If you have a damaged tooth, you may need a dental crown or cap. Dr. Bowyer is glad to provide this service to his patients in the Vancouver, WA area. Crowns may be needed if a tooth has had a large filling or multiple fillings or if a tooth is fractured or about to fracture. Dental crowns not only fix damaged tooth structure – they can also improve tooth shape or alignment for a better cosmetic appearance.
Crowns come in many different material types. Gold, porcelain fused to metal, and all porcelain crowns are the most common variations. The ideal type of crown will vary by the needs of the patient – Dr. Bowyer can recommend the most appropriate crown type for you. Crowns are also fixed, non-removable prosthetic devices. They are cemented onto existing teeth or other permanent dental work, and can only be removed by a dentist.
If you are interested in getting crowns or caps, set up a free consultation with Dr. Bowyer today. Call our office at (360) 253-2640 or use the form to schedule your appointment.
