Porcelain Crowns in Massapequa Park

With all of the modern advances in dental materials and methods, there’s no reason why patients shouldn’t have highly esthetic porcelain crowns that are durable and long-lasting. Dr. Allan Mohr is pleased to offer the latest in crown technology to his Massapequa Park patients, including all-porcelain crowns that preserve, protect, and enhance the beauty of teeth.

You may have heard a crown referred to as a cap because it fits over a tooth similarly to a baseball cap on a head. A porcelain crown can repair a broken, cracked, or decayed tooth, as well as a tooth that’s been treated with root canal therapy. In the past, crowns were created from dark metals, which detracted from the esthetics of the smile. Now, we have strong, durable porcelains capable of withstanding tremendous biting forces. Dr. Mohr often places all-porcelain crowns, especially on teeth that show when a patient smiles.

When do you need a porcelain crown? We might fit you for a crown if:

The process of fitting and placing your porcelain crown will require at least two visits. Dr. Mohr will conservatively shape the tooth to allow room for the restoration. He takes impressions and photographs and sends them to our laboratory. The laboratory uses precise color-matching techniques to create a porcelain crown that blends seamlessly with neighboring teeth. Dr. Mohr then bonds the crown during a second visit, and you leave our Massapequa Park office with a beautifully restored smile!

If you notice tooth pain or sensitivity – a shock of a cold sensation shoots through your tooth when you bite down or it hurts when exposed to hot or cold temperatures – you may need a crown. These sensations can be a sign of a large crack or cavity in the tooth. Contact our Massapequa Park, NY dental office if you notice these kinds of sensations or have a visibly chipped or broken tooth. Dr. Mohr has studied techniques for beautiful restorative dental care at the prestigious Pankey Institute and Dawson Academy, which translates into beautiful results for your smile repair and replacement. It’s because of these credentials that patients come to us from Massapequa, Seaford, Wantagh, Lindenhurst, Long Island and Farmingdale for porcelain veneers and other cosmetic and restorative dental treatments. Make an appointment with us to experience our high level of dedication, commitment, and excellence.
