Dental Crowns – Jersey City, NJ
Rebuild Your Smile’s Health & Confidence
A dental crown is one of the most common restorative treatments available in dentistry. This tooth-shaped “cap” is placed over a damaged tooth and helps rebuild its original size, shape, strength, and cosmetic appearance. Once they’ve been securely cemented in place, a quality dental crown will enclose the entire visible outline of the tooth above the patient’s gum line. If you’re in need of dental crowns in Jersey City, NJ, trust in the dentistry team and dentist at AV Dental Associates of Jersey City to exceed expectations.

Do I Need Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns may be a necessary restorative dentistry solution in the following situations:
- To protect a weak or decayed tooth from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth
- To restore a broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down
- To secure a dental bridge
- To cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t a lot of viable dental structure left
- To cover unattractive, misshapen or severely discolored teeth
- To enclose a dental implant
- To make a cosmetic modification
Crowns are ideal for situations where fractures have occurred in teeth and a filling just isn’t adequate enough to correct the problem. Fillings are placed within affected teeth, while crowns are designed to cover them. This restorative solution can be crafted from a variety of materials, from aesthetic porcelain/ceramic to traditional gold. Bridges are a larger version and are often used to replace missing teeth in a row as a more permanent alternative to dentures.
Root Canals & Dental Crowns
When we perform root canal therapy to save a damaged tooth, crowns are usually placed as the final touch in order to protect the weakened dental structure. Faulty or damaged dental implants may also be restored with crowns over time. Crowns can even be a purely cosmetic option if the patient wishes to change the appearance of one of their teeth and other cosmetic services won’t provide their desired look.
