When a tooth is damaged, the structure can be weak and prone to further problems. Trauma, root canals, fillings and other issues can weaken a tooth, requiring repair or restoration. Dental crowns are the best full-tooth repair, providing a complete cap that covers the entire tooth surface. At Liberty Lake Smile Source, we offer beautiful dental crowns to repair damaged teeth at our dental center in the Spokane Valley.

Restore Cracked or Damaged Teeth

If you have a damaged tooth, a crown can protect it and provide the strength needed for chewing. To perform a dental crown treatment, some tooth material may be removed to create room for the cap. We take impressions of the tooth that are used to make a mold for the crown. A temporary crown is made on-site to protect the tooth until the permanent crown is custom made in the dental lab.

In most cases, we use porcelain crowns that look like natural teeth. Once the crown is created, we remove the temporary crown and bond the cap on the tooth. The tooth restoration looks and functions like a natural tooth.

Dental Inlays and Onlays

Some damaged teeth do not need a complete dental crown for repair. If a tooth has a large filling that is failing or only one side of the tooth is damaged, dental inlays or onlays can be used. Like dental crowns, these are usually made from porcelain in a dental lab. The partial coverings are designed to replace the missing tooth material and cover the top or side of the tooth. Inlays and onlays protect the tooth and are bonded to the tooth.

If you have a tooth that is damaged from dental treatments like root canals or fillings, or you broke a tooth, call us at Liberty Lake Smile Source. We offer white dental crowns, inlays and onlays at our dental center in Spokane Valley. Contact our dental team to schedule a tooth restoration consultation to discuss your options. Our practice accepts many insurance plans that can help cover some of the costs of your restoration treatment, as well as financing.

Great location, great people, and all around a great dentist. I recently transferred to their office due to location, and I’m very impressed with everything they have to offer. From the receptionist, to the hygienist, and the dentist are all super friendly and very professional.

I absolutely love the team at Liberty Lake Smile Source.I've been seeing Dr. Tim Casey for over 5 years and you won't find someone who is more attentive, caring and professional. We only see each other a couple times a year and he always checks in on how my family and I are doing.All of the staff are top-notch and I would 100% recommend this team to anyone who asks.

From start to finish, a great experience.Patty had a warm and welcoming smile to get me checked in (and out). I met with Heather (with a little help from Elizabeth) who were fantastic at explaining the whole process and making sure to breakdown jargon and let me know the findings of my cleaning. I got to watch some silly and funny animal tv on the ceiling which had some great ways to make me smile during the visit. They took great X-rays and pictures of my teeth to ensure all aspects of my dental care were considered. Dr. Macall was personable while also professional and informative. Would 10/10 recommend the entire process with this group. Thank you for your great care and even though it’s the dentist office, I look forward to returning.

The staff was very friendly. Office clean and welcoming. Hygienist was extremely knowledgeable and gentle. Dr Casey explained all scenarios to me and what work was needed first. I liked the efficiency of all his staff and I think it was my best experience with any dentist.

Recently moved here from Chicago, and a family member recommended Liberty Lake Smile. It took a brief and easy website visit and a follow-up call from them, and I had an appointment right away! I was impressed at how nice and professional the entire staff was, and it was apparent they really did care, and know their business! I was surprised at how thorough my initial visit and assessment actually was. Ann, the Hygienist and Dr. Casey demonstrated their competence, experience and professionalism, and left me with a feeling of confidence that they would provide excellent care! Moreover, they came up with a detailed plan to map out the course of action. I would happily recommend Liberty Lake Smile for your dental needs.
