Our team includes 16 cosmetic dentists, specialists and lab ceramists in one high-end midtown Manhattan office. Particularly we focus on placing crowns on teeth that experience a lot of cavities. Accordingly we can help treat crowns that have tooth decay. In brief we call this tooth decay crown dentistry. We offer intelligent and honest diagnosis based upon 31+ years of experience. As a result we are able to offer quick and comfortable care. We use the finest materials and top labs.

Before and after tooth decay crown pictures
Eight white bonded dental fillings. Six teeth crowns caps. Five root canals. Gum therapy. Teeth whitening. Total treatment time: Nine days. The words, crown and cap, mean the same thing; a dental crown and tooth crown also mean the same thing. A fixed dental bridge, prosthesis or bridgework, typically means more than one crown – and that they are connected together as one piece. The word fixed typically means permanently cemented and not removable by the patient. Some patients incorrectly refer to their removable denture as a bridge.
Tooth decay crown treatment for tooth pain
This patient presents with tooth pain from tooth decay
Tooth decay removal is shown in the pictures. This tooth is being prepared for root canal therapy and a dental crown (cap). Before and after tooth preparation is shown.
Tooth decay crown treatment of an upper molar
1) Initial radiograph. 2) X-ray following extraction of tooth #15 and root canal therapy on tooth #14. Note how far the cavity goes below the gum. 3) Tooth preparation following root canal therapy and the removal of the distal decay. 4) Final tooth preparation of the composite crown build-up. Note how the distal tooth preparation extends gingivally beyond the composite to tooth.
Tooth decay removal should occur before gum surgery
Dental caries removal, i.e. tooth decay treatment, around a molar. This decay should be removed before referring the patient for crown lengthening periodontal gum surgery. This is so the periodontist will know how much osseous reduction, i.e. bone removal, is necessary to reestablish the biologic width.
Cracks are sometimes found beneath deep silver fillings
It seems that large silver fillings can sometimes act as a wedge separating buccal and lingual cusps. These cracks can be filled with tooth decay that should be removed. It is important to remove the entire visible crack especially if it extends to the outer tooth surface. A full coverage restoration is usually indicated as a replacement; dental bonding would be a second choice to help reduce progression of the crack because it glues to the side walls of the tooth.
Tooth decay crown treatment including root canal
Crown build-up in an upper premolar following root canal therapy and crown lengthening periodontal surgery. There was adequate remaining tooth structure after removal of tooth decay so a cast post and core was not necessary. Consider drilling into the root canal orifices to add mechanical retention for the dental bonding core.
Root canal pain from tooth decay
This patient presented with tooth pain on her lower right side. Root canal therapy, crown build-up and dental crown preparation was performed for both the molar and premolar. The premolar is the focus in this series of photos.
Tooth pain that needs tooth decay crown treatment
This patient presented in dental pain in her lower right jaw. Root canal therapy, crown build-up and tooth crown preparation was performed for both the molar and premolar. The molar is the focus in this series of photos.
There is recurrent decay under the silver filling
Note that buccal tooth decay removal is frequently more sensitive post-op than occlusal decay. Decay is still present. Root canal and a dental crown is the most predictable treatment for this big tooth cavity.

An impacted wisdom tooth damages the healthy adjacent tooth that requires tooth decay crown treatment
A large carious lesion, dental cavity, was created by the wisdom tooth growing into it. The patient did not feel any pain.
Treatment: Root canal and dental crown – the crown covers the site where tooth decay was removed.
Tooth decay under a silver filling
The initial dental crown preparation – drilling – has the shoulder for the endodontic clamp. Then the final preparation should have a bevel or a chamfer finish line.

Dental crowns on every tooth. Root canal therapy was performed on every tooth. Avoiding potential painful root canal emergencies with preventive endodontics should be considered and offered to patients when performing reconstructions.
No emergencies means happier patients.
