Our Edmonton dentists use dental crowns to restore or preserve a damaged tooth.
A crown is a tooth-coloured, custom-made artificial tooth that covers the entire surface of a damaged tooth, restoring its shape and size. You may need a crown if you have a root canal, a large filling in a tooth or a broken tooth.
Placing a dental crown usually requires two dental appointments. At Scotia Square Denistry, we offer our patients same-day crowns using CEREC technology.
With CEREC, there is no need for multiple appointments. Your dentist is able to build, create and place a dental crown while you're sitting in the dental chair.
Dental crowns can be designed, shaped and coloured to match your natural teeth. They are used to repair teeth that have large, fractured or broken fillings and also for those that are badly decayed, chipped or cracked.
Crowns protect and strengthen teeth that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
Take care of your dental crowns the same way you take care of your natural teeth.
That means regular brushing and flossing, twice-yearly visits to the dentist, and taking care not to bite down on hard objects, or open packaging with your teeth.
