Facts on Tooth Crowns in Manhattan NYC

If you have a missing or chipped tooth, come and ask your dentist for a dental crown treatment at JDental! A tooth-shaped “cap” mounted over a tooth is a dental tooth crown. This “cap” is used to cover the tooth and restore the shape, size, strength and appearance of the tooth.Usually, dental crowns are required to prevent weak teeth from fracturing, for keeping sections of cracked teeth together, to repair broken teeth or worn down teeth, to support a large filling tooth, to keep a dental bridge in place, to cover misshapen or discolored teeth, to cover a dental implant, or to cosmetically change the appearance of your teeth. To save a tooth weakened by decay, protect teeth at risk of decay, or minimize the frequency of general anesthesia in children a dental tooth crown can also be used on baby teeth.

Make an Appointment

The dental crown procedure is fairly simple and easy-most of the time it only requires only TWO visits! Our experience and advanced staff are here to gently tend to all your tooth needs and leave your smile feeling as good as new! We are the best dental practice in Midtown NYC and can offer affordable and competitive prices for all your dental crown needs!

During the first visit, your dentist will examine and prepare the tooth that requires the crown. This visit includes taking an impression of the tooth to have a prototype for the crown to be made, taking impressions of your entire mouth to ensure the crown will fit in your bite, and shaving or building up the tooth to the appropriate size to take the crown. A temporary stainless steel or acrylic crown will then be placed to protect the existing tooth while the permanent crown is being made.

Dental crowns are manufactured in dental laboratories, not directly in the office and may take a few days to make. Dental crowns can be made of a variety of materials based on the need. Multiple materials also ensure that your crown cosmetics can fit seamlessly with your other teeth. Metal crowns are typically made of alloys with a high content of gold or platinum or a base metal alloy. Metal crowns are the strongest type of crowns and resist breaking or chipping. However, their metal appearance does not blend well with other teeth and metal crowns are typically the highest costing crowns. Another popular dental crown is a porcelain-fused-to-metal crown. These crowns can be matched to the color of your teeth and can blend perfectly with your existing smile. They are more susceptible to chipping and breaking but look the most like normal teeth. Zirconia crowns are made from zirconium dioxide- a durable metal similar to titanium. These crowns are particularly durable and strong, but like metal crowns can be hard to match to your natural tooth color. Other types of crowns include all-resin, all ceramic, or all porcelain crowns. All porcelain crowns are common because they provide the match to your other teeth, many people choose them because of the advantage of the crown cosmetics look. The best type of crown for the tooth and budget should be decided with your dentist.

Once the permanent dental crown is completed, you will return to JDental for your second appointment to continue your dental crown procedure. Your dentist will remove the temporary crowns and numb your tooth and gum using local anesthesia. Using permanent cement, the permanent crown is then positioned over your existing tooth. During the operation, water is used along with the high-speed instruments to avoid pain.

A dental crown lasts between 5 and 15 years. This depends on the amount of “wear and tear” it lasts, your oral health, and your private mouth habits (grinding, biting nails, chewing ice, etc). It is important to keep up your dental hygiene with regular brushing and flossing.

Tooth crowns are necessary to badly decayed, broken, or weak teeth. They are prosthetic teeth fit over the existing broken or decayed tooth. Crowns are permanent and are made to look like and function like normal teeth. Fillings are used similarly to restore teeth but can only cure a smaller amount of damage. When getting a filling, all of the decayed tooth material is removed; this is unlike a crown which is placed directly over the weak tooth. Fillings are also used to treat cavities to restore teeth. Fillings can be made of resin, amalgam, porcelain, or gold- fillings use some of the materials commonly used for dental crowns.

Make an Appointment

You may feel some tooth crown pain or discomfort during and after a dental tooth crown procedure. Pain long after the procedure however is uncommon and could be a sign of a more serious issue- contact your dentist if you feel any tooth crown pain especially when biting down. Your teeth may feel sensitive especially to hot or cold food- this is normal, your dentist may recommend a sensitive toothpaste to help.

Other dental crown problems may occur like breaking or chipping. If this happens, immediately contact your dentist to get it replaced- without the crown your tooth could be at risk for more damage and your teeth will not function properly. Both temporary and permanent dental crowns can sometimes be placed back in your mouth temporarily with cement you can buy at your local pharmacy if you cannot get to your dentist right away.

Temporary crowns are more sensitive to wear and tear than permanent dental crowns. With a temporary crown, you must avoid certain sticky or hard foods and chew on the side of your mouth without the crown. It is also important to be careful while flossing- sliding rather than lifting the floss out.

If you have any dental crown problems, do not hesitate to call us right away at (646)-649-3021 for instructions on how best to proceed.

Dr. deSouza is an artist! She cares deeply about her patients and her work. She knows that the best billboard is your smile and she takes pride in creating the best billboards in New York City. A few years ago she rebuilt a severely eroded tooth. I’ve since moved to Los Angeles and every dentist I see out here marvels at her work. 7 years and it’s still holding up with no pain or signs of erosion. And it looks great too! That’s art. Two things I miss about NYC. It’s energy and Jessica DeSouza DDS.
