Dental Crowns Overview
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.

"I want to thank you, again, for getting me in yesterday. I must say that was probably the best dental visit I have ever had. You and your staff are excellent at welcoming, explaining, and attending to the patient."- J.A. / Office Visit / Mar 23, 2017
"Best NYC cosmetic dentist - I've recommended him to so many and will keep doing so. He really is a dental artist and the whole staff is so warm and friendly. He fixed my 2 front teeth about 10 years ago (replaced 2 tired crowns where that silvery look along the gumline was starting to happen) Now they blend and perfectly complement my smile overall. Many dentists I've seen since I moved to the burbs all comment on his work and say whoever did your crown did a real good job! Yay Dr. K!"- K. / Judy's Book / Jul 06, 2011
"Jason, You're like Federer . You've got the magic touch. Every move is perfect and you have a great command of your staff around you. As long as I've been a patient/friend I still notice everything, as all your patients do of course, about how i'm treated by you and everyone on your staff. Always been first cabin! Best, Mark"- mc / Office Visit / Jul 13, 2017
Dental Crowns Treatment
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.
Dental Cleanings 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.
