Dental Crowns in Hillsborough, NJ

The pain of missing or broken teeth can be unbearable. To stop the pain and prevent further damage, we gently restore your smile with dental crowns. We have all the information you’ll need to get a dental crown professionally placed by our local Hillsborough Township resident and dental expert, Dr. Awad.

What is Dental Crown?

Dental crowns are essentially caps that are placed over a damaged tooth to restore its function and appearance. They can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain, metal, and ceramic, and are custom-fitted to each individual tooth.

Why Might You Need a Dental Crown?

There are many reasons why a dental crown might be necessary. Some of the most common reasons include:

  • To protect a weak or damaged tooth from further decay or damage.
  • To restore a tooth that has been severely worn down.
  • To cover a tooth that has undergone a root canal procedure.
  • To anchor a dental bridge in place.
  • To cover a discolored or misshapen tooth.


The Benefits of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns offer a number of benefits for patients, including:

  • Restored functionality: A dental crown can help to improve the strength and durability of a damaged tooth, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
  • Enhanced appearance: Crowns are designed to match the natural color and shape of your existing teeth, so they can help to improve the overall appearance of your smile.
  • Long-lasting results: With proper care and maintenance, a dental crown can last for many years, providing a durable and reliable solution for a damaged or discolored tooth.


The Dental Crown Procedure

At Hillsborough Prime Dental, we use the latest dental technology to ensure a comfortable and efficient experience for our patients. The dental crown procedure typically involves the following steps:

  1. Consultation and Evaluation: Before the crown can be placed, our team will evaluate your tooth to determine the best course of action. We may take X-rays or impressions of your teeth to create a custom-fitted crown.

  2. Preparation: To prepare the tooth for the crown, we will remove any decayed or damaged material and shape the tooth to ensure a proper fit.

  3. Impression: We will take an impression of the prepared tooth to create a custom-fitted crown that matches the size, shape, and color of your existing teeth.

  4. Temporary Crown: While your permanent crown is being crafted, we will place a temporary crown over the tooth to protect it and provide a temporary solution.

  5. Placement: Once your permanent crown is ready, we will remove the temporary crown and place the new crown over the prepared tooth. We will make any necessary adjustments to ensure a comfortable fit.

  6. Follow-Up: After the crown is placed, we will provide you with instructions for proper care and maintenance. We may also schedule a follow-up appointment to ensure that the crown is functioning properly and there are no issues.


We are dedicated to providing our patients with the best possible care and solutions for their dental needs. If you are in need of a dental crown, contact us today to schedule a consultation and learn more about our services.

Most Popular Questions

Approximately 1-2 hours are needed for the procedure, similar to a filling. First, Dr.Awad cleans and shapes the tooth before placing a temporary crown. The following appointment is when she switches out the temporary for the permanent crown.

The procedure of getting a crown is similar to getting a filling, both in terms of time and comfort. In order to create the final crown, an impression is taken after the decay has been removed and the tooth has been reduced in size. The final crown will be placed at a second appointment. In the meantime, a temporary tooth is placed to protect the reduced tooth and allow for normal function.

If you are looking to replace your tooth, crowns offer many benefits. They can be used as a permanent replacement for teeth that have been lost due to decay or injury; they also look great! Unlike traditional bridges which require metal plates and pins held together with resin (a big technique), our custom-made porcelain ones provide patients more comfort throughout the process while still giving them lasting impressions like never before.

It's not. Local anesthesia is used to numb the area as with a filling and most dental procedures. When the anesthesia wears off, you may experience some discomfort, but nothing that can't be controlled with over-the-counter pain medications. Your comfort is of utmost importance to us, and we want to ensure you are comfortable during your visit.

You should wait about 30 minutes after your treatment before eating or drinking anything hard and/or sticky that might pull at the crown as cement sets. We recommend 24 hours to ensure a strong bond between you and our specialists work on making sure everything is perfect!

Dental crowns are a long-lasting solution to your tooth problems. We've seen them last up until 20 years!
