Restoring Teeth With Crowns

Dental crowns are hollow, artificial teeth that can be placed over an entire decayed or damaged tooth. They are designed to restore the tooth's original shape, size and colour.

Dental crowns can strengthen a broken tooth that might otherwise need to be removed, and change the overall function and appearance of your teeth.

Crowns are strong and can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain and metal. They look and function like natural teeth and, if cared for properly, can last 10 years or more.

If you are concerned about the health of your smile and want to protect your teeth from further damage or decay, dental crowns might be able to help restore the look and function of your tooth. Our Main Street Dental team can work with you to come up with a restorative treatment plan to help you achieve your smile goals.

How Dental Crowns Work

If you have a tooth that is too badly damaged or decayed and needs a large part of it removed, your dentist might consider you to be a candidate for a dental crown restoration.

For people who have had to undergo a root canal, your dentist might also recommend this type of restoration. Dental crowns are also used to attach bridges, to cover dental implants or for cosmetic purposes, such as to lighten a discoloured tooth.

The Crown Procedure

Placing a dental crown requires two dental appointments. At the first appointment, your dentist will prepare and take an impression of the tooth. This will be used to create a custom crown. While your crown is being made, you may be fitted with a temporary crown.

Once it's ready, you will return for a second appointment where your crown will be placed and sculpted just for you, so that your bite and jaw movements function normally.
