BruxZir dental crowns are highly durable crowns made of solid zirconia and fabricated to look good while also preserving the natural function of teeth. Unlike other dental crown materials, such as gold or porcelain, BruxZir crowns are not prone to chipping or cracking. They also have a lifelike translucency that gives them a natural appearance and makes them ideal for use on visible teeth.
Did You Know?
The strength of a BruxZir crown exceeds the strength requirements set for cemented all-ceramic restorations.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Am I a candidate for a BruxZir crown?
You may be a candidate for a BruxZir crown if you have a tooth that is significantly damaged or decayed but still has an intact root. To determine if you are an ideal candidate for a BruxZir crown, schedule a consultation with our Flushing, Queens dentist at New York Dental Solutions today.
What can I expect when having a BruxZir crown placed at New York Dental Solutions?
The dental crown procedure at New York Dental Solutions is typically completed in two appointments. The first appointment is necessary to prepare the tooth, and the second is necessary to cement the permanent restoration after it has been fabricated by a dental lab. When having a dental crown placed, the treatment area will first be numbed with dental anesthetics. Once the area has been numbed, our dentist will remove any decay left on your tooth and shape it so that it can accommodate the new crown.
You will then have a dental impression taken of your mouth. This information will be sent to a dental lab and used to fabricate your custom-fit BruxZir crown. In the meantime, our dentist will place a temporary cap over the site. When the final restoration is complete, the temporary cap will be removed and replaced with the permanent crown.
What can I expect after having a BruxZir crown placed?
After having a temporary dental crown placed, you will temporarily need to avoid chewing on that side of your mouth in order to prevent the crown from being damaged or dislodged. Once your permanent crown is placed, you can resume your normal routine. You will need to care for your crown by brushing and flossing daily, and scheduling regular dental exams. For the first few days after your new crown is placed, you may experience some minor tooth sensitivity and/or soreness in the gums. This will fade once your mouth has adapted to the new restoration.
