Welcome to Bayside Family Dentistry, where Dr. Aram Cazazian and our team are happy to offer dental crowns for our patients in Bayside, New York and the neighboring communities. Our dental crowns can improve your smile, whether by covering a damaged tooth (also known as a “cap”) or by covering a dental implant. Our crowns can be used to help a tooth’s shape or appearance to look more attractive, as well as keep your bite healthy because it keeps your teeth from shifting, which is possible when teeth are missing.

A dental crown can last anywhere between five to fifteen years, depending on a) the materials your crown is made of, and b) how well you care for your oral health in general. A crown may be created from ceramic, porcelain fused to metal, gold alloys or base metal alloys. Taking good care of your crown means staying on top of your oral health overall. This means:

  1. Brushing at least twice a day
  2. Flossing daily at least once (particularly around the crown area where your gums reach the tooth)
  3. Avoiding hard foods, biting your fingernails and grinding and clenching your teeth
  4. Keeping up with routine professional dental cleanings and exams

If you have a damaged or missing tooth, Dr. Aram Cazazian is ready to revitalize your smile with a dental crown. If you would like to schedule a visit with our team in Bayside, New York, please give us a call today at (718) 423-7009!
