They can examine and evaluate each patient’s oral health situation to determine whether they are a viable treatment procedure for them.

Restore Your Smile with Crowns and Bridges

Crowns are used to strengthen damaged, chipped or cracked teeth in the mouth so that they can function like they did before. They are custom designed to improve the appearance of the tooth whether shape, contour or even color. They can even be used with bridges to shorten the space of missing teeth. Two crowns are used on either side of the missing tooth. These abutment teeth are supports for the crown placed in between them, this is known as a bridge. Our professional cosmetic dentists can offer crowns and bridges to Yonkers patients of all ages.

A crown is generally designed and sent out to a dental laboratory. Each crown is custom designed for each patient. A temporary crown is placed until the restoration is returned to the dental office for placement in about two weeks. Any decay on the tooth or teeth being treated will be removed before the crown is placed too.
