Your Downtown Calgary Choice for Dental Crowns!

If you are interested in a cost-effective, long-term, and durable restoration for your damaged teeth, dental crowns might be for you. Canterra Dental is pleased to offer this common restorative treatment option.

What is a Dental Crown?

Dental Crowns, commonly referred to as “caps,” are dental restorations that cover all of the tooth surfaces of a damaged tooth, essentially covering or “capping” it in order to restore its natural shape and appearance. Dental Crowns may be the ideal treatment option when previous fillings have broken, fractured, or chipped surfaces are noted, or tooth sensitivity is involved. Crowns are also used to improve the appearance of natural teeth that are malformed, malpositioned, or discolored.

What are Dental Crowns Made of?

Dental Crowns can be made from various materials, including porcelain, Zirconia-based porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, and full-cast metal. Based on numerous factors including esthetics, position within the mouth, habits such as grinding, and your personal preference, a full assessment will be needed to determine which material is appropriate for you.

Some of the indications for requiring a crown are:

  • A previously filled tooth where there now exists more filling than tooth. The existing tooth structure becomes weakened and can no longer support the filling.
  • Extensive damage by decay or breakage.
  • Discolorations and compromised esthetics.
  • Fractures
  • Root canal – After root canal therapy, teeth tend to become brittle and are more apt to fracture. These teeth need to be protected and strengthened by a crown.
  • Bridges – When missing teeth are replaced with a bridge, the adjacent teeth require crowns in order to support the replacement teeth. Crowns strengthen and protect the remaining tooth structure and can improve the appearance of your teeth.

If you are interested in a long-term, cost-effective, esthetic and durable restoration, a crown may be the best treatment option for you!
