Porcelain Crowns

Restore your Beautiful Smile with Scottsdale Porcelain Crowns


If you have a damaged, worn or aesthetically-compromised tooth, you may be a good candidate for a porcelain crown. A porcelain crown is a custom-made restoration or “cap” that is placed securely over an existing tooth to restore its appearance and function. Porcelain crowns can also be used to hold dental bridges in place or to improve the appearance of teeth that are badly discolored.


At Scottsdale Dental Arts, we use only the highest quality porcelain crowns and also offer all-gold, porcelain-fused-to-gold and porcelain zirconia crowns which have the strength of all-metal crowns but with the added benefit of looking very natural. As a leading cosmetic dentist in Scottsdale, Dr. McCargar routinely places crowns for his patients who want a very effective way to enhance their smiles and overall oral health.
