What are Crowns?
Dental crowns — sometimes called “caps” — are a full-coverage restoration that protect and stabilize teeth with significant structural damage. A crown covers all visible portions of your tooth, up to the gumlines. They’re used when a filling isn’t adequate or would break under normal biting forces.
Today’s dynamic crowns are crafted from durable ceramics, which provide optimal function as well as aesthetic results. When you smile, other people shouldn’t be able to differentiate your crown from the teeth adjacent to it. With the talented Dr. Vo’s work, you can rest assured no one will ever know!
Reasons You May Need a Dental Crown
There are a number of different situations where a crown is preferred. In most cases it will involve conditions like:
- Dental implant restoration (for single missing teeth)
- After a root canal procedure
- Severe tooth decay
- Excessive enamel wear
- Cracked Teeth
- To replace a large, worn-out metal filling
- If a tooth is too damaged for a dental veneer
Your Seattle Dental Crown Treatment
Our premier cosmetic & restorative dentists incorporate the most advanced techniques possible, delivering an exceptional outcome for each patient. When you arrive for your crown appointment, we’ll ensure that you’re comfortable. After numbing your tooth with a small amount of local anesthetic, we’ll remove the damaged structures and prep it for a crown to comfortably slip into place. Then we’ll take an impression and fit a temporary crown over your tooth.
Your permanent ceramic crown is designed by hand, a process that takes about two weeks to complete. When it’s ready, we’ll have you come back to try it in, make any minor adjustments, then permanently bond it in place.
