Everett Washington Porcelain Crowns
Porcelain crowns aesthetically enhance and restore functionality to severely damaged teeth. For teeth that are badly decayed, broken, or discolored, dental crowns provide needed protection from further damage. Utilizing molds from your teeth, our professional lab fashions world-class porcelain crowns that look and feel like natural teeth. This tooth-shaped covering is secured tightly over your existing tooth for increased comfort, strength, and appearance.

- Restore a weak tooth unable to support a porcelain veneer
- Cover a tooth after a root canal
- Support a dental bridge

Time Efficient- Porcelain crowns can usually be placed within 2 or 3 visits.
How Are Porcelain Crowns Placed?
Tooth Preparation: The best way to decide whether porcelain crowns or porcelain veneers will most effectively restore your smile is to come in to our Burlington WA area office in Mt Vernon for a consultation. If you qualify for porcelain crowns, your teeth will need to be prepared for the added thickness of the restoration. The dentist will carefully shave down your damaged teeth so that the porcelain crowns will fit securely over them.
Temporary Dental Crowns: Impressions of your mouth will be sent to our professional lab where they will craft your dental crowns that closely resembles your original tooth in shape and color. You will be given temporary dental crowns to wear in the meantime that will look and function like natural teeth.
Permanent Dental Crowns: Once your permanent porcelain crowns are ready, we will remove your temporary crowns and set your permanent dental crowns in place. We will adjust and secure them so they fit, function and feel like your natural teeth.
