Dental Crowns in Phoenix, AZ
At Dental Care at Moon Valley, we have many options for repairing a damaged smile, no matter what dental problem you’re suffering from.
Our goal is to provide you with high quality dental care that takes all your unique needs into account. Our doctors have extensive experience in restorative dental treatments, giving them the expertise to create beautiful crowns that restore function and blend seamlessly with your smile.
If your tooth is too badly damaged to be repaired with a filling, our doctors may suggest that a dental crown be fitted to restore and preserve the tooth. A dental crown is a cap that fits right over the tooth to replace lost structure and restore functionality.
The ideal candidate for a dental crown is someone who has experienced extensive tooth decay or damage. At our Phoenix dental office, we’re pleased to offer both durable traditional dental crowns and convenient CEREC one-day crowns.
Updated Materials, Beautiful Results
There are several materials used to make dental crowns, but porcelain is typically the most realistic in appearance. Porcelain crowns are made to match the color of your natural teeth, meaning that they’ll blend seamlessly with your smile.
Dental crowns aren't just effective for protecting teeth from additional damage. Crowns can be used to realign, reshape, or whiten a tooth, adding to a bright, healthy smile. Our doctors often choose dental crowns to:
- Support a tooth that has extensive decay
- Protect a broken tooth
- Improve the esthetics of a misshappen tooth
- Protect a tooth following root canal treatment
- Restore a dental implant
- Stabilize a dental bridge
Depending on your individual needs, the process of placing dental crowns usually takes place over two to three visits. First, we prepare your natural tooth so that your new crown will fit perfectly. Then we’ll take impressions that will be used as a mold for the crown.
The mold will be sent to our state-of-the-art dental lab, and in about two weeks, we'll have you return to our office for final placement of your permanent crown. The result is a healthier tooth that functions properly and enhances your smile.
