Restore Your Smile with Natural Looking Dental Crowns
If you’ve been hesitant to show off your smile because of damaged, cracked, or worn down teeth, dental crowns from Renton Dental could be your ideal solution.
Dental crowns can be a strong, natural looking way to restore your smile. Made from resin, porcelain, zirconia or metal, dental crowns are precisely shaped to fit your mouth, giving you back the feel and function of your natural tooth.
“Caps” is the name that many people call a crown. It has that name because a crown fits over the tooth like a cap.
Dental crowns are tooth restorations that entirely cover or “cap” a tooth. When placed by the Renton Dental team, a dental crown can restore a tooth’s appearance and shape, and even correct teeth alignment problems.
A crown is used to restore a cracked, damaged, badly decayed or worn tooth. It is also usually placed after root treatment. It helps hold the tooth together, provides strength and protects what’s left of the tooth. It can sometimes be the basis for a dental bridge which provides a replacement (false) tooth where there is a gap. The crown – usually one each side of the replacement tooth – forms the foundation to anchor the false tooth. A crown attaches to an implant to provide the tooth section of this type of restoration.
