Dental Crowns Can Repair Damaged Teeth

Is a damaged tooth causing you discomfort, hindering your ability to brush properly, or making you feel self-conscious? There is a quick and long-lasting solution to all of these problems at the Mesa, AZ, office of Dr. Katia Mortazavinia: dental crowns.

Dental damage from injury, decay, or previous tooth repairs can be concealed with dental crowns, restoring the health, function, and appearance of your tooth.

What can dental crowns fix?

A dental crown from our Mesa, AZ, office can solve many dental imperfections, including chips, cracks, protrusions, worn enamel, voids from a cavity, or visible decay.

How does a dental crown work?

A dental crown, usually made from a ceramic material, fits over the damaged portion of the tooth. Custom-made to fit the size, shape, and hue of your tooth, it is cemented to the tooth's surface and cured under a light to make it durable.

What benefits does a crown offer?

  • Appearance: A crown hides visible dental flaws, so your tooth looks natural and healthy
  • Function: Damaged teeth can make biting, chewing, and even brushing more difficult. A restored tooth will allow you to perform these actions comfortably
  • Health: An impaired tooth can become susceptible to bacterial growth, infection, and decay, leaving the tooth weaker and possibly impacting the surrounding teeth and gums. A crown protects the tooth, and in turn your overall oral health

Does a dental crown need special care?

Because crowns are securely held in place, they can withstand eating and everyday wear and tear. You should brush and floss like normal, and continue having regular professional cleanings and exams at your dentist's office. With proper oral care, crowns can last decades.

As with any dental implement, damage can occur from eating extremely hard or sticky foods or injury.
