Do you have a weak, misshapen, or broken tooth? If so, Dr. Ronald C. Russo can help you by providing a dental crown in Scottsdale, Arizona!

A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, and strength, and to improve its appearance. These are beneficial for you if you need to strengthen a weak tooth, restore a broken or worn-down tooth, cover misshaped and discolored teeth, cover a dental implant, or to make a cosmetic alteration. It is also a good option for children who need to save a tooth that has been severely damaged by decay. Crowns may also be beneficial when the children also need to protect a tooth that is vulnerable to infection.

Getting a dental crown typically requires two trips to the dental practice of Ronald C. Russo, DMD. The first visit will usually involve your dentist examining and preparing the tooth by taking a few x-rays and filing your tooth down, allowing the crown to fit. Impressions of the tooth will be sent to a lab and be made for you. The second visit will involve your dentist cementing the crown into place and making sure it is the proper fit. It is common that you will be under local anesthesia during these treatments.
