Our Edmonton dentists often fix any significant tooth damage by using dental crowns, which cover the entire surface of the tooth.
Dental crowns are hollow, artificial teeth that a dentist will place over an entire damaged or decayed tooth to restore its function and protect it from deteriorating any further.Book Online
Crowns are needed when there is insufficient tooth strength remaining to hold a filling. Unlike fillings, which apply the restorative material directly into your mouth, a crown is fabricated away from your mouth.
Your crown is created in a lab from your unique tooth impression, which allows a dental laboratory technician to examine all aspects of your bite and jaw movements.
Your crown is then sculpted just for you, so that your bite and jaw movements function normally once the crown is placed.
If you need a filling replaced but your natural tooth is too small, your dentists may crown it. Your dentist may also use a crown to cover a crooked or discoloured tooth to improve your aesthetic.
Made from a variety of strong materials such as porcelain or metal, crowns look and work like natural teeth. If you take proper care of them, they can generally last 10 years or more.
