Porcelain Dental Crowns Vancouver, WA
A durable, long-lasting, and natural looking restoration
While minor tooth damage and small cavities can be treated with a filling, advanced decay might necessitate a dental crown to restore oral health.
Dental crowns from Pickens Family Dentistry replicate the function and appearance of your natural tooth. Designed around your mouth, dental crowns are made from porcelain and blend in perfectly with your natural smile.
Contact us today to meet with Dr. Pickens and see if a dental crown is right for you.
Benefits to dental crowns
Dental Crowns at Pickens Family Dentistry
At Pickens Family Dentistry, we believe in treating the root cause of your oral health issues. For patients suffering from advanced tooth decay, it will always be our first priority to keep as much of your natural tooth structure as possible.
Depending on the severity of the decay, Dr. Pickens might recommend a crown on its own, or a root canal or dental implant. For dental implants and root canals, your dental crown will be the final step of the tooth replacement process.
When you come to our office for an exam, we’ll always begin by completing a comprehensive examination and use our high-tech diagnostic tools to ensure an accurate diagnosis. From there, we’ll lay out our recommendation and answer any questions.
Our Dental Crowns Process
A mold will be made of your tooth and surrounding teeth to ensure your new restoration will be a perfect fit.
This mold is sent to a lab, where a custom crown will be professionally milled.
A temporary crown will be placed while your crown is crafted.
In 2 weeks, we’ll schedule an appointment to have your crown fitted and placed, making minor adjustments as needed to ensure a perfect fit.
Dental Crowns FAQs
How long do crowns last?
With proper care, your porcelain crown will last between 10-15 years, potentially longer when staying on top of preventive dental care and following aftercare instructions.
How will I need to care for my crown?
Crowns need to be cared for the same as any other tooth in your mouth — brushing twice a day, flossing once a day, and attending twice-yearly preventive dental care appointments.
