What are Dental Crowns?
Single teeth that have been subjected to extensive damage or tooth decay can typically be treated with a crown restoration. Our modern facility provides dental crowns to New York, NY patients to help cover and protect the aesthetics of a tooth while also restoring its normal function. Crown restorations are custom-designed to blend beautifully with existing teeth and are frequently used to restore health to teeth that are fractured, decayed, malformed, and more. These restorations may also be combined into a unit to serve as a bridge or placed over single dental implants to replace a missing tooth.

Dental Crowns Reviews
Doctor Estrada is the best! He makes amazing crowns!
Updated 1/30/2023 - Not sure what’s happened at East Village Dental however I think it’s a change in the management team that handles customer service. While they have updated the way they conduct business when you call they rarely pick up the phone, they do not return calls, they don’t have an emergency line for concerns post surgery. After an uncovering I developed canker sores and called them for a follow up they told me they’d call me back and instead I went the entire weekend in pain (see attached photo at your discretion). I did use warm water and salt to soothe the area but maybe they could have prescribed something to alleviate the pain which led to several days of headaches. There was little concern about my pain/discomfort which I’m very surprised from a place that I really liked and highly recommended just 1-2 years ago. After my crowns are in place I’m not sure I’ll go to them for a cleaning letting alone any serious oral surgery. Until they get a team that’s actually concerned about the customer/Patient stay away from EVD. Update [3/23/2023]: The office manager did call me and assured me that they will note my concerns and look to conduct better care of patients moving forward. I did feel she was sincere and have since then updated my review. I hope they continue to work on their patient care services as they are a vital team in the community.

What is the Dental Crown Procedure?
The dental crown process for New York City residents usually takes place within one visit. To start, one of our highly-trained dentists will anesthetize your tooth and gums and may provide sedation services to elevate your comfort if you prefer. Once the damaged area is cleaned out, an impression of the tooth will be captured and utilized to generate your personalized crown. Thanks to the state-of-the-art CEREC® technology we use at our Manhattan East Village facility, we can often create the crown on the same day. If necessary, an interim crown can be worn on your tooth to sustain oral function and a natural-looking appearance while your customized crown is being constructed.
How Do I Care for My Dental Crown?
After your crown has been placed, your custom restoration will be adjusted to make certain your teeth come together evenly. A member of our staff will discuss the recommended way to take care of your restoration and go over effective brushing and flossing techniques. When you visit for your regular dental exams, one of our practitioners will assess the condition of your crown along with your comprehensive oral wellness. With ideal care, a dental restoration can help maintain your tooth for several years. In the instance that your crown ever feels dislodged or is no longer attached to your tooth, we urge you to contact us right away. Attempting to repair or glue it back on yourself may cause damage to your restoration and tooth.
