Dental Crowns

Broken or decayed teeth can be embarrassing and even painful.

Dental crowns provide support and protection to help preserve the damaged tooth structure and restore your smile.

Dentist Robert Hawke in Tucson, AZ, provides emergency services and same-day dental crowns to help you enjoy your smile once again. 

A Closer Look at Crowns

A crown is a porcelain cap that covers the entire visible surface of your natural tooth. Crowns can be used to treat a variety of dental concerns, including broken, infected, or missing teeth. With proper care, dental crowns can serve your dental needs for many years to come.
A dental crown is designed to fit on top of your natural tooth like a helmet. 

How Can a Crown Help You?

Reinforce a Tooth

Teeth can be weakened by excessive grinding or fractures. Dental crowns help strengthen your tooth structure before you need an extraction.

Restore a Tooth

If a filling, inlay, or onlay is no longer appropriate for filling in the space left behind by a cavity, a dental crown might be the next treatment option.

Treat an Infected Tooth

Crowns are often used to restore and protect teeth treated with root canal therapy. With our in-office technology, our dentist can perform a root canal and place a crown in one day.

Enhance a Tooth

Dental crowns are so lifelike they can be used to conceal severe discoloration, misshapen teeth, or teeth that do not match the size of your surrounding teeth. 

Replace a Tooth

If you are missing a tooth, you can opt for an implant-supported crown instead of a dental bridge. These crowns are supported by dental implants and beautifully replace single teeth.

Implant-Supported Crowns Are Incredibly Common Dentists Place Millions Each Year

Over 2 million implant-supported crowns are made each year
In the past, dental bridges were used to replace single missing teeth. This required permanent alteration of healthy surrounding teeth. Today, patients at our Tucson, AZ, office can replace a single missing tooth with a dental crown supported by dental implants.

Not Sure if a Crown is Right for You?

We understand dental issues can be complex. At our Tucson, AZ, dental practice, we are more than happy to answer any questions you may have. We want you to be comfortable and confident with your treatment plan.

What's more, we know your time is valuable. Our dentistry practice uses CEREC technology, meaning most patients can leave their appointment with their permanent dental crown, instead of waiting on a lab. That means no need for a temporary crown and fewer appointments. Call us or request an initial consultation online today to start your journey towards a healthier smile.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does getting a dental crown hurt?

The procedure is virtually painless; your dentist will thoroughly numb the treatment area using a local anesthetic. However, if you have dental anxiety or trouble sitting still, our dentist also offers nitrous oxide to keep you relaxed and comfortable throughout your procedure.

Why not just pull the damaged or decayed tooth? 

Even a single missing tooth can cause jawbone deterioration. Dental crowns allow the dentist to treat the decay, repair the damage, and maintain the tooth structure, eliminating the need for dental implants and extraction

What materials are used to make dental crowns?

Traditional dental crowns are often crafted using porcelain. While porcelain is a durable material, our dental practice uses IPS e.max®. IPS e.max is a high-quality ceramic material that is strong, natural-looking, and without the risk of allergic reactions that can be associated with metal crowns.
