Dental Crowns

Are missing teeth affecting your confident smile? Are damaged or decaying teeth causing you pain?

A dental crown is a custom-fitted prosthetic that can restore your damaged tooth or complete your smile.

Dr. Scott Azari can expertly fit and place your dental crowns in his Port St. Lucie, FL, office to get you back to smiling confidently.

What Is a Dental Crown?


A dental crown is a custom-fitted cap that covers a tooth down to the gumline. Traditional crowns are used to restore damaged or decaying teeth. If your dentist is unable to save a tooth or you're already missing a tooth, a crown can be used to top a dental implant. Implants are small posts that are embedded into the jaw. The lifelike restorations even have applications in cosmetic dentistry.

How Is a Dental Crown Placed?

The natural tooth is first reshaped to accommodate the crown. The dental crown is custom-made to fit securely and comfortably over the remaining natural tooth.

What Types of Dental Problems Can Crowns Fix?

We will determine whether you need a crown during a free consultation at our Port St. Lucie office. There, our dentist will review the health of your teeth and gums and discuss your concerns and goals.

Damage or Decay

A dental crown can restore and protect a damaged or decaying tooth before it leads to more serious oral health concerns.

Root Canal

If a decaying tooth needs to be treated with a root canal, a dental crown can be placed to protect the remaining healthy tissue.

Missing Teeth

A crown can replace a single missing tooth with the support of a dental implant

The Benefits Of Dental Crowns

Increased Confidence

A damaged, decaying, or missing tooth can impact the appearance of your smile. A dental crown is indistinguishable from your surrounding teeth, giving you a natural, beautiful-looking smile.

Restored Bite

Severely damaged or missing teeth can cause your bite to become misaligned. This can lead to more serious issues like temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). A dental crown can realign your bite and take the added stress off of your TMJs.

Improved Oral Health

If left untreated, a decaying tooth can cause infection, pain, and tooth loss. A dental crown can prevent your decaying tooth from progressing into a more serious oral health concern.

Restore a Tooth With a Dental Crown

Dr. Azari explains how a dental crown can benefit patients who have undergone root canal therapy or have experienced trauma or other damage to a tooth. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cover that protects the tooth structure and acts as a prosthetic tooth. A dental crown can also be paired with a dental implant to replace a single missing tooth.

The Procedure Placing Your Dental Crown

The first step is to request a free consultation at our Port St. Lucie, FL, office. There, our dentist will evaluate your oral health and determine if crowns are the dental solution for you.

We use only the most lifelike, long-lasting materials for our crowns.

Tooth Reshaping

To begin, our dentist will start by removing the damaged portion of your tooth. Then he will reshape the remaining, healthy tooth to secure the dental crown.

Crown Preparation

Our dentist will take a digital impression of your teeth using the iTero® scanner. This scanner provides quick, colorized images of your teeth. From these impressions, your custom-fitted dental crown can be made.

Temporary Crown

Your permanent crowns will need to be fabricated at an off-site lab, which can take around two weeks. During that time, you will be fitted with a temporary crown to help protect the reshaped tooth. Your dentistry professional will give you a list of foods to avoid while wearing your temporary crown.

Permanent Crown

Once the crown has been made, you will return to our Port St. Lucie office for placement. Your permanent crown is secured to your natural tooth using dental cement.

Smile Restoration

There is no downtime after the permanent crown is placed. You can leave our office smiling with confidence.

Dental Crown vs. Dental Bridge What's the Difference?

A traditional dental crown is an effective solution to repair a single tooth that does not need to be extracted. A dental bridge is used to fill the space left by a missing tooth. A traditional dental bridge is secured by the surrounding teeth (abutment teeth) so unlike an implant-supported dental crown, is not self-supporting.
