Dental crowns are an important tooth restoration. Sometimes called "caps," tooth crowns are placed over a tooth to cover it completely. You may need a dental crown if you have a:
- Broken tooth
- Cracked tooth
- Severely worn tooth
Additionally, dental crowns are used as the upper, visible portion of a dental implant. Crowns are also used as part of the structure of a dental bridge. So if you receive either of these restorations, a dental crown will be used. To better customize your dentistry to you, at Desert Smiles we provide all-porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, and gold tooth crowns. To find out if you could benefit from a tooth crown or other restorative dentistry, please contact experienced Phoenix, Arizona dentist Dr. Donald Wilcox to schedule a consultation at Desert Smiles Cosmetic & Sedation Dentistry.
