Advantages of Prompt Dental Crown Treatment
Dental crown treatment should eliminate the painful side effects of a damaged tooth including swollen gums, oral sensitivity, and pain when you eat and drink. Once you take care of infection and decay, you can get back to enjoying life with a healthy smile.
Avoid Costly Procedures
If you don't treat tooth decay, the infection can spread and lead to even more serious oral health conditions. A dental crown can correct the problem while it's still manageable, so you can avoid complicated and expensive restorative work.
Save Your Tooth
Treatment will not only save you money in the long run but can also save your natural tooth. A crown encases your tooth in a protective shell, preventing future damage and restoring strength and function to your smile.

How Do I Know If I Need a Crown?
There are some common symptoms that indicate you may need a dental crown. If you notice your tooth has become discolored, sensitive to hot and cold temperatures, or inflamed at the gums, chances are you have a problem that needs professional attention.
However, some patients do not display any apparent side effects and have tooth damage without even knowing it. The best way to find out if you need restorative dentistry is to get checked out by the dentist as soon as possible.
Beautiful, Lasting Results
"Absolutely the best dentist I have ever had!!!" Hear from Our Patients
Everyone I came into contact with at RDA was friendly and welcoming. Dr. Samani is absolutely the best dentist I have ever had !!! He is soft spoken, patient and has the most genuine personality . He explains everything so you know exactly what to expect... I had alot of unusual issues with my teeth and also have a gag reflex, but with his patience, I got through my procedures successfully. I am so happy I found him. If you are looking for an awesome dentist, a true professional, I highly recommend Dr. Samani.View on Google
Everyone was wearing protective clothing including hair coverings. The treatment areas were protected with heavy plastic coverings. Everything was wiped down....everything. Each treatment area also had its own air filter machine. I was given a special mouth rinse to kill germs. I have been to various doctor offices, some located in hospitals since Covid, and I have not seen anything like the preventive measures taken at Ridgewood Dental. Do not be afraid to see the dentist. It is probably the cleanest place in the tri-state area. They are not fooling around.View on Google
Customizing Your Crown
Recent advancements in materials and placement techniques have made dental crowns stronger and more natural-looking than ever before. Ridgewood Dental Associates crafts all our crowns from the highest quality materials including IPS e.max®, zirconia, porcelain, and gold. Some materials like porcelain are incredibly life-like, mimicking the translucency and shine of a natural tooth. Other types, such as zirconia and porcelain fused to gold crowns, provide additional strength and are great for restoring molars. During your consultation, we will go over your options and help you select the best dental crown for your smile.
Timeline for a Traditional Dental Crown
We craft all our crowns from the highest quality materials including IPS e.max, zirconia, porcelain, and gold.
Treatment for an implant-supported crown is more complex than a traditional crown since we are also replacing the missing tooth root with a dental implant. However, an implant-supported crown offers many advantages that traditional dental bridges cannot. By restoring the underlying tooth root, a dental implant can prevent gum recession, bone loss, and other oral conditions. Furthermore, the implant provides incredible stability and should feel just like a natural tooth. Patients from Bergen County, NJ, and beyond can ask about implant-supported crowns at their next appointment to find out if they qualify for this revolutionary treatment.

My experience at RDA surpassed exceptional including the work of the welcoming, friendly, patient, professional support staff. Dr. Joung provided sensitivity, patience, and the highest level of expertise while working with me to create a restoration that met my absolute approval. Dentists and professional staff constantly tell me that they are unable to identify which tooth was restored following the implant. I am forever grateful to Dr. Joung and recommend him highly without reservation.View on Google
My experiences at Ridgewood Dental Associates have all been very positive. I can trust Dr. Samani to give me a well-informed and honest opinion on any dental issues (such as whether or not it's necessary to do certain surgical procedures). Their staff have made normally uncomfortable procedures much more tolerable by acting positive and relaxed and by being sensitive to my comfort levels. They are also very considerate of your time and do not keep you waiting. For these reasons, I highly recommend RDA to anyone in the area.View on Google
How Long Does a Dental Crown Last?
Your permanent dental crown is custom-made to fit snugly around your tooth and should last for 10 years, if not longer. These restorations are remarkably durable and should be cared for similarly to your natural teeth. However, it is important to note that your temporary crown is not as strong so avoid especially hard or sticky foods until your permanent restoration is in place.
