Dental Crowns St. Albert
Dental crowns, also known as caps, are a common solution for restoring teeth that have been broken, damaged or at risk of further harm due to large old fillings or fractures. These reconstructions, which can be made from a variety of materials including noble alloys or porcelain, will look and feel similar to your natural teeth. They are indicated if a significant portion of the tooth is missing, usually as a result of extensive decay, injury or root canal therapy.
What is the Procedure for Dental Crowns?
At Family Dental, we will prepare the tooth structure, take an impression of the prepared tooth, make a temporary crown to protect the tooth and maintain its position, and send the impression to a dental laboratory to fabricate the crown.
At your next visit, we will try-in the crown to ensure a good fit and then cement it in place. With a dental crown, you can expect a seamless blend with your natural teeth, improved oral function and a restored all-white smile. Consult us for an expert opinion about whether dental crowns or bridges could be the right solution for you.
Reasons for Dental Crowns
Your dentist may recommend a dental crown if you have:
- Extensive tooth decay in one area
- A fractured or broken tooth
- A tooth that needs protection after a root canal
- A dental implant in need of a restoration
- A weakened tooth
- A tooth that is discoloured or misshapen
- A tooth that is being used as a support for a dental bridge
A dental crown will enhance the strength of your tooth, improve its appearance, and restore it to an optimal shape to improve your bite and smile.
