When a patient’s tooth needs its size, shape, strength, and appearance restored, Dr. Roy Oyangen in Schenectady, NY at Advanced Aesthetics Dentistry may recommend a dental crown. A dental crown is a cap that is custom made to cover a tooth. This ceramic tooth is shaped and colored to encase & protect the entire visible part of the tooth. porcelain-crown-schenectady

Our dentist may place a dental crown to:

  • Strengthen a weak tooth
  • Hold a cracked tooth together
  • Restore a broken or worn down tooth
  • Cover and support a tooth that does not have much structure left because of a large filling
  • Anchor a dental bridge
  • Shape a tooth or cover a stain
  • Complete a dental implant
  • Improve the appearance of a tooth

Our dentist may place a crown on primary teeth, or baby teeth, to:

  • Save a tooth that is too badly damaged to support a dental filling
  • Protect the teeth of a child that has a high risk of decay
  • Protect the teeth of a child that has trouble with daily dental hygiene

Most of the ceramics we use are custom manufactured by Bonadent!
