The Importance of Quality Dental Crowns

There are many things a dental professional can do to bring back your beautiful smile, and one of the most popular ways is through dental crowns.   

Quality Dental Crowns in Kirkland WA Area

A dental crown is a cap or cover that your dentist places over a tooth that has lost its normal shape, function, and size because it has been damaged or is missing. A crown also protects your tooth and improves the way your mouth functions and looks since the dental crowns restore the proper shape of your mouth as well as bring back your smile. Your dentist in Kirkland, Washington, can help you by restoring your smile with quality dental crowns. 

What Do Dental Crowns Do?

Dental crowns can resolve several different types of problems with your teeth, including becoming the replacement for a missing tooth or teeth and bridging the tooth with your other teeth for a uniform and normal look and function. A dental crown can also help to make a tooth with a large filling become more sturdy and stable since it acts as a support for the tooth, and a dental crown can protect weakened teeth from breaking. A dental crown can also restore a tooth that is already broken or correct a tooth that is discolored or misshapen.

What Are Dental Crowns Made Of?

Dental crowns are created from several different types of materials, including ceramic material, porcelain, metal alloys, porcelain fused to metal, or composite resin. Many people have issues with the metal crowns, which are used quite a bit, but not by the staff at Kingsgate Dental in Kirkland, Washington.

Kingsgate Dental is headed by Dr. Ann Kelley, only uses all-porcelain or ceramic restorations when it comes to restoring natural teeth. She does not place crowns that are made out of metals because many patients have metal allergies or sensitivities. Also, porcelain or ceramic dental crowns tend to be less irritating to the person’s gums and will not inflame them. Also, they are more transparent, which means which she takes X-rays of your teeth in the future, she will be able to determine if your natural tooth is suffering from any type of decay, so there will not be major issues in the future.

 - 5 Star Rating Review I have gone to Kingsgate Dental for about two years now, and every experience has been excellent. Dr. Kelley is very knowledgeable and very thorough with her analysis of the issues that I have faced with my teeth. The staff is polite and always happy to answer any questions that I have and give me pointers to improve my dental hygiene. I will continue to go to Kingsgate Dental/Dr Kelley for years to come.

 - 5 Star Rating Review By Kathy W Dr. Kelley and her staff are a treasure. State of the art equipment, As a past Dental Administrator for a very large practice in Lynnwood, am soo happy to know that Dr. Kelley, her hygenists who have been there for over 20 years, are bar none the most indepth and through a cleaning as you would ever find. I have never felt more then a slight prick when getting novocaine. Between numbing the gum and gentle procedure they also offer nitroux, for us real scaredy cats. Music, neck pillows and blankets all make the experience truly enjoyable. I had gone too many years neglecting my teeth and found through Tammy, my hygenist and Dr. Kelley they were able to put together a plan to save the teeth they could and design partials for the ones I could not afford to save. I am a small business owner with no insurance and yet they came up with a plan that I am so happy with. I am without any infection, so much healthier and the partials Dr. Kelley designed are like a second skin. From Jackie and MaryAnn at the front desk to the assistants, hygenists and Dr. Kelley you will be in professional and caring hands. I recommend to all my family and friends.
