Dental Crowns in Calgary to Restore Your Teeth

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.

The Procedure For Getting Dental Crowns

Our dentists can carefully guide you through the dental crown process. Before you go through it, you can get an idea of what to expect when you are getting your dental crowns at Northland Village Dental Centre in Calgary:

 

  • At the initial appointment, the dentist will conduct an assessment to determine the best course of action. 
  • We then take an impression of your teeth to create a model of your mouth, which is used to manufacture your custom crown. 
  • Until your final dental crown is ready, a temporary crown will be placed over the tooth that needs to be restored to protect your tooth.
  • On your next appointment, your temporary crown will be replaced with a permanent dental crown. During the same visit, we will ensure that the fit, shape, colour, and bite are right.

When Are Dental Crowns Needed?

You may need a dental crown if you are faced with any of the following circumstances:

  • To protect your weak tooth from decaying or breaking. 
  • To restore your severely worn down tooth. 
  • To support or cover a large tooth filling. 
  • To hold your dental bridge firmly in place. 
  • To cover severely discoloured teeth.
  • To cover a dental implant
  • To make a cosmetic modification

Types of Dental Crowns

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:

  • Porcelain Crowns
    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.
  • Metal Crowns
    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.
  • Composite Crowns
    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 dentists today to determine which dental crowns are right for you.
