we can cement it securely in place.
Secure Your Bridge with Dental Implants
If you have two or more missing teeth in the same area of your mouth, using one or more dental implants can hold it securely in place. Our dentists place the implants in your jaw and attach the bridge to it.
The implant gives you the confidence of knowing that the prosthetic is secure, but using implants is also a healthier alternative. Since we anchor the implants in your jaw during an in-office surgical procedure, we don't need to alter adjacent teeth for support as we would do with a bridge. It’s always better for your oral health to keep the structure of your teeth intact for as long as possible.
Digital X-Rays for Accurate Diagnosis
Dental x-rays are an invaluable diagnostic tool. Without them, we wouldn’t know what’s happening inside your tooth where most dental problems start. Aside from being a valuable educational and diagnostic tool, we store digital x-rays in your patient history where we can easily access them to monitor conditions or to share with specialists and insurance companies.
Intraoral Cameras Educate You
A picture is worth a thousand words, and thanks to modern technology, gone are the days when you have to guess what your dentist sees when they examine your mouth. As our doctors direct a pen-sized camera over your teeth, we review and explain what we see and why treatment is necessary.
Comfortable Digital Impressions
Instead of messy paste impressions, our digital scanner captures highly accurate, detailed impressions of your teeth. We use digital impressions to produce high-quality restorations like traditional crowns and bridges and onlays and inlays.
Laser Dentistry Improves Comfort and Results
Laser dentistry is safer, faster, and less invasive than certain traditional dental techniques. Using dental lasers, we perform many procedures efficiently, comfortably, and with less recovery time.
