Dental Crowns

Hassey | Do Duy Dental Associates utilizes dental crowns to properly restore the smile of our patients.

A dental crown is a cap-like structure that is used to cover a damaged or worn-down tooth. A tooth crown is used to restore the size, shape, strength and appearance of an affected tooth. At Hassey | Do Duy Dental Associates, we often recommend crowns as a course of treatment for:

  • Teeth that are visually affected by decay
  • Teeth that are discolored or significantly stained
  • Teeth that have been cracked or chipped
  • Teeth that are irregularly shaped or worn down
  • Teeth that have been altered by interior dental work

Hassey Do Duy utilizes a two-visit approach for dental crowns, in order to ensure that crowns are properly created and securely placed. An impression of a patient’s teeth will be sent to a dental lab to ensure that dental crowns will fit properly, and will closely match the color of existing teeth.

Crown Lengthening

We can use crown lengthening to reshape your gums at the base of the tooth with the crown on it. This procedure aims to preserve your smile, adjust the bone level of your tooth, and ensure the crown adequately protects the tooth itself.

We may need to reshape your crown to prevent food particles from being trapped between the tooth and gum tissue. That way, we can prevent problems from developing with your oral health.

There are several reasons why we may recommend crown lengthening. They include:

  • Your teeth might be too short.
  • There might be oral tooth decay happening below the gum line. 
  • Your tooth might be broken or fractured underneath the gum line. 

We can use crown lengthening to expose healthy enamel, ensure the crown fits appropriately, and ensure oral decay does not lead to tooth extraction. If you would like to learn more about this procedure, reach out to us today! 

Porcelain Restorations

Porcelain and ceramic can be used to create a variety of dental restorations, including crowns. Generally, porcelain restorations are used to fix teeth at the front of your mouth, but we can use them to fix teeth at the back of your mouth as well.

Porcelain can be used to correct chips, cracks, and stains; however, we can also help you fix the problems that may have developed with past porcelain restorations. Our goal is to protect your teeth and preserve your smile. We have a significant amount of experience working with porcelain overlays, and we can provide you with a strong, durable treatment option for various oral health issues.
