Crown Restoration in Seattle
If you’re dealing with significant tooth decay, major trauma to a tooth or the need for a dental bridge, you may need to have a dental crown. Dental crown restoration goes beyond a dental filling or dental onlay by covering most of the tooth. Crowns consist of a cap that is placed over a tooth to restore its appearance, strength, and shape.
Here at Theron Baker DDS in Seattle, our experienced dental professionals will work with you to determine whether a crown is the right choice to restore your tooth. We always aim to provide you with the care and attention you deserve, working to make your entire dental experience as comfortable as possible.
What are dental crowns?
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are used to restore teeth to their prior strength, shape, and appearance. The crown is placed on top of the existing surface and bonded to the tooth, fully covering the previously visible portion of the tooth.
There is a wide range of dental crown types available, including stainless steel, metals like gold or other alloys, ceramic, porcelain, resin or porcelain fused to metal. The different types of materials all have different advantages and disadvantages. If you need a crown, our experienced dental team at Theron Baker DDS will talk with you about the different materials available and help you determine the best choice for you.
When do you need a crown?
For many tooth problems such as mild tooth decay, fillings or dental onlays provide a comprehensive solution. But when tooth decay expands to take a significant portion of the tooth or you’re dealing with greater problems like cracked teeth, crowns may be necessary.
Some situations that may require a dental crown include:
- Significant tooth decay
- Cracked or broken teeth
- Teeth that are severely discolored or misshapen
- Teeth with large fillings that are weak
- Dental bridges
- Root-canal treated teeth
We place crowns in a single appointment with CEREC.
