A dental crown is a cap or cover placed over moderately to severely damaged teeth. Our capable dentists, Drs. Waite and Slovan, may suggest a dental crown in Tucson, Arizona to:
- Hold a broken tooth together
- Prevent a weak tooth from shattering
- Improve your ability to eat and speak
- Anchor a dental bridge
- Restore the structure of a tooth after root canal treatment
- Enhance the beauty of your smile
Dental crowns generally take two visits to create and place in your smile. During the first visit, we will select a shade of porcelain from which your crown will be made. We will gently reshape the tooth to help us design and create a crown that fits comfortably with your natural bite. After taking molds and impressions of the tooth, we will send the information to a dental laboratory for completion. Once back at our office, we will ensure the crown fits properly and make any necessary adjustments before permanently cementing it into place. At Corona Dental, we want you to feel confident with your smile, and we hope by providing crowns, we can start you on the road to lasting oral health.
