At Northland Village Dental Centre in Calgary, we can help you restore your damaged or worn-down teeth with dental crowns.
A dental crown is also known as a cap and is hollow. It is an artificial tooth that is used to cover a damaged or decayed tooth and restores as well as protects it from any further damage. With the help of modern dentistry dental crowns, they can also cover a discoloured or misconstructed tooth.
These cap-like devices are cemented onto your natural or artificial teeth to enhance their shape, appearance, and functionality. You might need quality dental crowns if you had root canal surgery, a large filling, or a chipped tooth.

You may need a dental crown if you are faced with any of the following circumstances:
Dental crowns are made from different types of materials. Our dentists can consult you with the most suitable dental crown based on your oral health. Dental crowns come in the following materials:
These dental crowns look the most natural. However, they are more brittle than metal or composite dental crowns and may chip easily, which is why they are not placed on your back teeth.
They are made of gold and can last for an extended period since they do not chip or break easily. However, the gold colour does not look natural, especially on the front teeth.
They look natural and won’t chip easily, yet they wear down more quickly than other types of crowns from chewing. Tooth brushing tends to remove the highly polished surface of your composite crowns, staining them more easily.
Generally, dental crowns last for years when properly cared for through regular brushing and cleaning. Consult our Calgary dentists today to determine which dental crowns are right for you.
