Placing Dental Crowns
Vancouver, WA

These crowns are placed on damaged teeth to serve as a covering and protect and restore the tooth’s shape when a filling doesn’t resolve the problem. Placing dental crowns requires the right expertise since they must be created in the right size for your teeth. These crowns are usually made with ceramics, resin, porcelain, and metal. Dental crowns are durable and strong compared to other treatments.

Dr. Brian Alder and Dr. Alder at Alder Dental can help you identify the right type of dental crowns for you based on multiple factors, including your overall oral health and the severity of the damage.
