benefits of dental crownsBenefits of Dental Crowns

Have you ever given any thought to the remarkable benefits of dental crowns? Drs. Galligan and Villa Dental Studio in Staten Island, NY encourage patients to view crowns as one of the finest options in restorative dentistry. After all, dental crowns are not crowns in the typical sense but more like long-lasting and durable shields used to protect a tooth that has been severely damaged by decay, disease or injury.

As your chosen dentist in Staten Island, we offer a full menu of restorative dentistry options, and our dental crowns specialist may suggest the use of this treatment for such diverse issues as:

  • A tooth with extensive damage or decay that a filling will not mend
  • Removal of an old amalgam filling that required too much of the tooth to have been removed when first placed
  • A tooth treated with a root canal
  • A dental implant
  • A tooth that is deeply discolored and unable to be whitened

Just this list of uses is a good illustration of the many benefits of dental crowns, but it doesn’t actually end there. This is because dental crowns are a treatment that is relatively fast and easy, as well. It will take you only two visits to our office to have your tooth prepared and the new crown placed. After a 24 hour period, your tooth should be ready to perform all of the same tasks it once did before, but will be totally safe, pain free and stable.

Another of the benefits of dental crowns is that each is made specifically for you. Colored to match the surrounding teeth and shaped to fit your original and healthy bite, the crowns are one of the simplest ways to save an adult tooth and eliminate any pain or discomfort. They are also an esthetic option that can allow you to improve the appearance of a tooth while also offering it ongoing protection.
