DENTAL CROWNS

Dental Crowns are a type of dental restoration that restore a broken, cracked, or cavitated tooth back to its shape and function. Think of it is a "cap" that goes over your tooth that looks and feels like your tooth. Crowns are necessary for teeth that have large cavities, broken teeth, cracked teeth, or replacement of old and broken large silver and white fillings. Dental crowns can be made out of porcelain, gold, or porcelain fused to metal. Dr. Moran's preference is porcelain crowns as it is an excellent and strong material that can still create excellent esthetic outcomes. 

The crown builds back up the tooth to its original shape and size and prevents it from breaking further. We make custom fit, lab fabricated, porcelain crowns that match your teeth in shade, shape, and size. We ensure that every crown we make and place fits perfectly and will last in your mouth for at least 5 years.

When do you need a crown?

If you are unsure which case are you, the best thing to do is schedule your first appointment so Dr. Moran can fix your tooth!

  • Why do I need to floss?
    Brushing cleans all surfaces of your teeth EXCEPT the surfaces in between your teeth. The only thing that cleans between your teeth is flossing. If you don’t floss at least once a day, plaque and bacteria build up between your teeth and into your gums, causing a higher risk for you to get cavities in between your teeth and gum disease.
  • How often should you floss your teeth?
    Everyday! ​We only ask for you to floss once a day. It takes just 2 extra minutes of your day. It doesn’t matter when or where you floss as long as you floss once a day.
  • How do I know if my gums are healthy?
    Just remember that healthy gums don’t bleed. If your’re asking yourself why your gums bleed a lot, this indicates the presence of gingivitis. When you have gingivitis, your gums bleed when you brush or floss your teeth, this means that you’re gums are inflamed. ​If you brush twice a day, floss once a day, and see us at least every 6 months, it gives you a better chance of having healthy gums.
  • Which toothbrush is better, electric or manual toothbrushes?"
    Both are good. We do however, recommend an electric toothbrush as the vibrating and rotating bristles allow for a more thorough cleaning without extra scrubbing motions. Sonicare and Oral B are both the leading brands in electric toothbrushes.
  • What can cause my gums to recede?
    There are many factors that can cause gum recession, including brushing too hard, your bite (malocclusion), misalignment of your teeth, chronic inflammation of your gums, and a genetic susceptibility to gum recession. We will help you do whatever it takes to treat your gum recession by having our specialist perform gum grafts and/or prevent further recession by determining and eliminating factors that is causing the recession.
