If you need the shape, size, strength, or appearance of a tooth improved, Dr. Kerry Olszewski may recommend a dental crown in Mill Creek, Washington. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped, custom-made covering that is placed over a tooth, encasing the entire visible part of the tooth. Dental crowns can be made from porcelain, metal, or a combination of the two. Our dentist may place a dental crown to:

  • Protect a weak tooth from breaking
  • Hold a cracked tooth together
  • Restore a broken or worn-down tooth
  • Cover and support a tooth with a large dental filling
  • Anchor a dental bridge
  • Cover a misshaped or badly stained tooth
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Improve the appearance of a tooth
  • Our dentist may place a dental crown on a primary tooth to:
  • Save a tooth that is too badly decayed to support a dental filling
  • Protect a child’s tooth who is a high risk for decay, especially if the child has a hard time with dental hygiene
  • Decrease the use of general anesthesia on a child who is unable to cooperate during dental treatment
