When a patient wishes to improve the shape, size, strength, and appearance of a tooth, Dr. Bryce E. Justesen may recommend a dental crown in Mesa, Arizona. A dental crown is a custom-made covering that is placed over a tooth. This tooth-shaped crown will encase the visible part of the tooth. Our dentist may place a dental crown to:
- Protect a weak tooth from breaking
- Hold a cracked tooth together
- Restore a broken tooth
- Restore a worn down tooth
- Cover and support a tooth that has a large filling
- Anchor a dental bridge
- Cover a misshaped tooth
- Cover a badly stained tooth
- Cover a dental implant
- Improve the appearance of a tooth
To prepare a tooth for a dental crown, our dentist will remove a small amount of tooth enamel. This will allow room for the dental crown in your smile. Impressions of the tooth and the surrounding teeth are taken so that the dental crown can be constructed. When your dental crown is ready, our dentist will check its fit and make any necessary adjustments. The dental crown is then permanently cemented into place.
