What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown (also known as a cap) is a dental restoration that replaces the outer surface of your tooth with ceramic material and/or gold.

Calgary Dental Crowns may be the ideal treatment option when previous fillings have broken, fractured or chipped surfaces are noted, or tooth sensitivity is involved, and the existing tooth structure is too damaged to support a filling, an inlay, or an onlay Calgary. Dental Crowns are also used to improve the appearance of natural teeth that are malformed, malpositioned, or discolored.

Types of Dental Crowns in NW Calgary

Dental Crowns can be made from various materials, which include porcelain, Zirconia-based porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, and full-cast metal. Based on numerous factors including aesthetics, position within the mouth, habits such as grinding, and your personal preference, a full assessment will be needed to determine which material is appropriate for you.

Why You Might Require Dental Crowns

Some of the indications for requiring a Dental crown are:

  • A previously filled tooth where there now exists more filling than tooth. The existing tooth structure becomes weakened and can no longer support the filling.
  • Extensive damage by decay or breakage.
  • Discolorations and compromised aesthetics.
  • Fractures
  • After root canal therapy, teeth become brittle and are more apt to fracture. These teeth need to be protected and strengthened by a crown.
  • When missing teeth are replaced with a dental bridge, the adjacent teeth require crowns to support the replacement teeth. Crowns strengthen and protect the remaining tooth structure and can improve the appearance of your teeth.

If you want a long-term, cost-effective, esthetic, and durable restoration, a crown may be your best Calgary cosmetic dentist treatment option!
