From our Family to Yours, we hope and pray that everyone in your life is healthy and feeling well. We are pleased to announce the Full Re-Opening of our practice! As we begin to return to our normal lives, our practice is now open for all dental procedures, not just emergent ones. Throughout this crisis, we have remained open to care for all emergency patients and we look forward to resuming all aspects of dental care. Lack of oral health has been directly linked to more serious health issues and cannot be overlooked. It is important to resume dental cleanings and to address any dental issues that have been put off during this crisis. Our staff is fully prepared to continue to protect our Patients from not only Covid-19 but from all viral exposure as the Infection Control and Anti-viral protocols that we have practiced for 30 years far exceed industry standards. To all our patients that had appointments cancelled due to this health crisis, we will be contacting you to reschedule those appointments. As always you can reach us at 718-876-9100 to schedule an appointment on your own or with any questions you may have. As always, our office and lab continue to welcome all new patients and emergencies if your current dental office is not available We look forward to seeing each of you again soon! All the best, Dr. Mormino, Lauren, Lisa, Anne Marie, Mary, Gladys, Annie & MaryEllen

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.

Crown Fabrication and Placement

Receiving a traditional crown is a two-step process. During your first appointment, Dr. Mormino will numb the area before gently removing damaged or decayed portions of your tooth. Next, he will reshape the tooth in order to create a strong base for your restoration. To complete this first appointment, we will take impressions of the reshaped tooth, which will be used by our lab technicians to custom-craft your dental crown. We can provide a temporary crown for you to wear in between appointments.

Once our lab has created your crown, you will return to our practice to complete treatment. Dr. Mormino will take the time to ensure that your crown fits correctly and looks natural. Since we have an on-site lab, we can make adjustments to your restoration, if needed, here in our office. The crown will be bonded securely in place, instantly improving the appearance of your smile and returning balance to your bite. With proper care, your new crown can last for 15 years or longer.

Why Receive Crowns at Joseph T. Mormino, DDS?

Having an advanced dental laboratory directly on site offers a wide range of benefits to our patients and truly distinguishes our practice. When planning your crown, Dr. Mormino and our dental technicians will collaborate directly to ensure your restoration will blend flawlessly with surrounding teeth. In addition, our on-site lab can allow us to complete an entire crowning procedure on the same day, which is not possible at many other practices.

Dental Implants

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.
