Dental Crown Jackson Heights NY

Dental crowns are a restorative dental treatment that Dr. Fedida uses to cover and protect weakened, stained, and damaged teeth. They can also cap off dental implants and other dental restorations. Dental crowns are one of the most versatile tools a dentist has at their disposal. Not only do they treat many restorative problems, but they can also take care of some cosmetic ones, too!

At Fedida Family Dentistry and Dental Spa, Dr. Haim Fedida provides durable dental crowns made of porcelain ceramic. Porcelain dental crowns not only help balance the smile but look and feel like real teeth. Tooth crowns can change the color, shape, and durability of teeth and dental implants.

Dental Crowns in Jackson Heights, NY

To begin the dental crown treatment, we will take x-rays of the area to assess the teeth and surrounding bone. The dentist prepares the tooth or teeth receiving the dental crown by removing a portion of the tooth structure. This ensures that the crown fits properly onto the tooth. If you have a worn or damaged tooth, we can help build it up before you receive a crown for a stable fit. Then, we take dental impressions of the teeth and color-match the crown for a seamless look.

If you are receiving a crown for your dental implant, your mouth needs to fully heal before we can place the crown. The healing process for dental implants takes 3 to 6 months. To learn more about our dental implants procedure, see Dental Implants.

What are Inlays and Onlays?

Inlays and onlays are alternatives to dental crowns that cover the cusps or top of teeth. However, dentists use them when damage is too great for a filling, but not enough for a complete dental crown. They can consist of porcelain, composite resin, or gold and form a permanent bond with the tooth’s surface.

Onlays, also known as partial crowns, cover one or more of the tooth cusps. Inlays fit inside the cusps of a tooth, or can fill the area between the tooth cusps. Both provide strength and protection against further damage, but are best for preventing future tooth decay. Inlays and onlays may also protect teeth after a root canal treatment.

Dental Crown FAQs

Patients may have these common questions about dental crowns and their restorative treatment.

Do dental crowns hurt?

The dentist numbs the area around the tooth or teeth receiving the dental crowns during the procedure for your comfort. You may feel tooth sensitivity after the procedure, but the pain is minimal and shouldn’t last long. If you are feeling excessive pain, please contact our office for care as soon as possible.

How do dental crowns compare to dental fillings?

Dental fillings consist of composite resin and are on the inside of the tooth and within the tooth cusps. Tooth crowns fit over the entire visible portion of your tooth. Because of this, dental crowns can fix the shape and color of a tooth and support weakened teeth.

Can dental crowns fall out?

Yes, dental crowns can loosen due to damage or tooth decay. If you notice any changes in the fit or comfort of your tooth crown, please contact our office. We will help replace your crown and treat any infection.

Can I use a Dental Crown to whiten my smile?

Dentists usually fix discolored teeth using professional teeth whitening services. But not all discoloration responds to this treatment. Teeth with deep stains from medication or discoloration due to trauma need another solution. If you have a one or two stained teeth that stick out, we can use a dental crown to hide the imperfection. We color-match dental crowns to the shade you desire. They will completely cover the stained tooth and brighten your smile.
