Dental Crown Phoenix, AZ

Dental Crowns at David R. Moyer Cosmetic & Family DentistryDental caries is an infectious disease which progresses rapidly making tooth structure weak and vulnerable to fracture. Simple fillings and restorations can restore the teeth at early stages of dental decay. However, in grossly carious teeth associated with fractures of the cusps, a full coverage restoration is the only option for strengthening the remaining tooth structure. Furthermore, in cases of pulp infection and root canal therapy treatment procedures, saved teeth become brittle and hollow and necessitate the provision of complete coverage prosthesis for aesthetics, strength, and durability. Dr. Moyer, your own general and cosmetic dentist in Scottsdale, Arizona, provides state of the art complete coverage dental crowns for the rehabilitation of severely broken down, decayed, and root canal treated teeth.

What are dental crowns?
Dental crown restorations come under the combined umbrella of restorative and prosthodontic dentistry. Dental crowns are full coverage restorations which cover the entire tooth structure in the form of a cap and provide strength, shape, aesthetics, and functional ability to the remaining natural tooth structure underneath.

Which dental crowns are aesthetically best?
Various types of dental materials are used in the fabrication of dental crowns:
•  All metal crowns
•  Gold crowns
•  Porcelain fused to metal crowns
•  All porcelain crowns

Dr. Moyer recommends all porcelain crowns in cases requiring excellent aesthetic outcomes. All porcelain dental crowns provide the intended surface and texture matching closely to natural teeth.

When are dental crowns needed for my teeth?
Dr. Moyer warrants the use of dental crowns when other less invasive and conservative dental restorations cannot restore the damaged tooth's appearance and strength:
•  To reinforce the strength and modify the appearance of root canal treated teeth
•  In the treatment of broken or cracked teeth to alleviate pain and discomfort
•  As a crown restoration over the osseointegrated dental implants
•  For the improvement of the unsightly appearance of teeth
•  To correct abnormal gaps between teeth
•  To provide stability to a dental bridge or fixed partial dental prosthesis
•  In cases of severe sensitivity of teeth

What is the procedure for the provision of dental crowns?
Dr. Moyer will take a complete history and carry out a comprehensive examination of all the teeth and surrounding tissues before planning dental crown restorations. After getting informed consent, preparation of the affected tooth for crown placement will be performed. Following tooth preparation, an impression of the teeth will be recorded and sent to the dental laboratory. The laboratory fabricated dental crown will be tried in and checked for any disturbances in fit and occlusion on the next visit. The high-quality dental crown will be cemented onto the prepared tooth. Post insertion instructions will be given for the maintenance and care of the new restoration.

Can I get dental crowns in a single visit?
Recent advancements in dental technology have made it possible to provide you with dental crowns on the same visit. Latest systems such as CAD/CAM and CEREC allow the dentist to take a digital impression of the tooth after preparation and get a 3D image on the computer in order to design the restoration which is then fabricated through computer assisted milling and cemented in your mouth on the same visit.

Do I need to brush and floss my dental crowns?
Yes. You need to take care of your artificial teeth just like their natural counterparts. Clean and brush twice daily and floss between teeth after meals.

How long will my dental crowns last?
Dental crown restorations last for more than 5–15 years. However, the lifespan of these restorations depends upon the location in the mouth, applied forces on them and oral hygiene maintenance measures.
