Restore Your Smile with Custom Dental Crowns Made in Our Office
A dental crown offers a trusted and effective way to restore a damaged or badly decayed tooth. At most practices, crowns are manufactured at an outside facility, and patients can sometimes wait weeks to receive them. When you turn to Joseph T. Mormino, DDS to meet your restorative needs, your dental crown will be custom-crafted at our Staten Island, NY, practice thanks to our advanced on-site dental laboratory. Additionally, our on-site lab also allows Dr. Joseph Mormino to provide same-day crowns in many cases. To learn more about the benefits of dental crowns, contact Joseph T. Mormino, DDS today.
An Introduction to Dental Crowns
A crown is a tooth-shaped restoration that is used to provide support and improve a tooth's function and appearance. These trusted restorations have been used on millions of patients, and advances in dentistry have led to the introduction of new materials that allow crowns to look incredibly natural. You may benefit from a crown if you have:
- A cracked or weakened tooth
- Extensive tooth decay that is too large for a dental filling
- Dental erosion that affects the force of your bite
- A tooth with significant cosmetic flaws, such as intrinsic stains
- An unusually shaped or proportionately small tooth
A crown can also be used to replace a missing tooth by attaching to a dental implant, which is a small metal post that acts as an artificial tooth root.
Dr. Mormino, as far as I'm concerned, is the best Dentist I ever had. —Ramon D.
Dental implants restore strength and stability to your bite after tooth loss. These small, titanium posts hold your dental crown, bridge, or denture securely in place so you can eat and speak with confidence. At his Staten Island, NY, office, Dr. Joseph Mormino will design a surgical plan to place your dental implants and create beautiful implant-supported restorations at his on-site laboratory.Watch More Videos <
