Missing or severely damaged teeth can be more than just an embarrassment, they can also lead to serious oral health issues. Anyone who finds themselves avoiding social situations or the foods they love because of the condition of their teeth, may consider a dental crown to help them start smiling again. A crown, also known as a cap, is a permanent dental device used to cover a damaged or cracked tooth. It is often made of porcelain or ceramic, which allows New York City cosmetic and implant dentist, Dr. Jason Kasarsky, to perfectly match it to the patient’s natural teeth at his midtown Manhattan office. Today's technology has come so far that dental crowns, if the oral health of the patient is maintained, can last for years.
Do I qualify for dental crowns?
Our New York, NY patients may need to have a crown restoration performed to address a variety of oral conditions and to reestablish function and aesthetic appeal for a tooth. The more prevalent reasons for requiring a crown procedure are:
- Teeth that have fractures or cracks
- Worn-down or eroded teeth
- Deeply stained or misshapen teeth
- Moderate tooth decay
- Replacement of large, failing fillings
- Teeth that have been root canal-treated
- To complete a dental bridge
- To restore a dental implant
At Jason Kasarsky, DDS, crown restorations can be performed for teeth in the front and back of the mouth and may be made from top-grade ceramic or other natural-looking materials, porcelain over a metal substrate, or precious metal (like gold). Our qualified dental experts will evaluate your tooth and help you select the ideal type of crown for your oral needs and aesthetic preferences.

To place a dental crown, the tooth must first be prepared be removing any existing decay, old fillings, and a small amount of enamel. Using 3-D imaging, we will create a digital representation of the tooth to help prepare the crown. With advanced technology, a crown can sometimes be created and bonded all in the same day, which will allow the patient to avoid wearing a temporary crown. This procedure typically takes about 2 hours with little to no down time afterward.
Estimate of Cost
The cost of crowns will vary depending on the severity of damage to the teeth and the amount of repair needed. The average cost of dental crowns is between $1,000 - $1,500 per tooth. Our office will check with the patient’s insurance provider prior to treatment to inquire how much of the cost of this procedure is covered.
Best Candidates for Crowns?
A dentist may recommend a crown for treatment in the following situations: to cover a severely cracked or damaged tooth, to restore a fractured tooth, to cover a dental implant, to replace a large filling when there isn’t enough natural tooth remaining, to cover a misshapen or discolored tooth, to cover a tooth after a root canal, to protect a weak or fractured tooth, and to attach a bridge.
How Long Do Crowns Last?
Dental crowns typically last 15 - 20 years before they become damaged or need to be replaced. It is important that the patient maintain a healthy dental regimen to extend the life of crowns.
Dental Crown Benefits?
Dental crowns help to alleviate pain as well as cracks, chips, and strains on the teeth. For many patients, dental crowns give them a boost of confidence once they see their restored smile. Today, most dental crowns are composed of porcelain or ceramic, which maintains a natural look and texture, matching the patient’s smile.
