Yelp Profile - Luxury Dentistry NYC

"My smile is very important to me. I never really had huge issues with my teeth but I did have some spacing that I was not happy with. Deciding to get invisalign was one of the best decisions I've ever made. The hard part was finding a facility that would tend to my needs and make me feel at home. I researched for quite some time before actually picking a place, but I finally ended up choosing Luxury Dentistry.”

What is a dental crown?

A dental crown is a cap that is placed over a damaged tooth to restore its appearance or strength. Designed in the shape of a tooth, crowns can be made from metal, porcelain fused to metal, resin, or ceramic.


Dental crowns can be versatile in the kinds of problems they treat. A tooth that is weak from decay, for example, can benefit from a crown that will help prevent the tooth from breaking. A crown can also hold together parts of a tooth that is already cracked or worn. Additionally, crowns can be used in conjunction with other dental treatments, such as to hold a bridge in place or cover a dental implant.

Dental crown procedure

Treatment with dental crowns typically can be done in a matter of two or three visits to Drs. Davidowitz at their state-of-the-art clinic in Manhattan. At your first visit, the dentist will begin preparing your tooth for the crown by filing it down along the top surface and sides. This will help make room for the crown. A local anesthesia will be used to ensure your tooth and gum tissue are numb for the procedure. Once the tooth is properly filed, the dentist will take impressions of the tooth and surrounding teeth and send the impression to a laboratory to manufacture the crown. In the meantime, a temporary crown made of acrylic will protect the tooth from damage or sensitivity.

In two to three weeks, Luxury Dentistry will receive your manufactured crown from the laboratory, and you will be ready for your second visit. Drs. Davidowitz will check to make sure the crown fits well and that the color matches the rest of the teeth in your mouth for a 100% natural look. A local anesthetic is applied once again to numb the tooth, and the new crown is permanently cemented over your tooth.

After treatment care

After treatment, patients may experience temporary sensitivity to heat and cold, which can be eased with toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth. Typically, dental crowns are known to last between 5 and 15 years, depending on oral hygiene, general eating, teeth-grinding or teeth-clenching habits, and other kinds of wear and tear. Habits such as biting nails or chewing ice, for example, can reduce the lifespan of your crown. Also, though a crowned tooth may be covered, it is still subject to decay or gum disease -- regular care such as brushing your teeth and flossing, especially around the crown area, will help keep the covered tooth healthy and problem-free.



The massage during treatment was a great distraction. Everyone was wonderful and gave detailed answers for my concerns
