Crowns Q & A

What are crowns?

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that cover a damaged or weakened tooth. They’re also used to top off dental implants and complete your smile. They function and look just like your natural teeth. 

Dental crowns are often made from tooth-colored materials like porcelain, resin, or ceramics. They can also be made from metal, but these are used only rarely and just on back teeth where they’re out of sight. Porcelain and ceramic crowns are often tinted to match the natural color of your teeth and blend right into your existing smile. 

One-day crowns require the same care as your natural teeth: brushing, flossing, and regular professional cleanings. 

Who is a candidate for a crown?

One-day crowns are a reliable restoration that can improve the look of your smile. The dentists at Issaquah Dental Care recommend crowns to:

  • Protect teeth damaged by injury or decay
  • Cover misshapen or discolored teeth
  • Strengthen teeth weakened by substantially large fillings
  • Protect cracked teeth or teeth in danger of breaking
  • Cover a tooth treated by a root canal
  • Hold a dental bridge in place
  • Finish off dental implants used to replace missing teeth

Dental crowns can correct flaws in your smile to help boost your confidence. Crowns are sturdy and can last a lifetime when cared for with good dental hygiene habits. 

What is it like to get a crown?

Issaquah Dental Care offers CEREC same-day crowns, so your crown creation and placement takes just one visit. You don’t have to endure messy dental impressions and a long wait time while a lab fabricates your restoration.

Your provider uses a specialized scanning device at your appointment  to map out your crown’s design. This is sent to a computer that manufactures your crown in the office. Once the crown is complete, your provider places it on the affected tooth or over a dental implant. They seal the crown sturdily into place and check and refine your bite, so your smile looks and functions naturally.
