Get A Tooth Crown in Phoenix
Have you ever cracked, chipped, or even broken one of your teeth? Are any of your teeth discolored or strangely shaped? It seems that no matter how careful we are, we still come across problems with our smiles. Here at Harris Dental in the Phoenix area, we work hard to provide options to our patients for fixing cracked, chipped, broken, misshapen, or discolored teeth. One of the great options we offer for fixing these issues are dental crowns.
Dental crowns are teeth caps that are placed over a carefully reshaped original tooth. These teeth caps help protect your original tooth so that it can continue to serve you for years to come.
When is a Dental Crown Necessary?
There are many reasons why you might require a tooth crown. Some of these reasons for dental crowns include:
If a large cavity compromised the strength of your tooth, teeth caps can be used to help preserve the remainder of your tooth after the cavity has been fixed.
Most root canals will require that you receive a tooth crown to help protect your natural tooth.
If you have an old filling that has failed, we can use a tooth crown to help restore the appearance and functionality of your tooth at our office in Phoenix AZ.
Misshapen or Discolored Teeth
A tooth crown acts as a cover (or cap). By placing a crown over your misshapen or discolored tooth we are able to give it additional support as well as a brand new, more aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Broken or Cracked Teeth
If one of your teeth is cracked or broken, we can use one of our beautiful porcelain dental crowns to help repair the damage. Dental crowns are an especially great treatment in scenarios where a tooth cannot be fixed with veneers, onlays or fillings. Dental crowns help to reinforce a broken tooth and hold it in place, lowering the risk of infection.
At Harris Dental, we choose to use porcelain crowns because of their ability to act just like your natural teeth. Porcelain dental crowns are beautiful, durable, long-lasting, and do not have special dental hygiene needs.
We also offer wonderful CEREC porcelain crowns as an option to our patients. By using the fantastic CEREC III D system, we can create a beautiful custom made crown for you in as little as 90 minutes.
