If your tooth has suffered damage from either decay or injury but the general structure of the tooth and the pulp chamber are still intact, our dentists, Dr. Sean Cook and Dr. Brian Mooney, will likely suggest a dental crown to restore the function and aesthetic of the tooth. Unlike many practices, which require two visits to create a permanent crown, Canyon Rim Dental is able to provide same-day crowns, allowing you to get a beautiful new restoration in just one visit. If you are looking for dental crowns in Mesa, Arizona, please give us a call today at 480-962-1500 to learn more about our same-day crowns and schedule your next appointment.
A dental crown, or cap, is a restoration that can be used for a number of purposes. One of the most common uses of a dental crown is to restore a tooth that is significantly damaged or decayed. The crown is custom-made to fit over the entire tooth, starting at the gum line, in order to restore the tooth to its original shape and size. Dental crowns can be made of gold, porcelain or porcelain fused to metal; porcelain crowns are popular because they match the natural color and appearance of your teeth. Our dentists will help you determine which type of dental crown is right for your smile.
Your smile may benefit from a crown if a tooth is damaged or decayed to the point that a dental filling will not provide a successful restoration. Crowns can also be used for a number of other restorative and aesthetic purposes, including:
- To protect a tooth following root canal treatment
- To anchor and attach a dental bridge
- To cover and complete a dental implant
- To enhance the beauty of your smile
- To improve a misshapen tooth
- To strengthen a tooth that is fractured or weak
- To support a large filling when little natural tooth structure remains
