Dental crowns fit over injured, discolored, or cracked teeth, or fill the space resulting after dental extractions and protect the teeth from further injuries or damages.
Consult Bank Street Dentistry in Ottawa for an expert opinion about whether dental crowns or bridges could be the right solution for you.
Dental Crowns are used to restore teeth that have been broken or are at high risk of doing so due to decaying fillings or fractures, and will look and feel similar to your real teeth.
Dental Crowns (also called caps) are typically constructed from noble alloys or porcelain and are needed if a significant portion of the tooth is missing. Usually, extensive decay, injury, or root canal therapy are the situations where a crown is recommended.
During your first visit, our dentists will prepare your tooth structure and then take an impression of the prepared tooth, make a temporary crown to place on the tooth, 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 the crown in place.
When the procedure is finished, the crown will blend seamlessly with your teeth, return the strength that you need for comfortable oral function, and restore your all-white smile.
