When it comes to restoring cracked, damaged or missing teeth, the dental crown is the most versatile general dentistry option. Dental crowns are used for repairing cracked or broken teeth or as part of a complete tooth restoration with dental implants or bridges. At First Smile Family Dental, we offer beautiful options in dental crowns at our dental center in Federal Way, WA.
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped restorations made from porcelain, composite or metal that fit over natural teeth. Dental crowns are designed from a mold of the tooth. With new technology, a 3D impression can be made digitally and sent to a dental lab where the crown is created. Once bonded in place, a dental crown can last for many years as a natural-appearing and functional tooth restoration.
Restore Cracked or Damaged Teeth
When a tooth is broken, cracked or damaged, a dental crown can be used to restore the tooth. Dental crowns protect a weakened tooth structure and provide a strong chewing surface for the tooth. If you injure your tooth or you have extensive dental work performed like a root canal, a dental crown may be recommended to restore the tooth. If the damage is only on one portion of the tooth, dental inlays or onlays may be recommended for restoration.
If you have a cracked, broken or damaged tooth, dental crowns are options for restoring the tooth. Our dental team at First Smile Family Dental offers quality dental restorations that look natural and are made to last for many years. Contact our office in Federal Way, WA, to schedule your visit for a dental crown consultation.
