Tooth damage and decay can cause painful side effects, and if not treated, will severely compromise your oral health.
Dr. Louis Buono can design and place a custom dental crown to protect your teeth and restore their appearance.
Why should you undergo dental crown treatment at our Long Island, NY, practice?
What Are Dental Crowns?
A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a healthy tooth after the damaged portion has been removed. Crowns are often the final step in a root canal treatment. If you have lost teeth, we can also secure a crown to a dental implant to fill the gaps in your smile. We can craft your restoration from several different materials including porcelain, resin, and ceramic to best suit your budget and aesthetic goals.
Find Relief Soon With a Temporary Crown
After breaking a tooth or dealing with painful decay, you may feel stuck in a nerve-wracking situation. Luckily, relief is on the way. Our dentist can place a temporary crown as you wait for your natural-looking permanent crown.
Dental Crown Placement Means an End to Your Stress

How Long Do Crowns Usually Last?
Most crowns have a lifespan of about seven to ten years. This can be extended though with good dental hygiene and proper care. That dedicated care can also prevent decay or an infection in the root canal of a tooth, so you shouldn't require further treatment other than replacing your crown due to wear and tear.
Maintaining Your Dental Crown
Avoid Unnecessary Pressure
It is important to avoid extremely hard or chewy foods that might dislodge your crack the restoration. Refrain from grinding your teeth or opening packages with your mouth, since a dental crown can wear down just like natural tooth enamel.
Practice Good Oral Hygiene
Brush your teeth twice daily and floss regularly, especially around your crown treated tooth. Rather than pulling the floss up and down, the floss should be pulled front to back to prevent dislodging the crown.
Attend Regular Check-Ups
Visit our Long Island, NY, practice bi-annually for deep cleaning and check-up. The dentist will be able to check the status of your crown and make sure your natural tooth is still properly protected and healthy.
