A decayed or missing tooth can be painful and inconvenient and interfere with your normal daily activities.
A dental crown from our Flushing, NY, practice can cover your tooth to restore its natural strength and appearance.
Why are crowns such a great option? Let's see how permanent crowns from Jewel Dental Associates can enhance your smile...
Our Crowns Are Crafted from Advanced Materials to Restore the Health of Your Smile
Strength and Function
A dental crown from Dr. Michael Feldstein can restore strength to a damaged tooth. By capping the tooth with a porcelain, zirconia, or IPS e.max® crown, you should be able to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
Natural-Looking ResultsBoth dental porcelain and IPS e.max materials mimic the qualities of natural teeth. Dr. Feldstein can carefully design and place your crown so it blends seamlessly into your smile.
We can use a dental crown to treat a wide range of conditions, from concealing cosmetic flaws to replacing a lost tooth with a dental implant. Crowns are also used after a root canal or trauma to protect and support a damaged tooth.

Many dentists including Dr. Feldstein trust dental crowns...
Porcelain Is Incredibly Long-Lasting
What Is IPS e.max? An Alternative to Porcelain
Our Flushing, NY, dental office uses the most effective materials in dentistry to help your metal-free crowns last as long as possible. In addition to zirconia, we're proud to offer IPS e.max crowns. This lithium disilicate ceramic crown costs more than traditional porcelain, but offers even greater strength and cosmetic benefits.
How do I know if a crown can help me?
Crowns Can Address a Range of Issues
Weak TeethIf a tooth has been compromised by severe decay, a large crack, or other trauma, a crown can protect the surface and provide support to help avoid tooth extraction.
Broken or Worn Teeth
For a tooth that has already been broken or has been worn down due to grinding or clenching, a crown can restore the proper structure and appearance of the tooth.

Have you been putting off dental treatment because you hate going to the dentist?
We Make Dentistry
a Relaxing Experience
Our modern dental office is equipped with a digital x-ray unit as well as intraoral cameras, allowing our dentist to provide a safe, fast, and comfortable diagnosis of your oral health issues. These tools help us closely examine the condition of each tooth and determine if we should place a dental crown or another type of restoration.
We also want you to enjoy your visit to the dentist, so each operating room has its own flat-screen TV and various music streaming services including Pandora and Spotify.
So what should I expect during treatment?
Restore Your Smile in Two Easy Appointments
Dr. Feldstein will examine your smile and determine whether a dental crown is the right treatment for you. He can also discuss the different materials we offer with you at that time.
We will remove the damaged or decayed portion of your tooth to restore proper health.
Dr. Feldstein will reshape your tooth to ensure the crown fits comfortably into your smile without appearing too large or bulky.
We will make an impression and send the information to the lab.
At your second appointment, Dr. Feldstein will remove your temporary crown and check the fit and appearance of your permanent restoration. He can make minor adjustments to ensure you are satisfied with the result.
Dr. Feldstein will bond your crown into place for a fully restored smile.
Preserving Your Permanent Crown
The finished crown is more durable and fixed than a temporary crown, though it can still become damaged or knocked loose.
There are several ways you can prevent unnecessary wear and prolong the lifespan of your dental crown, including:
- Avoiding especially hard or sticky foods
- Practicing good oral hygiene at home
- Not using abrasive toothpaste
- Flossing front to back (rather than up and down) to avoid loosening your crown
- Always attending your bi-annual dental exams
- Wearing a nightguard if you suffer from bruxism or temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder
- Not using your teeth as tools to open or cut items
During your exams, Dr. Feldstein will also check the fit of your crown and make any adjustments as necessary.

Crowns Are a Common and Effective Dental Treatment
Treating decay or damage promptly is crucial to protecting your smile against more extensive and costly issues. A crown can save your tooth.
Outstanding and Compassionate Care
"I have been going to Jewel Dental for around eight years and am very pleased with the treatment I receive. I find the staff very friendly. Dr. Teitel always tells you what he is going to do before he does it. They accept partial payment from my union and wait to hear from them before expecting me to pay." Janet Rabin - 5 Star Review
Alternatives to Crowns
Depending on your needs, a number of different treatment options might be available to you. Dental fillings, inlays, and onlays are all more conservative solutions for repairing damaged teeth. Porcelain veneers are ideal for concealing purely cosmetic cracks and chips, although they are better suited to the front teeth than the back molars.
During a consultation at our Flushing, NY, office, our dentists can determine which procedure is the most appropriate for you.
