Dental Crowns in Seattle, WA
Joy had a secret desire: to laugh with abandon, smile with ease, and dazzle people with her beautiful, perfect teeth. Unfortunately, she had a large silver filling in her tooth that was broken.
Not only was Joy worried that her discolored tooth was unsightly, but it bothered her tongue all day long. She couldn’t eat or drink without feeling irritation. And then there was the matter of her confidence–it was gone. She felt extremely self-conscious around others and barely cracked a smile, for fear of drawing attention to her mouth.
What Are Dental Crowns?
At Aurora Dental Care, Joy could find relief again with a beautiful dental crown. Dental crowns are excellent options for protecting damaged teeth from further harm or decay. For Joy, a tooth-colored covering placed just over the original structure of her tooth was the perfect solution to her smile. The best part–crowns last many years, enough time for Joy to confidently forget she ever had a restoration!

Do I Need a Dental Crown?
Great question! Have you had a broken tooth recently? When a tooth loses its proper natural shape, adjacent teeth will shift or tip, changing the way the top and bottom rows of your teeth meet together. This sudden difference in the bite can lead to many other complex or costly dental problems, including gum disease or teeth grinding.
However, you don’t necessarily need to have a broken tooth in order to need a crown. Here are the different situations where you will want a crown over a tooth.
Previous Endodontic Treatment
If a tooth has had a root canal procedure, the filling placed afterwards is not sufficient to withstand the force of chewing. It may need a crown to unite all the walls together so the tooth will move in unison during chewing. The crown helps prevent tooth fracture and allows you to enjoy the use of it much longer – sometimes decades!
Perfect For Smile Makeovers
If you don’t like the shape or color of one or more of your teeth, a dental crown or veneer can be placed on the tooth to make it blend in with your natural smile. Veneers are similar to dental crowns, but instead of surrounding the entire tooth they are only placed on the front of the tooth to improve the overall appearance of the smile.
What’s So Great About Dental Crowns?
Crowns cover all the weak walls of the teeth to prevent fracturing and restore all functional abilities you didn’t have before: Joy is now able to eat her favorite foods with ease, speak clearly and laugh freely with others– everything she desired!
