Dental Crown FAQs

Dr. Bruce and Richard Corbin offer dental crowns in Oyster Bay, NY. Tooth crowns are dental restorations that can change the shape, color, and size of teeth. They cover teeth like a cap to create a brighter and more uniform smile. Patients with stained, worn, or misshapen teeth benefit from tooth crowns. Even patients with missing teeth receive dental crowns, which are used to cover dental implants and other missing tooth restorations.

  • Look and feel natural
  • Brighten stained teeth
  • Strengthen weakened teeth
  • Replace old dental fillings

  • Cap off dental implants

Please contact Corbin Dental if you want to restore your smile with dental crown treatment. Our dentists take each patient’s dental history and current concerns into account in order to customize their care.

How long do dental crowns last?

Dental crowns typically last for 15 to 30 years. This all depends on how you care for your dental crowns. You should continue to schedule regular dental appointments so our dentists can keep track of your dental health. Remember to also gently brush and floss twice a day. Dental crowns can also be affected by tooth decay and gum disease, so keep up with your oral hygiene routine.

Can you whiten dental crowns?

No, dental crowns are often used as a cosmetic treatment to cover stained teeth. Crowns cannot be whitened with professional whitening treatments because they are made of a porcelain ceramic material. If you have old, discolored crowns, we will recommend a replacement.
