Prime Dental is here for all of your dental crown needs!
What Are Dental Crowns?
A dental crown is a “tooth cap” made of porcelain that is placed over a tooth to help restore its shape, strength and size.
The crown replaces the external portion of the tooth down to the gums in order to help preserve the appearance and health of your smile. Our Tucson dental team may recommend a crown to:
- Cover a dental implant
- Restore a broken or worn tooth
- Protect a tooth that has been weakened from decay from breaking
- Hold a dental bridge in place
- Cover a misshapen or discolored tooth
- Support a tooth with a large filling
- Reinforce a tooth treated using root canal therapy
Is A Dental Crown The Right Choice For Me?
Most people are ideal candidates for a crown. This dental procedure can improve the appearance of a damaged tooth while also restoring the tooth’s natural function. After a dental crown is placed, you can once again chew without pain and smile with confidence.
How Long Will A Crown Last?
Most crowns last between 5 and 15 years depending on the wear and tear and how closely you pay attention to your oral care. A crown should be treated just like your natural teeth, so regular cleanings and checkups at Prime Dental are key!
