State-Of-The-Art Ceramic Lab & Technology: (Dental Emergency Services)
We have a full-service ceramic lab and qualified ceramists on staff to respond to immediate dental needs. CEREC is a tool our dentists use to take digital imagery of your teeth. Those images are processed to create a 3D model of your tooth. This information is then sent to the ceramists and technicians in our in-office lab to commence work on your restoration right away.
The restorations are bonded to the tooth and not cemented. This means no temporaries are placed and there is no worry about coming back for a second visit for maintenance. The restorations are metal-free and have a natural look to them: your smile will look as natural as ever!

Been going to Gallery 57 Dental for 15 years. I’ve had a lot of work done over the years by many different dentists, and these folks are the best - not the cheapest, but the best. They do just about everything - teeth cleaning, routine checkups, fillings, extractions, root canals, implants, crowns. The practice is committed to using the latest technology to produce the best outcomes for their patients. The staff is professional, friendly, helpful, responsive, and they listen. Couldn’t recommend them more highly.
What Are Some Common Dental Emergencies That Need Immediate Care?
There are many situations that may arise in which you might think a phone call to an emergency dentist is advised. This includes problems such as:
- Trauma to a tooth that causes breakage or chipping
- A knocked-out or loose permanent adult tooth
- Loose or lost restorations such as veneers, fillings, or crowns
- Broken restorations, including partial or full dentures
- A severe toothache
- Signs of severe infection, including a fever and pain
Is a Severe Toothache Considered a Dental Emergency?
A severe toothache may be a sign of a serious infection that needs immediate attention from a dentist. This may include a procedure such as root canal therapy or even the administration or prescription of antibiotics. An infection from the tooth can spread throughout the body, meaning that time is of the essence when an infection occurs.
How Soon Do I Need To See the Dentist?
The immediate need for dental care depends heavily on the situation at hand. For example, if you are involved in high-contact sports and experience a permanent adult tooth that becomes loose or knocked out, immediate care is vital to improve your chances of reattaching the tooth. A loose or knocked-out tooth needs care from a professional dentist within the first hour in most situations. However, other concerns, such as a broken partial denture or a loose crown, may be addressed by a dentist within the next 24 hours or during the next business day.
How Can I Manage My Pain Until I Can Get Into the Dental Office?
Depending on the cause of your pain, our team at Gallery 57 Dental may prescribe pain medications to help you in managing your discomfort until you can get into the office for care. In other situations, you may be cleared to take over-the-counter pain medicines in the meantime, depending on the severity of the aches and discomfort you are dealing with.
What Should I Do if I Have a Lost Filling or Restoration Like a Dental Crown?
Connecting with an emergency dentist when you lose a restoration is the first step in replacing the restoration or reattaching it. When you call Gallery 57 Dental in New York, NY, our team can talk to you about your situation and determine when you can be seen by one of our skilled dental providers.
What Do I Do After a Tooth Is Cracked From Injury?
Trauma to the mouth may result in a chipped or cracked tooth. In some situations, this is a hazard because the sharp fragments can cut the soft tissues of the mouth. In others, it can leave the inner canals of a tooth exposed, resulting in a toothache or infection that gets within. Treating a cracked or chipped tooth as soon as possible is necessary to avoid further issues. Our emergency dentist at Gallery 57 Dental can help with this by using dental bonding, porcelain veneers, or dental crowns to repair the tooth structure and avoid complications.
