A tooth with significant decay or damage isn’t as functional or as beautiful as it should be. That’s why Dr. Alster offers an effective service like porcelain crowns to his patients from Fair Lawn and beyond. Crowns restore the strength and appearance of badly damaged or decayed teeth, improving overall wellbeing and leading to a renewed sense of confidence.
Part of what makes porcelain crowns effective from a restorative standpoint is that your original tooth and the root anchoring it to your jaw are both left where they are. Keeping your root is important for preserving the health of your jaw, as well as surrounding teeth. What’s more, with your tooth in place, your crown is given added strength. Together, your tooth and your root will help you enjoy a complete, strong smile.
But a stronger smile isn’t all you can look forward to with your porcelain crown in place. Thanks to the custom nature of crowns, Dr. Alster can provide you with a finished crown that’s been carefully shaped and shaded to match your surrounding teeth. No one but you and our Fair Lawn team will have to know about your restoration.
Restoring a tooth with a porcelain crown typically takes two visits two complete. On your first visit to our Fair Lawn office, Dr. Alster will assess your needs, prep your tooth, and attach a temporary crown. A temporary crown is meant to protect your tooth and give you some idea of what having a crown will be like. Then, when our lab has finished crafting your specially made restoration, you’ll come back to our office to have your temporary crown removed and your permanent one put in place.
Imagine how a custom-made crown from Dr. Alster could change your life. Thanks to the restored appearance and functionality of your smile, you can face your like with confidence again. What’s more, you can once again enjoy the kind of balanced diet you need to enjoy better health.
If you’re considering a porcelain crown for your smile, call Dr. Alster today for a consultation visit. We offer a full spectrum of family, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry services for our patients from Fair Lawn and beyond.
