Is your tooth structurally compromised? Dental crowns from our Renton, WA dentist office are a tried and true solution for restoring your troubled tooth and filling out the appearance of your smile. At Renton Smile Dentistry, we often recommend a dental crown to support a root canal treated tooth, or to top off a dental implant.
What Is A Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “tooth cap” made of porcelain, that is placed over a tooth to help restore its shape, strength and size. A dental crown can be the right choice to recreate the appearance and function of a tooth damaged by decay or trauma.
The crown replaces the external portion of the tooth down the the gums in order to help preserve the appearance of the patient’s smile. Our Renton dental team may recommend a crown to:
- Cover a dental implant
- Restore a broken or worn tooth
- Protect a tooth, weakened from decay, from breaking
- Hold a dental bridge in place
- Cover a misshapen or discolored tooth
- Support a tooth with a large filling
- Reinforce a tooth treated using root canal therapy
Is A Dental Crown The Right Choice For Me?
Most people are ideal candidates for a crown. This dental procedure can improve the appearance of a damaged tooth while also restoring the tooth’s natural function. After a dental crown is placed, most patients are able to enjoy chewing without pain and be able to smile with confidence.
To ensure your dental crown is comfortable and matches your natural teeth, Dr. Kaur uses our iTero intraoral digital scanner to create an accurate digital impression of your smile! There's no need for messy, uncomfortable impressions when we can use iTero technology to render a detailed 3D image of your smile.
How Long Will A Crown Last?
Most crowns last between 5 and 15 years. It depends on the wear and tear the dental crown is exposed to and if a patient takes care of the crown with regular brushing and flossing. A crown should be treated just like your natural teeth, so regular cleanings and checkups at Renton Smile Dentistry are important!
