Dental Crown Dentist In Seattle
Many dental practices offer porcelain crowns, but few deliver the knowledge and expertise in dental crown design and placement of Seattle cosmetic dentist Dr. Brian McKay and his team at Advanced Cosmetic Implant & Laser Dentistry.
What is a Dental Crown?
The dental crown is the portion of your tooth above the gumline. Porcelain dental crowns are beautiful restorations that can protect and preserve your remaining tooth structure after decay or damage while giving you an aesthetically pleasing solution for your smile.
Dental Crown Design
To prepare and place a tooth-colored porcelain dental crown, Dr. McKay takes many factors into consideration including your lifestyle, bite function, face shape, skin tone and the overall health of our mouth and surrounding teeth. He works directly with master ceramists at one of the best dental laboratories in the U.S. to custom-design your porcelain crown.
When it’s time to install a dental crown, Dr. McKay first removes all injured or decayed portions of the tooth. Then, the missing portion of the tooth is replaced with the porcelain crown, shaped to conform to your bite.
Temporary Dental Crown
A temporary dental crown is made to protect the tooth until your custom porcelain crown is ready. At your next visit to our Seattle dentist office, the temporary crown is removed and the porcelain crown is put in place.
Dental Crown Replacement
If you have an older crown, you may notice an unsightly dark gray or gold line near your gum line. Dr. McKay and his team use state-of-the-art crowning techniques and technologies to eliminate that old gray or gold line and restore the tooth to its most natural, beautiful appearance.
