Dental Crowns in New York City

Why Do I Need A Dental Crown?

Dental crowns are usually the best option if you have a severely damaged tooth. They may be recommended to treat deep cavities, to restore teeth after a root canal, or to restore your tooth after it’s been damaged by dental trauma.

With a dental crown, you can repair your tooth and protect it from further damage. And with a lifelike dental crown from Dr. Jagirdar at Flatiron Dental, you can restore the natural appearance of your smile, too.

Lifelike, Lab-Made Dental Crowns

At Flatiron Dental, we work with a qualified dental lab to build our crowns. Lab-made dental crowns are typically built from a metal base with a tooth-like, porcelain ceramic “shell.” Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns provide the best combination of durability, strength, and aesthetic results.

Our crowns look and feel just like real teeth, too. During the treatment process, Dr. Jagirdar will scan your mouth and work with our partner dental lab to create a truly lifelike tooth that will look, feel, and function just like a natural tooth.

The Benefits of Dental Crowns

Tooth Roots Retained

Crowns may cover up and protect your natural tooth. But, critically, the natural tooth structure and roots of your tooth remain intact and alive. It’s always better to preserve your tooth, when possible.

Blends Naturally

Our lab-made crowns provide truly lifelike results. Nobody will be able to tell your dental crown apart from a natural tooth.


Crowns cover up and protect your entire tooth, and they're made of very durable materials. You can trust your crown to hold up to chewing and biting, and last for years to come.


Crowns can easily last 10-20 years with proper dental care. This makes them one of the most long-lasting restorative treatments.

How Long Do Dental Crowns Last?

Dental crowns are very durable, and as long as you care for your crown and your natural teeth properly, you’ll be able to keep it for a very long time. Generally speaking, you can expect your dental crowns to last 10-20 years or longer.

How Do I Care For My Dental Crown?

For the most part, you can treat your dental crown just like a natural tooth. Make sure you brush twice a day and floss once per day. Eat a “tooth-healthy” diet that’s low in sugar and processed foods, and make sure to come into Flatiron Dental for a checkup with Dr. Jagirdar every six months.

You should also avoid doing things that could damage your crown or natural tooth. Don’t chew really hard foods like ice or popcorn kernels. Don’t use your teeth as “tools” to open packages, or to chew non-food objects like your fingernails.

What Issues Can A Dental Crown Treat?

Primarily, dental crowns are meant to treat damaged teeth. They are often recommended if you have deep cavities, to treat an infected tooth after root canal therapy, and to repair teeth that have been damaged by oral trauma.

However, they are also sometimes used for cosmetic purposes. For example, if Dr. Jagirdar believes that veneers and other cosmetic treatments are not appropriate for your treatment, she may recommend dental crowns instead.
