Restore the function of your tooth without compromising beauty.
OUR PORCELAIN CROWNS
Repair your cracked, broken, or fractured tooth.
A crown, or “cap,” is generally required when a significant portion of a tooth has been destroyed by decay, trauma, or excessive wear. Crowns can also be used for cosmetic purposes to improve your tooth’s color, size, and shape.
Our dental crowns have been specifically designed to protect your damaged tooth while restoring its function. They are also used to top dental implants or to create a dental bridge. Unsightly, old-style, porcelain/metal crowns have been replaced with today’s all-porcelain crowns, which look nearly identical to natural teeth. Plus, they have the added advantage of being strong and very durable.
Our expert Ballard dentists use modern technology to create your custom-made crowns. They take precise impressions of your tooth and work with our partner lab to create breathtaking crowns. Our results are therefore more accurate and long-lasting, enabling you to resume your normal habits and smile with confidence.

Assess & Impress
Our caring dentists first assess your tooth and identify if you are a candidate for a dental crown. If so, we take a few impressions of your teeth and review the crown procedure with you.
During the design phase, our expert team applies the specifications of your crown’s size, shape, color, and fit. This information is then passed onto our dental lab, which produces the finished crown. At this stage, you may be asked to wear a temporary crown so your tooth is protected.
While at the lab, your new crown is constructed using state-of-the-art technology by a team who produces outstanding restorations. Once complete, the finished crown is returned to our practice where your dentist will assess the fit and style.
When happy with the crown, your dentist will prepare the natural teeth and place the crown. If further adjustments are needed, these are made before the crown is bonded into place. We strive to give you the best fit possible so you can enjoy the look and function of a natural smile.
