Tooth crowns are an ideal solution for covering dental implants or helping to hold dental bridges in place. A strong and natural looking solution for restoring aesthetic beauty to your smile, the cosmetic dentists at Cooley Smiles may also suggest tooth crowns for patients who suffer from smiles marred by teeth that are:
• Worn down
• Weakened by decay or previous fillings
Dental crowns made from porcelain offer the dual benefit of providing superior beauty and restoring lost functionality, making them an ideal choice for many of our patients.
Your Dental Crown Procedure
Your crown procedure takes two office visits to complete. In order for us to provide you with a tooth crown that is both strong and seamlessly matched to your adjacent teeth, we will need to first prepare your tooth to receive the crown.
Dental Crown Materials
During your first visit, Seattle cosmetic dentists Dr. Aaron Cooley and Dr. Brandon Cooley will reshape your tooth and remove any decay in order to allow your dental crown to be placed.
After your tooth has been reshaped, we will take an impression of your tooth to send to our dental lab where your crown will be custom crafted.
At Cooley Smiles, our tooth crowns are created at Northwest Lab, a local company known for producing only the highest quality dental restorations. We offer our patients two types of crowns:
Both of these crowns offer stunning aesthetic results, but vary in function. We will work closely with you to determine which type of tooth crown is most ideally suited to meet your needs based on the location of your tooth crown and the issues being treated.
Once your new tooth crown has been created and matched specifically to the size, shape, and color of your natural teeth, you will come back into the office to have your crown placed.

Dental crownsSometimes referred to as caps, dental crowns are placed over your tooth, encasing your natural tooth in a protective layer of porcelain. Porcelain is stain-resistant, reflects light in the same way as your natural teeth, and provides renewed strength and durability while protecting your tooth from further decay and damage.
We encourage you to learn more about your dental crown options, and contact the cosmetic dentists at Cooley Smiles, serving dental crown patients in Bellevue, Factoria and Issaquah, Washington.
