A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that covers the entire visible portion of the tooth. In fact, it replaces the tooth enamel. To tell you more about dental crowns in Auburn, Washington, our dentist is happy to share some dental crown facts.

-A dental crown can be used to protect a weak tooth, restore a broken tooth, repair a severely decayed tooth, enhance the appearance of a tooth, help a severely worn-down tooth, and more.

-A dental crown can help children if the tooth is at high risk of tooth decay and they have poor oral hygiene. It can also help children if a tooth has been severely decayed and it can’t support a dental filling.
