Dental Crowns – Tucson, AZ

Protect Damaged and Compromised Teeth

Teeth are very strong, but they are not completed indestructible. There are all sorts of ways that teeth can become damaged, such as poor oral hygiene, a sports injury, or an unexpected accident. However, if your tooth has endured damage, it is left vulnerable and can become further harmed in the future. You could even end up with a serious dental emergency and need to have your tooth extracted. Fortunately, Dr. Alison Fitzgerald offers dental crowns in Tucson to protect damaged and compromised teeth. To learn more about dental crowns or to schedule an appointment, just give us a call!

The Process of Getting a Dental Crown

When you have a dental crown placed, you will be met with a relatively straightforward process that can typically be completed in just two appointments. First, Dr. Fitzgerald will take a look at your smile to ensure that a dental crown is the best solution. Your tooth will be prepared by having a thin layer of enamel removed from it to make room for the crown. Next, an impression is taken and sent to a dental laboratory where your crown will be crafted. In the meantime, we will provide you with a temporary dental crown so your tooth remains protected, and you will be able to get used to how your new crown will feel.
