Dental Crowns Vancouver WA

Cracks, fractures, and chippings increase the likelihood of tooth loss. Fortunately, you can save your tooth before it is too late. When a significant amount of tooth is on the verge of becoming lost from decay or trauma, dental crowns might be the ultimate restoration option. Our dentist at Thurston Oaks Dental can resolve these dental issues and restore your radiant smile with quality dental crowns in Vancouver WA.

What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped dental cap used to cover a fractured or weak tooth. It fortifies and restores damaged or decayed teeth, allowing them to function normally again. Teeth crowns also top dental implants and secure dental bridges in place, making them ideal for most cosmetic dentistry procedures.

Types of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns vary based on the material or substance used to make them. We offer customized teeth crowns made from porcelain, resin, ceramic, or metal. Sometimes we may fuse porcelain crowns with metal to produce a durable, natural-looking tooth crown.

The appropriate dental crown depends on your unique oral needs and personal preferences. We also consider the amount of damage and your tooth size to create the perfect dental cap for optimal oral health.

When are Dental Crowns Necessary?

You may require teeth crowns in various situations. While they are primarily for restoring and protecting damaged teeth, you might need them with other dental procedures. We often use dental crowns to secure a dental bridge in place. We may also use them to replace missing teeth after getting dental implants. The dental caps cover the implants forming your new prosthetic teeth. Teeth crowns are also suitable for cosmetic restorations and root canal procedures.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

Dental caps are distinguished for their numerous versatile uses. They can help fix damaged teeth, replace missing teeth, and aid other dental procedures. They secure your oral structural integrity and protect your teeth from deteriorating further.

Porcelain crowns mimic your natural teeth, making it impossible for others to notice you have undergone a dental procedure. You can choose between different materials for your dental crowns based on your aesthetic preferences and unique oral needs.

Steps Involved in Crowning a Damaged Tooth

The first visit involves a comprehensive dental exam. Our dentist will assess your fractured tooth to determine if you qualify for dental crown placement.

After an exam, we will administer local anesthesia to numb the area and make you comfortable. The next step involves measuring and reshaping your tooth to fit your new dental cap. We will take an imprint of your teeth and use it to make your dental crown in the office or send it to a dental lab for molding.

Creating a dental crown takes a few weeks. As such, our dentist will place a temporary crown on your tooth to protect it.

The next visit entails crowning the damaged tooth. This step is straightforward as it involves removing and replacing the temporary crown with your new dental cap.
