About Dental Crowns
Crowns are very strong, durable covers that fit snugly over the entire tooth to hide cosmetic issues like broken teeth, deep discoloration, or large, dark fillings, while also providing strength to the tooth structure. They're often used on teeth that have had root canals to cover up the discoloration that usually follows a root canal and to help provide additional strength to the tooth, which may have been weakened by the removal of the interior pulp. They're also used in bridge procedures to provide strength and protection to the teeth used to support a bridge. During the consultation, general and cosmetic dentist, Dr. Victoria Veytsman, will discuss the patient’s crown options and develop a treatment plan based on their needs. As part of Dr. Veytsman's commitment to patient safety, Cosmetic Dental Studios in Manhattan, New York is a metal and mercury free practice.
Dental Crowns Reviews
"I've always been scared about going to the dentist...not sure if it's the treatment or the cost, but I have to say I've never been more impressed by an office than here with Dr. Veytsman and her team. Dr. Veytsman really makes you feel at ease about the procedure and I couldn't be happier with the results. I'm able to email all my questions and always feel as if the entire team has my best interest at heart. It took a few appointments and a financial commitment for me, but it truly was well worth it. Whether you're looking to do Invisalign, veneers, fillings, crowns or bondings, you HAVE to come here. It's a one of a kind experience - difficult to find anywhere much less NYC!"- C.P. / Yelp / Jan 06, 2015

"Full Smile Makeover - Wonderful experience. Had old crowns replaced and new veneers put in on both top and bottom. Really feel 15 years younger. Very happy with the experience and decision. Doctor and staff top notch and always available. Stellar results, highly recommend."- D. / RealSelf / Oct 16, 2018
"The BEST experience Ive had at the dentist and I NEVER leave reviews but I had to. I was so scared of the dentist and I'm so so happy I found this practice. Dr v is one of the most personable kindest warmest individuals I have ever met and made everything a breeze. I had a ton of old work that had to be redone. Old cracked silver fillings and needed a lot of crowns. I got a whitening and am starting invisalign. I am referring my husband to replace a few old veneers he had done 15 years ago. Go here. I always leave feeling better."- F.D. / Google / Feb 03, 2019
"Great Experience with Dr Veytsman and Her Dream Team - I am on my way to having the smile that I always wanted with Dr Veytsman! After many years of being embarrassed by my teeth and after recovering from a severe illness this past spring, I decided to stop putting off what I have always wanted....A beautiful smile. Dr Veytsman was kind enough to do a FaceTime consultation with me so that we could discuss my case. As soon as the office reopened for business last month we started my journey. Dr Veytsman and her staff are wonderful and welcoming and made me feel safe and secure. The office is immaculate and she has all of the necessary procedures in place to insure a safe experience for all. I am having 10 teeth done on the top to start. So far, Dr V has removed all of my ancient crowns and the decay that she found under them and prepared my mouth and my teeth for the new veneers. This was all done in one day and was pain free. My smile looks better already even though I am only wearing the temporary teeth that Dr V made for me in the office on that first day. I now have to have a little bit of work on the gum area on one or two of my teeth that held the old crowns to ensure longevity of my new smile. After that I will be going back to Dr Veytsman to have my final veneers and crowns placed. Not only will my smile be beautiful, but it will be healthy as well. I will follow up with before and after photos."- B. / RealSelf / Aug 04, 2020
What to Expect
A dental crown usually takes 2 appointments to complete. During the first appointment, Dr. Veytsman will prepare the tooth for the crown, take impressions of the tooth for the permanent crown, and place a temporary crown over the tooth to protect it. The impressions are sent to a dental laboratory where a customized crown(s) will be created for the patient. Once the crowns arrive back at the Cosmetic Dental Studios, the patient can schedule an appointment to have their permanent crown(s) fitted and set by Dr. Veytsman.
Patients do not usually have any pain after a crown is placed, but some patients experience discomfort or tooth sensitivity. Depending on the material, crowns can last from 7 – 40 years. Patients can extend the life of their crown by practicing good oral hygiene and visiting Cosmetic Dental Studios for regular exams and cleanings. If oral health is neglected, the tooth under the crown may develop a cavity or infection that will require more extensive treatment, like a root canal.
The total cost of a dental crown will depend on the materials used, as well as the amount of teeth treated, their condition, size, and location. Dr. Veytsman will go over estimated costs and financing options during the patient’s consultation and the front office can check with the patient’s insurance to determine if any of their costs are covered.
