Porcelain Crowns

Porcelain Crowns

If more than half of your tooth has been restored with a filling, Dentistry NW may deem a crown is necessary for any further restoration. Without adequate support, the tooth may break away around the filling. As a rule, when fillings get larger, teeth become weaker.

That is why a crown is necessary. A crown covers the entire tooth and holds it together. Crowns are used when large fillings wear out or when a crack or break in the tooth compromises the over-all tooth structure.

I avoided seeing a dentist for years because I was so afraid. I’m so grateful I found Dentistry NW. The staff is amazing and were so patient with me and all the challenges my anxiety brings. I’ve never felt more comfortable in a dentists chair. The dental assistant even held my hand while I got my shots! Love this office so much.

These people (especially Brenda) have been tracking my teeth for many years. I appreciate the thoughtful way they do just what is necessary, and at the right time. They even are careful to avoid unnecessary costs.

Dr. Baer has been my dentist for many years, since he began practicing at the old Tacoma Mall location. Though support staff has changed over the years, they have always been friendly and conscientious. All needed dental procedures have been well explained with alternatives given. Hygienists also well appreciated for care they take. State of the art with spirit of family dentistry.
