Dental Crowns Scottsdale | Scottsdale Teeth Crowns
Dental trauma, chips, cracks, breaks and large fillings can wear your teeth down over time. At Scottsdales Dentist we can provide a long lasting restoration to help protect your tooth from further damage using a crown.
Our Doctors primary goal when making a crown is to make it undetectable. We replace your existing crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel just like your natural teeth. While gold has been a staple in dentistry for years, new technologies in porcelain, zirconia and dental ceramics have made tooth colored crowns a long term option. The teeth colored ceramics are a fabulous alternative to gold. They match the natural color of your teeth, leaving no visible sign of the restoration. With the new dental materials and good home care, we see crowns last 15 to 20 years or longer!
How long does it take to fit a dental crown?
At Scottsdales Dentist we value your time; properly fitting a crown requires at least two visits to our office. At the initial visit our Doctors will remove decay (crack or fracture), shape the tooth, and fit it with a temporary tooth colored crown.
On the subsequent visit, the Doctor will remove the temporary crown, and then fit and adjust the final crown to perfection. Finally, our Doctors will cement the crown into place and you will have a new beautiful looking tooth again!
What are the capabilities of crowns?
Scottsdale wants the best for their teeth. our Doctors provides crowns and bridgework that is a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases or wear and tear. Scottsdales Dentist uses either high-grade porcelain, porcelain bonded to gold, zirconium, or lithium disilicate.
Lastly life happens, unexplained pain from filled back teeth can happen. This is usually caused by hairline cracks in the chewing part of the tooth. Our doctors can place crowns of on these teeth which can relive the pain and allow you to fully function on your tooth again. In front teeth, older fillings can both weaken the teeth and cause appearance problems due to staining or chipping. Anterior porcelain crowns and bridges are sustainable in cases where porcelain veneers are not!
