Crowns Q & A

What are crowns?

A dental crown or cap is a custom-crafted, protective covering that’s fitted over the visible portion of your tooth, all the way down to the gum line. Crowns are used to provide protection to a damaged tooth and/or correct the appearance of cosmetic flaws. Modern crowns are shaped and color-tinted to match your neighboring teeth. Those created by Dr. Roisman are virtually indistinguishable from patients’ natural teeth.

When is a crown recommended?

Dr. Roisman commonly uses crowns to:

  • Protect a badly damaged tooth
  • Strengthen a tooth that has undergone a root canal
  • Cloak fillings
  • Improve the appearance of a malformed tooth
  • Protect the teeth responsible for the support of a dental bridge
  • Cover a discolored tooth

What is 3D dentistry?

Devoted to delivering patients the latest and most effective dental procedures available, Dr. Roisman uses the ground-breaking iTero® Element scanner. The iTero system creates 3D visuals of your mouth and teeth, without the need to endure messy and uncomfortable impressions to create oral restorations, such as crowns. Digital scanning also provides more accurate details to ensure a better fit than is afforded by old-school impressions. The 3D scanner also means restorations are made quicker with fewer visits to the office. Dr. Roisman was among the very first dentists in Fairfield County to use this breakthrough technology for his patients.

How long will my crown last?

Dr. Roisman only uses the top-most quality crowns, which on average last between 10-15 years. To ensure optimal use from your crown, you should treat it like every other tooth. Brushing, flossing, and regular check-ups are necessary for your crown to continue to provide you with your ideal smile. Dr. Roisman will guide you through proper crown maintenance and with each check-up will make sure your crown is achieving its fullest potential.
