This state-of-the-art technology ensures that you won’t have to return unnecessarily for multiple visits to complete your care with us.

Who Needs a Dental Crown?

Illustration of dental crownThere are several situations in which your dentist may suggest a crown as the appropriate solution, such as:

  • To strengthen a decayed or cracked tooth
  • To rebuild worn-down or eroded teeth
  • To rebuild a tooth with a large, broken filling
  • To support a bridge
  • To mask discoloured, malaligned or malformed teeth
  • To complete your dental implant treatment

Sit Back and Relax

After we’ve gathered all the necessary information to create your crown, you’ll have about a 30-minute break while the crown is made in our laboratory. The tooth in question is prepared and scanned. Since we can scan your teeth, you won’t have to worry about any gooey impressions being taken. Your crown is then designed from this information, milled and glazed in a single appointment.

A Precision Fit

We use the precision of CAD/CAM design to fabricate the perfect-fitting crown for your tooth. Your crown will be colour-matched to the rest of your teeth for an aesthetically pleasing look. Each crown is made from ceramic, which is natural-looking so that it blends in with your smile.

At times, however, it may be necessary to have an external laboratory create your crown, which means you’ll have to return. For another visit. In the meantime, you’d receive a temporary crown that protects your teeth.

Do I Need a Bridge?

Bridges are multi-crown restorations that are used to replace missing teeth. Either end serves as a functional crown, resting on top of a tooth or dental implant. Between them is a suspended pontic crown, which fills in the space of your missing tooth.

A fixed bridge is a great alternative to removable partials or if you don’t qualify for dental implant treatment.

Cleaning Your New Restoration

Although bridges and crowns cover the entire surface of your supporting teeth, there’s still a small area around the margins that can collect plaque. Keeping these edges clean will help prevent new decay or infection from developing around them, affecting your underlying tooth.

Gently brush your crown or bridge the same way you would your other teeth. Take note to floss your restoration daily, gently swiping up and down where the margin meets the gumlines. A special threader can be used to floss underneath your bridge.
