What Are Dental Crowns?

Often, individual teeth that have significant tooth decay or damage need a crown to strengthen the area. Our state-of-the-art office proudly provides these dental restorations to help protect and cover the visible portion of a damaged tooth while creating a more natural shape and size. Dental crowns are custom-made to blend evenly with the surrounding teeth, and we may use them to treat fractured teeth, dental cavities, odd-shaped teeth, or other types of damage. For patients with missing teeth, dental restorations can also help connect a bridge or dental implants. Schedule a treatment consultation with our team at Dental@888 to find out if a custom-made crown can improve the health and aesthetic of your smile.

Am I A Candidate For Dental Crowns?

Seattle, WA individuals might need to have a dental crown to repair several oral health concerns and enhance the proper function and aesthetics of a tooth. Some of the more prevalent reasons for requiring a dental crown procedure are:

  • Broken or cracked teeth
  • Eroded or worn tooth structure
  • Teeth that are discolored or misshapen
  • Significant dental cavities
  • Teeth with large, failing fillings
  • Teeth treated with endodontic therapy
  • Dental bridges for replacing missing teeth

At Dental@888, custom dental crowns are utilized for teeth located anywhere in the mouth, and may be created from high-end ceramic or other types of aesthetic materials, porcelain fused to metal, or a precious metal (such as gold). Our expert dental team will assess your tooth or teeth and help you select the right type of crown for your oral health needs and aesthetic preferences.

How Do Dental Crowns Work?

Generally, the crown process takes place over two phases. During your initial visit, one of our qualified dental experts will numb your tooth and gums and might incorporate sedation dentistry services to improve your comfort level if you desire. After removing the affected area, we make an impression of the treated tooth to send to a dental laboratory, which creates your personalized crown. While we develop your permanent crown, patients wear a temporary one on the tooth to maintain function and a natural-looking appearance. You should return to Dental@888 in about 7 – 14 days afterward to have the temporary dental restoration taken off and your new crown adhered to your tooth or dental implant.

Dental Crowns FAQ

How long do dental crowns last?
A dental crown can last up to a decade or more when you maintain your dental cleaning appointments and brush and floss twice daily. If any damage occurs, it is usually treated the same way as a regular tooth.

When can I eat after a dental crown placement?
Waiting one hour or more after your appointment is ideal. This gives the crown time to settle without any disturbance. If you need dental crowns in Seattle, WA, reach out to our dental team to schedule an appointment.

How long does it take for a dental cap to settle?
It's common for your cap to feel bulky following the procedure. But they should settle within two weeks. If you still experience any discomfort after two weeks, schedule a follow-up so we can find the issues and decide what works best for you.
