Dental Crowns in West Seattle
West Seattle Family Dentistry
When a tooth no longer has enough healthy structure to support a filling, a crown or cap is the best option. A crown covers the entire tooth, holding it together and re-directing the forces down the long axis of the tooth.
In our office, we are able to restore the affected tooth with our same-day, all-ceramic crown. Unlike typical crowns, which require you to wear a temporary crown for a few weeks and return for a second appointment, our same-day or CEREC crowns are created the same day, right in our office. Color matched, metal free, and highly durable, we can deliver the results you need in a single appointment.
CEREC is a CAD/CAM (computer assisted designing and manufacturing) system that uses a state-of-the-art 3D camera to create a digital impression of the tooth, which replaces the goopy traditional impression. Using CEREC software, we will design every detail of your crown with precise accuracy and fit. While you wait, your all-ceramic crown will be fabricated using our onsite milling machine and oven, usually in 30 minutes. Then, we’ll fit and bond the crown.
