Crowns and Bridges in Tucson, AZ

Crowns and Bridges Tuscon, AZ

A dental crown or bridge is commonly used by Dr. Robert Hawke, a cosmetic dentist in Tucson, AZ, to replace missing teeth or restore and protect damaged ones so that patients are left with smiles that look and function beautifully again.

Dental Crown

The dental crown is also known as a cap and is made with natural-looking materials that blend with existing teeth, such as resin, porcelain and ceramic. A dental crown is customized to fit right on top of an existing tooth to improve its appearance. It can be used to cover a vulnerable tooth after surgery, and is also the top, visible component of a dental implant.

You will need to come to the office two times for a dental crown procedure.

• X-Rays of your teeth and jaw will allow Dr. Hawke to examine the condition of your tooth roots and jaw structure to make sure they are ready to accommodate a dental crown. Any gum disease or tooth decay would need to be addressed as well.
• Some local anesthetic is placed to the area where you are getting a dental crown.
• Dr. Hawke will shape the surface of your existing tooth to make room.
• Next, he takes impressions of your tooth and sends it to a dental lab for a customized crown, which takes a few weeks.
• A temporary dental crown is placed over your tooth.
• When the new crown is ready, Dr. Hawke will examine your tooth again before placing the permanent crown over it.
