A dental crown is a restoration that covers your entire tooth above the gumline (as opposed to filling it.) It’s ideal for preserving function on teeth that have been significantly compromised and won’t withstand everyday wear and tear much longer.
When Do I Need A Crown?
Sleep Dentistry of Spokane typically recommends having a crown placed on teeth that have been:
- Treated with a root canal
- Replaced by a dental implant
- Experiencing large, failing restorations
- Severely decayed or fractured
Your crown treatment will typically require two separate visits, but some types of crowns (such as those performed on children) may only require one. When possible, we offer sedation to keep you as comfortable as possible throughout your crown procedure.
