To Our Valued Patients at Surprise Smiles,

Welcome! We are open, looking forward to seeing returning patients, accepting new patients, and operating under normal business hours! The Arizona Department of Health Services (AZDS) is still not recommending any type of closures or modification in hours. We will continue to monitor information coming from both the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and AZDHS and keep you apprised of any changes or updates. We will stay on top of this information and bring it to you as soon as possible through our website, email, and social media.

As we continue to navigate through the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, our dentists and dental team want to assure you that we are continuing to do our best to make sure it a priority that we are following the latest health and safety guidelines from the CDC, specifically as they relate to the dental industry. We value keeping our patients and staff members safe and comfortable.

As part of our daily standard health and safety protocols, our office follows ‘Universal Precautions’ in order to protect our patients and our staff. These are precautions we have always taken, and are not new. By taking ‘universal precautions’ means we always assume that anyone could potentially be carrying a contagious and dangerous disease. We therefore follow strict guidelines to prevent the transmission of any potential disease, be it COVID-19 (Coronavirus), hepatitis, tuberculosis, HIV, or any other disease. This has been a standard of care we follow, per the CDC, in regard to blood borne pathogens.

These measures include:
•  strict hand washing protocols
•  use of (single use) disposable protective equipment and barriers
•  thorough disinfection of exposed or potentially exposed surfaces after every patient visit
•  disinfection and high-heat steam sterilization of instruments and routine monitoring of sterilization verification
•  continued education on infection control

•  disinfecting common surface areas every 30 minutes
•  providing hand sanitizer in common areas
•  screening everyone who enters our offices based on CDC recommendations
•  offering preprocedural mouth rinse

As state and national health and safety regulations change and evolve during these times, Surprise Smiles is dedicated to monitoring and evaluating our dental practice and office space for any potential risks as we serve our patients and community. We strive to maintain an approach to our dentistry services that is both safe and beneficial to everyone we serve.

We strive to provide a safe, healthy, comfortable, and relaxed environment for everyone that comes into our dental office. We follow the American Dental Association’s Update to Office Procedures During COVID-19 in regard to safe office procedures, workplace hazards, and making decisions for best office practices. We stay informed on recent information given to dentists in this regard, as well as keeping up to date with any changes recommended by the CDC.

Please let us know if you have any questions in regard to our health and safety protocols here at Surprise Smiles. We recognize that it can be challenging during these unprecedented times of COVID-19. We all want to get back to our normal lives, and we will be able to do so, in a safe, wise, and healthy manner. We will be happy to answer any questions that you may have in regard to our dental practice health and safety protocols, cleaning, and disinfecting procedures we follow.

Thank you for continuing to be a valued patient here at Bradshaw Family Dental. We look forward to continuing to serve you and your dental needs through the various services we provide for you, from preventive dentistry, restorative dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, pediatric dentistry, sedation dentistry, dental implants and more!

Dental Crown
Prescott Valley, AZ

Dental procedure being performed at Bradshaw Family Dental in Prescott Valley, AZLife comes at us fast. It is easy to get so caught up in the moment that we miss mundane things like dental appointments. When oral health gets pushed aside due to the rigors of everyday life, sometimes we get lucky and nothing bad happens to our teeth. Sometimes our teeth pay the price. When your teeth suffer, have no fear – dental crowns can help restore them!

Why would I need a dental crown?

When your tooth becomes so decayed or damaged that it is unable to continue functioning as a stable tooth it will need to be replaced with a crown. There are many factors that contribute to a tooth reaching the point where it needs to be replaced with a crown. Neglect of your oral hygiene is only one of many possible contributing factors.

What is a dental crown?

There are two main parts of your tooth – the root (below the gums) and the crown (above the gums). When the crown of your tooth has been damaged to the point that it cannot continue functioning we can replace it with a dental crown.

Essentially, we reshape your tooth by removing the damage or decay. Once this is done, we can place a custom-made artificial crown over what remains of your natural tooth. This artificial crown will look and act just as your normal, healthy tooth would.

Dental Crown Procedure

Traditionally, it requires two visits to our office to receive a dental crown. The first visit consists of us measuring your tooth and making an impression of it. We will send the measurements to a dental laboratory to be fabricated. We will also prepare your tooth for the crown. However, we are proud to now offer same day dental crowns, where we can fabricate your permanent crown directly in our office.

Tooth preparation for a dental crown involves shaving portions of the enamel off of the tooth - the goal of this is twofold. We need to remove any damage or decay present on the tooth to stop it’s spread within the tooth. The other reason we remove enamel from the tooth is so that we can shape it in such a way that it will accept the crown.

Once the tooth has been shaped we will affix a temporary crown to it with temporary cement. You will be able to use your temporary crown almost exactly like your normal tooth. Just remember that it is a temporary crown, and particularly chewy or hard foods should be avoided because it can come off.

Once we receive the permanent crown from the dental laboratory it will be time for your second visit to our office. During this visit we will remove the temporary crown and place the permanent. The permanent crown will be attached to your tooth with long lasting dental cement.

With proper care and treatment of your new dental crown you can expect it to last a long time. It is normal for crowns to last at least ten years before needing to be replaced and they can easily last longer.

Please call us today at (928) 277-0076 to schedule your next visit. We look forward to seeing your smile!
