Our Highmoor Dental dentist uses dental crowns to correct significant damage to teeth and prevent further deterioration for our Edmonton patients.
Dental crowns are a artificial hollow teeth which are places over a whole tooth hat has been damaged or is decayed to restore it's original size, colour and shape.
Dental crowns improve your broken tooth's function, shape, strength and function when it might otherwise be lost.
Crowns are very strong and can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain and metal. They look and function like natural teeth, and if cared for properly, can last 10 years or more.
When a tooth experiences an amount of decay or damage which means that large portions of it must be removed, your dentist may use a dental crown to restore it.
Our dentist might also use a dental crown to restore a tooth after another dental procedure like a root canal. Dental crowns may be used to attach bridges to your teeth and to cover dental implants for cosmetic reasons such as lightening discolouration.
Placing a dental crown requires two different dental appointments. At the initial one, your dentist will take an impression of your tooth in order to create your custom crown. While your crown is being created, you might be fitted with a temporary crown.
Once your custom-made crown is ready, you will return for a second appointment where it will be placed into your mouth and sculpted just for you so that your jaw and bite function normally.
