Dental Crowns


A dental crown is a “cap” that is tooth shaped and placed over the top of an existing tooth. Dental crowns are very commonly used to fixed broken or damaged teeth and look and function like your real teeth. Dr. Frank W. Sallustio is a prosthodontist in Sun City West, AZ who specializes in replacing missing teeth and restoring existing teeth through restoraive dentistry.

There a many reasons you might need a crown, especially in the case of a broken tooth. Other reasons might include:
•  A discolored or misshapen tooth
•  Restoring a tooth that has had a root canal
•  Severely worn down teeth due to acid erosion or grinding
•  Replacing a large filling when a dental crown is a better option
•  Extensive decay has weakened a tooth
•  To prevent vulnerable teeth from further cracking or breaking

If your treatment plan requires a dental crown, Dr. Sallustio will ensure it fits tightly over the existing tooth and that it looks and functions like surrounding teeth. No one will know it is not your real tooth!

Receiving a traditional dental crown requires two visits. At the first visit, your tooth is reshaped on the top and sides. An impression is taken to be sent to the lab where the dental crown will be fabricated. A temporary tooth is made and placed over your tooth that is to receive the dental crown. It usually takes two to three weeks for the new dental crown to come back from the lab. At your next appointment, the new crown is permanently cemented and adjusted to fit your bite.
