Dental Crowns in Oyster Bay
Dental crowns are permanent caps that protect damaged teeth. Crowns look, feel, and function like natural teeth, making it easier to enjoy life again. Made of ceramic, metal, or a combination of the two, we use crowns to cover teeth damaged by breakage, decay, or a root canal procedure. Ceramic is the most popular type of crown because it looks the most like a natural tooth and can match the color of your other teeth.
How Dental Crowns Work
At Corbin Dental at Oyster Bay, we use a standard procedure to install dental crowns in just two visits.
Before we start, we’ll take an impression of your teeth and send it to a dental laboratory. At the same appointment, our dental professionals will work with you to choose the best color for your crowns, which have many natural color effects to ensure the closest match possible.
2. The Procedure
Installing dental crowns requires gently filing down your tooth so that the crown will fit over that area and not interfere with surrounding teeth. We’ll remove any decay, then cover your newly cleaned tooth with a temporary crown to keep it safe. Until we schedule you for your permanent crowns, follow all the guidance from your dentist to ensure the safety of your temporary crowns.
Most dental crowns take one to three weeks for our lab to manufacture. Once we receive your completed crown, you’ll return to have the temporary one removed and the new permanent one put in.
During the days after your dental crown procedure, you may feel some slight pain as your mouth adjusts to the new tooth. Very few patients have allergic reactions to crowns, but if we place a metal crown and you have a negative reaction to it, we can replace it with ceramic.
