DENTAL CROWNS, FEDERAL WAY WA
Where damage to a person’s teeth is extreme, and apparently beyond repair, we can use porcelain crowns or porcelain “pasted on gold” crowns to make the smile appear “as new”. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe of dental problems, even permanently replacing missing teeth to offer a complete smile and a functional bite. We are renowned for the quality of our work and the fantastic changes we make for people using this technology. These treatments are used for a long-lasting correction of major dental problems. It is usual for these treatments to last for 20 to 30 years, which is as close to permanent as dental treatment can get.
We are proud to be able to now provide our patients with same day dental crowns!
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO FIT A DENTAL CROWN?
Fitting a dental crown requires at least two visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a temporary crown of either plastic or metal.
On the subsequent visit we will remove the temporary crown, and then fit and adjust the final crown. Finally, we will cement the crown into place and you have a new beautiful looking tooth.

WHAT ARE THE CAPABILITIES OF CROWNS?
Crown and bridgework is a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases or wear and tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. Material used in these repairs is either high-grade porcelain, or porcelain bonded to gold. A higher strength of the porcelain and gold materials is recommended to treat the most serious of dental problems. Where accidental damage has occurred, resulting in lost teeth, or where teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or as the result of old fillings breaking, crowns and/or bridges can be used as a long-term solution.
Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth, which is usually due to hairline cracks in the chewing part of the tooth. Placing crowns on these teeth relieves the pain and allows a return of full dental function for these teeth. In front teeth, older fillings can both weaken the teeth and cause “appearance” problems due to staining or chipping. Porcelain crowns and bridges are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not. In teeth with root canal fillings, crowns can prevent breakage.

PATIENT REVIEW BY CHRIS S.
I was visiting Seattle on business and I lost my front cap in the morning. I required a dentist right away and my hotel suggested I contact your. Not only did your operator find a dentist who took my insurance and was close by, they made sure the dentist was able to see me that same day and they set me up with an appointment. The dentist was extremely friendly, professional and knowledgeable; and the practice was state-of-the-art. Thank you.
