Dental crowns provide teeth replacements for natural dental crowns, or the chewing surfaces of the teeth, that have sustained damage. Our tooth crowns or “tooth caps,” are custom-made for your smile, so they look and feel natural.

Boulder cosmetic dentist, Dr. Gordon West, DDS, can recommend a top-quality porcelain crown designed for a perfect fit and finish. Our Lafayette, CO area patients love Dr. West and are thrilled with the results of a beautifully restored smile.

The Porcelain Crown Procedure in Boulder, CO

The procedure for placing porcelain dental crowns for teeth is fairly simple.

1. Before the dental crown procedure
Dr. West first examines your mouth and makes an impression of your teeth, so we can create a plan for the placements of your new tooth cap.

2. Preparing your tooth for a dental crown
Dr. West prepares the natural tooth for the new dental crown. A temporary tooth crown is then attached to the natural tooth to provide protection while your permanent dental crown is being made.

3. Placing the new dental crown
About a week after the first visit, you will return to our dentist’s office in Boulder county. During your second appointment, the temporary dental crown is removed, and the permanent tooth crown is securely fitted.

What Are the Benefits of Porcelain Crowns?

  • Dental crowns are strong and long-lasting when patients care for them properly.
  • Porcelain tooth crowns are far less noticeable than metal crowns. We can even customize the color to help your porcelain crowns further blend in with your other teeth.
  • Dental crowns are created from molds of your teeth, helping the crown feel and function like your natural teeth.
"I hate going the dentist and have a pretty bad phobia about going but Dr. West was great. I had 2 root canals and a crown. Everyone was very friendly and Dr. West put me at ease completely. I did the sedation dentistry and after the procedure, I didn't even recall what happened. No pain and no worries during the procedures. The best experience I've had. Can't imagine going anywhere else."

"Dr. West is an excellent clinician and has great staff. I have had 2 crowns done in his office in the last year and the experience was professional, smooth and pain-free. His current cutting edge technology allows the crown to be fabricated in-house and makes the entire process a lot quicker. My other crown was sent to a lab for fabrication and still a quick process and perfect fit. The staff is experienced, caring and professional as well. Given my experience of spending a lot of time in dental chairs I highly recommend Dr. West!!!"

"I went in to get a crown but Dr West ended up just giving me a filling. That is unheard of. The staff is very well trained in dentistry and in how to treat clpatients. They are the most professional and nicest I've ever met. Janessa, Maggie, and Perla all helped me yesterday and couldn't have been better."
