Dental Crowns

Dental Restorations

Most dentistry looks like dentistry. Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We replace existing crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth.

Where damage to a person’s teeth is extreme, and apparently beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain “pasted on gold” crowns to make the smile appear “as new”. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe of dental problems, even permanently replacing missing teeth to offer a complete smile and a functional bite. We are renowned for the quality of our work and the fantastic changes we make for people using this technology. These treatments are used for a long-lasting correction of major dental problems. It is usual for these treatments to last for 20 to 30 years, which is as close to permanent as dental treatment can get.

How long does it take to fit a dental crown?

Fitting a crown requires at least two visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a temporary crown of either plastic or metal.

On the subsequent visit we will remove the temporary crown, and then fit and adjust the final crown. Finally, we will cement the crown into place and you have a new beautiful looking tooth.

Key Benefits of Dental Crowns

  • Replaces missing teeth
  • Offers support to misshapen teeth or badly broken teeth
  • Looks completely natural
  • Fixes “smile” and functional chewing problems

What are the capabilities of crowns?

Crown and bridgework is a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases or wear and tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. Material used in these repairs is either high-grade porcelain, or porcelain bonded to gold. A higher strength of the porcelain and gold materials is recommended to treat the most serious of dental problems. Where accidental damage has occurred, resulting in lost teeth, or where teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or as the result of old fillings breaking, crowns and/or bridges can be used as a long-term solution.

Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth, which is usually due to hairline cracks in the chewing part of the tooth. Placing crowns on these teeth relieves the pain and allows a return of full dental function for these teeth. In front teeth, older fillings can both weaken the teeth and cause “appearance” problems due to staining or chipping. Porcelain crowns and bridges are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not. In teeth with root canal fillings, crowns can prevent breakage.

It had been too long since I visited the dentist. I was home on vacation and had a broken tooth and another that was bothering me so I know I needed to come in. A cleaning was scheduled first and then a treatment plan was made. All the staff and Dr Lee were amazing at getting the work done before my return to Japan! Thanks everyone! I won't wait so long to come in again!

I love Rhonda my hygienist, gentle but great 6 mo cleanings, and she gave me my shots for latest crown/bridge work and was probably the easiest process I've had. Had Dr. Igram since 1980'ish but like new dentist and his assistant makes me feel right at home as the dentist is not my favorite place to go.

Everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful. Dr. Lee is a very gentle and thoughtful dentist. He even called to see if I was doing alright about an hour after the procedure of preparation for a new crown. I have never had a dentist show that much concern before!

I am quite fearful of the dentist, so when Dr. Ingram retired I was very leery to return. However, Dr. Lee is excellent. He's very gentle, patient, and kind. All of the staff are the same amazing people as before. I'd definitely recommend this office!

I am so grateful for Dr. Lee and the staff. Their kind, collaborative, respectful approach makes me feel so very comfortable. They encourage questions and take the time to gently explain everything. I really trust them, and I appreciate their energy. This is exactly the kind of dental experience I had always hoped for and I am so thankful for them. I really feel like they are the best dental office in Olympia--they are informative, down to earth, and very smart and savvy too. Also very gentle and skilled when it comes to procedures.

There's a reason that everyone has given them a 5 star review. This was about as pleasant as a dental visit could be. I had a dental emergency and they were able to squeeze me in between other appointments. I was especially impressed with Dr. Lee's professionalism. He really took the time to explain what the diagnosis was, what my options were, and checked on me throughout my procedure to make sure I had no discomfort or pain.

Extremely little pain with this crown procedure. Basically then only pain was from the injection for numbing. I was asked repeatedly if I was experiencing pain. No, I wasn't. The dentist was very conscientious about his actions and was determined to not cause pain.
