Dental Crowns in the 85022 Area
A dental crown is a hollow casing that is shaped and colored like your teeth. It goes over a treated tooth—hiding flaws or protecting against breakage. Dental crowns can also cap a dental implant and anchor a dental bridge. And your dentist in Moon Valley, AZ always makes sure your crown fits and functions as it should.
The longevity of your tooth crown depends on many factors, but the most important are:
- Visiting your dentist regularly for dental exams and teeth cleanings
- Brushing and flossing your teeth at least twice each day
- Never using your teeth or dental crowns for unintended purposes like opening a bottle
- Talking to your dentist about a nightguard if you grind and clench your teeth
Dental exams allow your dentist to keep up on your oral health, but they also let us check on the integrity of your dental crown. Teeth cleanings get rid of the bacteria that cause crown failure, as do brushing and flossing sessions at home.
With proper care, your dental crown can last for several years or even for life.
