Dental Crowns

At Spokane Dental, we understand the importance of preserving and enhancing your smile. Dental crowns serve as a vital tool in our restorative dentistry services, allowing us to address various dental concerns and restore the function and appearance of your teeth. In this blog, we will delve into the significance of dental crowns and how they can benefit your oral health.

Understanding Dental Crowns:

Dental crowns, also known as "caps," are customized coverings that are placed over damaged, decayed, or aesthetically compromised teeth. At Spokane Dental, we offer dental crowns made from high-quality materials, tailored to seamlessly blend with your natural teeth, ensuring a natural and aesthetically pleasing result.

Preserving Dental Health:

When a tooth is significantly decayed, damaged, or weakened, a dental crown can effectively protect it from further deterioration. By encapsulating the affected tooth, the crown provides structural support, preventing fractures and protecting it from potential infections. This preservation of dental health is essential in maintaining a strong and functional smile for years to come.

Restoring Functionality:

At Spokane Dental, we commonly utilize dental crowns to restore the functionality of compromised teeth. Whether it's a fractured tooth, a large filling, or a root canal-treated tooth, a dental crown can help in restoring the ability to chew and speak comfortably, ensuring that your oral functions remain unimpeded.

Improving Aesthetics:

In addition to their functional benefits, dental crowns also play a crucial role in enhancing the aesthetics of your smile. Whether it’s a discolored, misshapen, or unevenly spaced tooth, a carefully crafted dental crown can restore symmetry and visual appeal, resulting in a more confident and radiant smile.

The Process:

The process of receiving a dental crown at Spokane Dental is streamlined and effective.

Step 1: Evaluation and Consultation

When you come to Spokane Dental for a dental crown, Dr. Smith and our team will begin by carefully evaluating your tooth that needs the crown. We'll take the time to explain the treatment plan, answer any questions you may have, and ensure that you feel informed and comfortable every step of the way.

Step 2: Preparing the Tooth

Next, we prepare the tooth by removing any decay or damage. Don't worry; we always make sure you're completely numb and comfortable before we start. Once the tooth is prepared, we take digital impressions to create a custom-fit crown that will blend seamlessly with your natural smile.

Step 3: Temporary Crown

While your permanent crown is being crafted in our trusted dental lab, we'll place a temporary crown to protect your tooth. This temporary crown will help you maintain normal oral functions until your next visit.

Step 4: Final Placement

Once your custom crown is ready, you'll return to Spokane Dental for the final placement. Dr. Smith and our team will ensure that the crown fits perfectly, matches your natural teeth, and feels comfortable in your mouth. Our goal is to make sure you leave our office with a smile that you're proud to show off!

Step 5: Post-Care Instructions

After your crown is securely in place, we'll provide you with detailed post-care instructions. It's essential to follow these instructions to ensure the longevity and durability of your new dental crown. Remember, we're always here to answer any questions or concerns you may have along the way.
