How you look and feel can be greatly impacted by a damaged smile. You understand how challenging eating, chewing, and even showing your smile to others can be if you have a tooth that is significantly decaying, fractured, abnormally shaped, or discolored. The good news is that we can use a dental crown to restore the strength and appearance of your smile. At Dental Excellence, our expert doctors place high-quality dental crowns in Tucson, AZ.
What are Dental Crowns?
Crowns, sometimes known as “caps,” are full-coverage dental restorations that cover severely decaying, root canal-treated, or otherwise weakened teeth. A crown encases teeth up to the gumline. In the event of a dental injury, a cavity too large to be filled with a filling, or weak and damaged teeth, we may advise having a crown placed. Dental crowns are a standard dental treatment option for restoring the health and aesthetics of teeth.
Benefits of Dental Crowns
A tooth crown can offer several advantages if your smile is damaged. There are numerous more restorative and cosmetic uses for crowns, such as:
- Following root canal therapy, preserve the tooth
- Firmly attach a dental bridge
- Covering and finishing a dental implant
- Improve the appearance of your smile
- Repair a crooked tooth
- Reinforce a weak or cracked tooth
- When there is little natural tooth structure left, support a large filling

Dental Crown Process
Getting dental crowns in Tucson is like obtaining any other kind of procedure. We will numb your tooth first, then carefully scrape away any damaged or decaying surfaces. We will then prepare your tooth, and we will make an impression. We will expertly match your new crown color to complement the teeth around it. We’ll place a temporary crown over your tooth to stop any sensitivity while it’s being created in the lab. You’ll return a couple of weeks later to have your permanent crown cemented.
At your second appointment, we will remove your temporary crown and replace it with a permanent one that is precisely shaped and colored. We use dental cement to keep the crown in place. We will polish your crown to finish the procedure before making any adjustments required to ensure your comfort and satisfaction.
How to Care for My Dental Crown
A dental crown requires the same care as a natural tooth. Your dental crown and the supporting gums remain healthy and clean with regular brushing and flossing. Your oral health depends on getting cleanings and exams at Dental Excellence regularly. Dental crowns often last up to 15 years. But if they receive the proper care, they can last for 25 to 30 years.
