Tooth structure
People need Dental Crowns for a variety of reasons

Dental crowns, also referred to as “tooth caps,” are just what they sound like – they cover the top portion, or crown, of teeth. Dental crowns can be used in a variety of situations to repair and restore your teeth, and to improve a tooth’s aesthetic appearance. The dentists at Martin Taylor Dentistry in Tucson, AZ are experts in creating natural-looking crowns that feel and function as great as they look.

Dental crowns explained

One of the most common types of dental restorations, dental crowns are incredibly versatile and can be used to repair teeth in several different scenarios, such as:

  • A tooth has a cavity that is too large for a composite dental filling to effectively restore the tooth
  • Your tooth has cracked, fractured, or a piece has broken off – a crown for a broken tooth is a cost-effective way to save and restore the tooth to health
  • A root canal has been performed on the tooth, in which case a crown can protect and strengthen the tooth after treatment
  • Tooth wear and tear due to grinding and clenching or an uneven bite – these issues can wear down your teeth over time and a dental crown is a good option for restoring your teeth’s original size and shape
  • For patients with cosmetic issues such as permanent discoloration, a front tooth cap may be a good choice for enhancing the appearance of your tooth
  • Old crowns or other restorations may need to be replaced over time if they have become damaged, loose, or discolored

Dental crowns can be made from a variety of materials. At Martin Taylor Dentistry, one of the most common materials patients choose for their crowns is porcelain. Porcelain crowns are incredibly strong and durable and provide reliable results for many years. Zirconia crowns are also rising in popularity and provide a good balance between strength and appearance due to zirconia’s translucency that mimics natural teeth.

If you have a broken tooth or decay that is causing you pain, the dentists at Martin Taylor Dentistry are here to help restore the natural function and appearance of your smile. To schedule your appointment, call our Tucson, AZ office today at (520) 600-6925.

Dr. Taylor, Dr. Martin, and their entire staff are the very best. The front desk staff, the dental assistants, and dental hygienists are excellent. I’ve been to many dentists over the years, and they are the most skilled and professional group of people that I have encountered. You can be confident you will be fully informed about what is recommended for a treatment plan and what it will cost. I’ve had the gamut of dental procedures — crowns, implants, root canals, and more routine care. It’s been made as pleasant and comfortable as possible by their skill, as well as their kindness and understanding. I wholeheartedly recommend Martin and Taylor Dentistry.

I have been a patient of Dr. Taylor’s for most of my adult hood. I have had everything done from a filling to multiple dental implants. All of my procedures have been straightforward with zero complications and as little discomfort as possible. Even after my implants I had minimal pain! Before I saw Dr. Taylor I was terrified of dentists, but he put me at ease with his expertise. The hygienists are kind, thorough but gentle, and knowledgeable. The office staff is very friendly and helpful. The office itself is modern and impeccably clean. I highly recommend Martin Tayler dentistry and won’t trust my teeth to any other dentists.
