Restorative & Cosmetic Dentistry in Seattle

What is a crown?

A crown is a restoration that covers, or “caps,” a tooth to restore it to its normal shape and size, strengthening and improving the appearance of a tooth. Crowns are necessary when a tooth or teeth are too badly decayed, broken or cracked to be easily restored with a filling.

If you have severe tooth decay or enamel erosion, a crown can be a good solution. A dental crown is a prosthetic object that is attached to a tooth. Not only it improves the appearance, but it only helps you chew and speak the way you normally do.

In addition, if you grind and clench your teeth so much that it damages your teeth structure, a crown can be an option.

Porcelain crowns do not only re-establish your teeth in function, but they also look just like your natural teeth. Compared to porcelain veneer that only covers the front portion of your teeth, porcelain crown covers the whole tooth, and it’s thicker and stronger.


Procedure

When we have decided to go ahead with a full crown restoration, we will set aside 2-3 appointments for the entire process. Although the majority of crowns are completed in two visits, there is sometimes a need for a third visit to ensure a proper fit.

The procedure begins with the removal of all decay in the tooth. Once we have removed the decay, we will take an impression of the tooth. This impression will be sent to our lab where your new restoration will be crafted. While this new tooth is created, we will provide you with a temporary restoration. Our temporary restorations will resemble your natural teeth so that you can continue with your daily life without worrying about a missing or incompatible tooth.

During your second visit to the office, we will proceed with the placement of your final restoration. This crown will be fitted comfortably into the mouth. We will make every effort to ensure that the new tooth feels exactly like one of your natural teeth. The final step in the process is to cement the crown into your mouth, leaving you with a beautifully restored smile.

Testimonials
Our Patients Love Us

The work is excellent and done quickly. Every step was well explained with the necessary information to make informed decisions. Chair side attention to comfort, concerns (anxiety) and keeping you "in the loop" is exceptional. I feel quite blessed that I was able to chose A Dental & Denture to provide me with a brand new smile.

Excellent work, excellent service. I could not be happier my experience at A Dental. I highly recommend them.

Staff was very professional and accommodating, from the moment you enter the clinic until you leave. My fear of the dentist disappeared because of their warm welcome and cheerful disposition. Dr. Tarleton is undoubtedly highly skilled and showed good patient care by explaining every detail of the procedure that I underwent as well as post-op care and follow up. I had a very pleasant experience so I am highly recommending the whole dental team. If only I can give more than 5 stars---they are a perfect ten!

I am so grateful for finding A Dental & Denture. Everyone is so friendly, kind and I can honestly say they really care about you. I never thought I'd ever say I enjoy going to the dentist but I look forward to seeing the whole staff. A wonderful experience. Angela you are the best! Thank you all for helping me.

Any time I am in dire straits with the curse of my life, my bad teeth, I will go and see Angela, who is always the saving angel: she can help where others can't! I arrived without an appointment, because I had had an accident with my denture the night before (it broke apart) - I did not even have to wait long before Angela could see me, and a few hours later I walked out with everything repaired as perfectly as possible.
Thank you everyone for welcoming me back like an old friend!

These are the friendliest, hospitable, and flexible dentists I've ever been to. They bent over backwards to meet my needs. They also offered complimentary coffee and massage chair to help me relax after getting fillings.
They also guarantee their work and really stand by that. They saw me multiple extra times to answer questions and help me address concerns I had about them. Turns out I just have irritable teeth!
I recommend Dr. Angela and Dr. Tom to anyone with teeth...or who wants teeth!
