Phoenix Dental Crown Provider

According to the American College of Prosthodontists, the most common dental restoration is a single dental crown. Dentists utilize dental crowns in a variety of treatment situations. Crowns may help protect vulnerable teeth from further decay. They may cap damaged teeth and cover deep fillings. Crowns often complete dental implants or cover teeth treated with root canals. Dentists can work with their dental lab and the patient to create custom-fitting dental crowns that may restore a tooth's shape and size to near perfect.
Dental crown treatment is available at Smile Dental Studio in Phoenix and the surrounding area. Crowns help restore a tooth that has significant damage with a custom-sized cap that fits over the old tooth. We provide dental crowns and restorations for our patients. For broken, damaged, or decaying teeth, crowns may be the right solution.

Why Patients Get a Dental Crown

Dentists utilize dental crowns in a variety of treatment situations.

Dental Bridge

A dental bridge is a restoration that fills in the gap left by a missing tooth. The adjacent teeth, known as abutment teeth, are reshaped and capped with dental crowns. These crowns secure the artificial tooth, forming the bridge.

Prevent Tooth Decay

Dental crowns act as protective shields for vulnerable teeth, preventing further decay. They are particularly beneficial for teeth with extensive damage or deep cavities.

Prevent Tooth Loss

Crowns may help prevent tooth loss by providing structural support to weakened teeth. When a tooth is significantly damaged, a crown can reinforce it, preserving its functionality.

Cover Teeth With Root Canal

After a root canal procedure, a tooth may become weakened. Dental crowns are often used to cover and protect teeth treated with root canals, restoring their strength and appearance.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns offer a range of benefits, making them a popular choice for various dental issues. Some key advantages include:


Crowns protect weakened or damaged teeth, preventing further deterioration.


They restore the shape, size, and appearance of a tooth to near perfection.



Crowns are versatile and can be used in conjunction with other dental treatments.



With proper care, dental crowns can last for an extended period, providing long-lasting results.


Receiving a Dental Crown Step-by-Step

It may take a few appointments for a patient to receive a crown. In many cases, the dental crown procedure is part of another dental treatment plan, such as a root canal. Here is the step-by-step process for getting a dental crown:


Before the Crown

The dentist treats any problems before starting the dental crown creation process. Any infections or cavities must be addressed or filled. Sometimes, an old crown needs replacement. In this case, the dentist will remove the remnants first.



Next, the dentist must prepare the tooth for the crown. The dentist or another member of our team will shave down the tooth to make room for the crown. Then, the dental staff makes a series of impressions to send to the lab. Some patients receive a temporary crown at the end of this appointment.


Crown Delivery

Once the crown is ready for delivery, the patient must return to the office for placement. First, the dentist tries on the crown to make sure it feels and looks right in the mouth. If it fits correctly, the dentist uses dental cement to glue it in place permanently.

FAQ's About Crowns

  • Does getting a dental crown hurt?

    During preparation, the dentist may numb the area for the patient's comfort. After fitting, patients may have a little soreness in the area where the crown sits for a few days. Pain that continues well after the crown fitting may indicate a poor fit, which requires a return visit for an adjustment.

  • Does a dental crown look natural?

    Most dental crowns look just like the rest of the natural teeth. Dentists work to help patients select a natural-looking shade for the new dental crown that matches the other teeth. Today's dental crowns are indistinguishable from permanent teeth.

  • Does a dental crown need replacement?

    Dental crowns need replacement over time. The crown's material and the patient's oral health may determine how often they will need replacement. On average, it takes five to 15 years before crowns require replacement.

  • Are crowns a cost-effective choice?

    Patients should discuss dental crown options with their insurance provider to see if crowns are covered. Crowns that are part of a treatment plan, such as tooth decay repair, may have a higher likelihood of insurance coverage. The choice of material for the crown also influences the cost.

  • How long will it take to get a crown?

    The length of the dental crown treatment is dependent on several factors. Crowns that are part of a root canal or another intensive treatment may take longer because of the other steps in the procedure. Talk to the dentist to get an idea about how long the crown process will take.

  • What are the alternatives to getting a crown?

    Patients may have other options besides dental crowns, depending on their case and situation. For some patients, a filling, inlay, or onlay may be sufficient to restore the tooth. Pulling the tooth may also be a viable alternative to a dental crown.

  • How do dental bridges work with dental crowns?

    It is not uncommon for patients to get dental crowns to complete a dental bridge. According to WebMD, bridges fill in the gap left behind by a missing tooth. If a patient has a single missing tooth, dentists may restore it by creating a dental appliance that anchors to the two adjacent teeth. The dentist must reshape the two abutment teeth to secure the dental bridge.
    Reshaping these teeth involves removing much of the enamel. The abutment teeth are topped with dental crowns which attach to the new artificial tooth that makes up the middle piece of the bridge.
