A dental crown is one of the best ways to protect and restore a weak, decayed, or damaged tooth. Crowns can also conceal a discolored tooth, leaving you with a dazzling, white smile. Because dental crowns enclose the entire tooth, they protect the natural tooth’s structure, so you don’t have to get your natural tooth pulled or treated with an invasive procedure.
Your smile’s health is our highest priority. However, we also know how important it is to have a smile that looks and feels fantastic. That’s why Dr. Huang proudly offers beautiful dental crowns in Glenmont, NY.
Why Do I Need a Dental Crown?
Crowns are like little hard hats that your dentist places over the visible part of the tooth. They cover teeth fully, down to the gumline, and restore the tooth’s function and appearance.
A dental crown can do all of the following:
- Repair a severely decayed tooth that a filling can't repair
- Strengthen a tooth after a root canal or other surgery
- Protect a filling from breaking
- Improve the shape and appearance of uneven teeth
- Close gaps between teeth
- Conceal severely discolored or stained teeth

Periodontal Treatment and Dental Crowns
Periodontal (gum) disease can occur for many reasons, according to the American Academy of Periodontology, such as aging, systemic diseases, poor oral hygiene, and genetics, and more. Luckily, with periodontal treatment at our dental office, you can control the disease and enjoy a beautiful, functional smile with dental crowns. For example, those who have lost teeth due to gum disease shouldn’t have to worry about having a great smile.
Many times, dental crowns help us support patients in their journey toward a healthier smile. For example, those with periodontal disease may consider getting crowns on implants or bridges to remedy their tooth loss. Dental crowns attached to implants or bridges can replace one, multiple, or complete sets of teeth.
It’s also important to note that periodontal treatment does not typically interfere with the placement of crowns. We also encourage you to speak to your dentist in more detail about your individual periodontal health and the potential need for dental crowns.
