Restore the function of your tooth without compromising beauty.
Our Porcelain Crowns
Repair your cracked, broken, or fractured tooth.
When a tooth suffers significant damage from decay, trauma, or wear, a dental crown, often referred to as a “cap,” becomes essential. Not only do crowns restore function, but they can also serve cosmetic purposes by enhancing tooth color, size, and shape.
At Soundview Dental Arts, our dental crowns are meticulously crafted to safeguard compromised teeth while reinstating their functionality. These crowns are versatile, finding use in capping dental implants or forming parts of dental bridges. The days of unsightly porcelain/metal crowns are history; today’s all-porcelain crowns closely resemble natural teeth, offering not only aesthetics but also remarkable strength and durability.
Our expert Tacoma dentist uses modern technology to create your custom-made crowns. The process begins with precise impressions of the affected tooth, followed by a collaboration with our trusted partner lab to produce exquisite crowns. The outcome is enhanced accuracy and longevity, allowing you to resume your routines and smile with renewed self-assurance.

Assess & Impress
Our caring dentist first assesses your tooth and identifies if you are a candidate for a dental crown. If so, we take a few impressions of your teeth and review the crown procedure with you.
During the design phase, our expert team applies the specifications of your crown’s size, shape, color, and fit. This information is then passed onto our dental lab, which produces the finished crown. At this stage, you may be asked to wear a temporary crown so your tooth is protected.
While at the lab, your new crown is constructed using state-of-the-art technology by a team who produces outstanding restorations. Once complete, the finished crown is returned to our practice where your dentist will assess the fit and style.
When happy with the crown, your dentist will prepare the natural teeth and place the crown. If further adjustments are needed, these are made before the crown is bonded into place. We strive to give you the best fit possible so you can enjoy the look and function of a natural smile.
