Porcelain Dental Crowns – Washington, PA
We Revitalize Struggling Teeth
A crown (oftentimes referred to as a “cap”) is a common type of dental restoration here at Bartusiak Dental Care. It’s designed to cover the entire visible surface of a single tooth. This offers patients two valuable benefits – not only is the tooth’s remaining structure better preserved, but its original shape and size is replenished as well for a healthier overall smile. Crowns are ideal for patients with dental damage that’s too extensive for a simple filling, inlay, or onlay to correct successfully.
Dr. Bartusiak is proud to primarily offer high-quality ceramic and zirconia materials for dental crowns, which means that your new smile addition will look just as healthy and natural as it feels. If you’d like to learn more or schedule a first appointment here in Washington, PA, don’t hesitate to contact us.

The Porcelain Dental Crown Process
In most cases, the creation and placement of a brand-new dental crown will require at least two appointments here in Washington, PA. First, our doctors will get started by capturing highly detailed molds of the tooth or teeth in question. This mold will also be used to create a temporary crown that patients can wear in the interim while the permanent version is being painstakingly crafted by a trusted dental laboratory. After decay is removed from the tooth and the surface is shaped to accommodate the temporary crown, it will be secured in place.
At your follow-up appointment, we will remove the temporary dental crown, thoroughly clean the dental structure, and then place the new, finished dental crown very carefully in order to ensure that the appearance, spacing, and overall bite are all ideal. We will also provide plenty of care instructions so that you can ensure a long, healthy life for the new restoration at home.
