Dental Crowns

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 Results

Both 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.

Versatility

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.

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 Teeth

If 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.

Teeth that Have Had Fillings or Root Canals

After undergoing a root canal therapy or getting a large dental filling, a permanent crown can cover and support the weakened tooth to keep it healthy.

Cosmetic Imperfections

In some cases, Dr. Feldstein may recommend a crown instead of a porcelain veneer or other cosmetic treatment to conceal cosmetic flaws, such as tooth discoloration.

Missing Teeth

If you are missing a single tooth, a crown can restore a dental implant to fill the gap in your smile. Crowns are also used to support traditional dental bridges.

Have you been putting off dental treatment because you hate going to the dentist?

We Make Dentistry 
a Relaxing Experience

Woman relaxing during dental exam

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. 

Since it typically takes about two weeks for the lab to fabricate a custom crown, Dr. Feldstein will place a temporary crown over your prepared tooth. To avoid dislodging the temporary crown, avoid eating sticky foods. You should also try to chew on the side of your mouth opposite the temporary crown.

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

Smiling woman

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.

Alright, that looks good. But how much will it cost?

Treatment Costs Will Vary

At Jewel Dental Associates in Flushing, NY, our normal fee for a dental crown is $1,200. However, some patients may only pay $800. There are several factors which can affect the cost of your restoration.

For a single missing tooth, an implant-supported crown offers incredible benefits.
For a single missing tooth, an implant-supported crown offers incredible benefits.

Materials Used

Dr. Feldstein typically uses dental ceramic, zirconia, or IPS e.max to create beautiful, lifelike crowns. While metal crowns tend to cost less, they do not offer the same aesthetic results. We can discuss your options with you to help you make an informed decision.

Level of Damage

If the decay or damage to your smile is extensive, you may need other preparatory procedures to improve your oral health before we place your crown. These treatments can increase your overall cost.

Location of the Crown

Crowns in the front of your smile are typically easier to place. If you need a crown on a molar, your treatment may cost more.

If an Implant is Needed

For a single missing tooth, an implant-supported crown offers incredible benefits. However, implant placement will add to your treatment cost. 

Financing Is Available

Your oral health is important to us. If the cost of dental crowns is a financial burden, we offer financing through CareCredit®. Their payment plans can help make your treatment more affordable.

Do I really need a crown?

Crowns Are a Common and Effective Dental Treatment

*According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

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

White dental filling

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.
