Dental Crowns | Shrewsbury NJ
Most dentistry looks like dentistry. Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We replace existing dental crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth.
Do I need a Dental Crown?
Where damage to a person’s teeth is extreme, and apparently beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain “pasted on gold” crowns to make the smile appear “as new”. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe of dental problems, even permanently replacing missing teeth to offer a complete smile and a functional bite. We are renowned for the quality of our work and the fantastic changes we make for people using this technology. These treatments are used for a long-lasting correction of major dental problems. It is usual for these treatments to last for 20 to 30 years, which is as close to permanent as dental treatment can get.

How long does it take to fit a dental crown?
Fitting a crown requires at least two visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a temporary crown of either plastic or metal.
On the subsequent visit, we will remove the temporary crown and then fit and adjust the final crown. Finally, we will cement the crown into place and you have a new beautiful looking tooth.

What are the capabilities of crowns?
Crown and bridgework is a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases or wear and tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. Material used in these repairs is either high-grade porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold. A higher strength of the porcelain and gold materials is recommended to treat the most serious of dental problems. Where accidental damage has occurred, resulting in lost teeth, or where teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or as the result of old fillings breaking, crowns and/or bridges can be used as a long-term solution.
Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth, which is usually due to hairline cracks in the chewing part of the tooth. Placing crowns on these teeth relieves the pain and allows a return of full dental function for these teeth. In front teeth, older fillings can both weaken the teeth and cause “appearance” problems due to staining or chipping. Porcelain crowns and bridges are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not. In teeth with root canal fillings, crowns can prevent breakage.

Patient Review By Pat B
I have been a patient of Dr. Gelfand for over a year now. I have seen several dentists in the area and this practice is the one I decided to commit to. I myself am a medical professional and I appreciate great attention to detail, perfectionism and strive to deliver the best customer service. The team at this office is patient and knowledgeable. I had whitening done recently and I love the results! I continually get compliments. Cleanings are also detailed and pain free. Next I want to get aligners. I would not trust anyone else.

I had a lot of dental work done in the past. It came to a point when I just thought it wasn't meant for me to have a nice smile. Dr. G had been telling me for a while that all it would take was a little more work at home and a little "dental magic" to get my smile back. After holding up my end of the bargain, Dr. Gelfand came through just like he said he would. I was terrified to jump in but I am so happy i trusted him. I can not remember smiling this much in my life.

Patient Review By Don B
Just had my first appointment with my new dentist! I had been looking for a Shrewsbury dentist for a long time. I had narrowed my search but in the end, was kinda wowed by the reviews and recommendations of friends that Dr. Gelfand had. So this practice was my first choice, and then a broken molar made the decision urgent. These folks didn't know me from spam, and yet scheduled an immediate appointment. They spent time with me, the doctor explained a smart course of action and even gave me costs in advance for work that should be done. As I left, the doctor and the staff assured me that I could reach them for help even over the weekend if needed. I was really impressed.
