Crowns

A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface, restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens the tooth structure when filling materials cannot offer an acceptable long-term restorative solution. ]

Sometimes several crowns can be connected together to stabilize loose teeth. Crowns can also be used to change the shape, color, and function of teeth aesthetically, resulting in a beautiful, natural smile. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Schmidt to determine if crowns are right for you. Give us a call at 206-242-6660 to get started.

Crowns in Seattle & Burien can be made of precious metal, porcelain, or a combination of both. In all cases, they strengthen and protect the tooth. Dr. Schmidt utilizes a custom shading process to create a perfect match to the neighboring teeth. The crown is permanently cemented only after the shade has been approved by the patient.

A crown may be recommended for:

  • Aesthetic enhancement
  • Broken or fractured teeth
  • Decayed teeth
  • Fractured fillings
  • Large fillings
  • A tooth with a root canal
  • I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the improvement Dr. Schmidt made for me.
  • I especially love the way my teeth look; not my crowns, my teeth, because these crowns do not look like crowns. No one thinks I have crowns.
  • My tooth looks better now than it did before I broke it.
