Dental Crown Treatment in Tucson, AZ Has Never Been A Safer, More Comfortable Experience for Patients

If you have teeth that need protection or have just undergone dental work and need to be capped, a dental crown is a great solution. Dr. William Taylor and the team at Martin Taylor Dentistry in Tucson, AZ welcome you in for a visit!

Simple Procedure

If you have never received a crown, you may think the procedure is intense and complicated. You will be surprised to learn just how easy and minimally invasive it is to receive a crown. Once the enamel of the tooth receiving the crown has been cleaned and any infected or damaged parts of the tooth are removed, the tooth will be shaped so that a crown can be applied.

Once work on the tooth has been completed, the crown will be molded from porcelain in a dental lab where it will be made to match the shape and color of the tooth it is covering. This process typically takes about two weeks to be completed. You will come in for your follow up visit, during which the crown will be bonded to your tooth with dental cement.

How is a dental crown placed?

When you do a dental crown at Martin Taylor Dentistry, it is two appointments. When you come in for the first appointment, we will numb you, shape, and clean the tooth for a crown.

The shaping for a crown means you reduce that tooth all the way around, making the tooth a bit shorter. Then the crown can fit over around that tooth, protect it and make it healthier.

After we shape it, we take an impression and then put a temporary crown on it. So when you leave, you have a temporary crown on, and the tooth is protected.

You come back for your second appointment, usually a couple of weeks later, and we place the new crown on. We first numb you up, take off the old crown and then place the new crown.

What are the materials used for dental crowns?

We use Emax crowns, which are very aesthetic and look great. For the back, when you have a heavier bite, we use Zirconia crowns. They are super strong, all-white porcelain, and last a very long time.

What is the procedure for maintaining a dental crown?

When you do a crown, you restore or bring the tooth back to its ideal shape and size. So you maintain a crown, just like you maintain a tooth.

You floss and brush it regularly. So if you have a tooth that needs to be protected and restored, you are an ideal candidate for a crown.

Feel free to give us a call to learn more about dental crowns.

Pain Relief

In many cases, a dental crown is applied following some other dental procedure such as a deep cavity or root canal. When you face extensive decay in a tooth or have a fracture or chip, constant pain may be your reality. Once the underlying issue has been addressed (root canal, appropriate fillings, etc.), the rest of the tooth may be more susceptible to future damage or there may not be a lot of tooth remaining once the decay has been drilled away and will need protecting. A porcelain crown will protect your tooth from further damage and reduce pain and sensitivity.


Porcelain is a long-lasting and strong material used in the construction of crowns used by Dr. Taylor. The strength of the porcelain combined with regular care (daily brushing and flossing) and examinations/cleanings will help a porcelain crown last somewhere between 15 and 30 years.

To learn more about the benefits offered by porcelain crowns, call Martin Taylor Dentistry at (520) 600-6925 for an appointment.

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.
