Quick Fix, Perfect Fit
If you have a misshapen, discoloured or moderately damaged tooth, the easiest (and most common) solution is to cover it with a dental crown — a hollow cap, shaped like your tooth, to protect and strengthen it.
Because dental crowns are built outside the mouth, we can craft them perfectly to the shape of your tooth and mouth. They can be made of metal, porcelain fused to gold, zirconium, all ceramic or even solid gold. Your dentist will recommend which is right for you.
How We Crown
We take an impression of the damaged tooth and surrounding area to use when building your crown.
We then shape the damaged tooth to make room for the crown and place a temporary crown over top of the tooth.
You come back when your permanent dental crown is ready and we cement it into place.
When Else Might You Get a Crown?
- To keep a damaged or weak tooth from further deterioration
- To protect a tooth after a root canal
- To cover a large filling or dental implant
- To change the look of your smile
Caring for Crowns
Dental crowns last an average of ten years but could last a lifetime if you take care of them properly. Treat them like you’d treat any other tooth: daily flossing, brushing, regular check-ups and professional cleanings.
