A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth. It covers the tooth and restores its shape, size, strength, and improve appearance. Once cemented in place it will completely cover the visible portion of a tooth above the gum line. Generally speaking, the main advantage of placing a crown are that it looks and feels a lot better. Crowns can also improve the colour and the shape of the tooth or teeth. Porcelain has a more natural appearance and is much more resistant to stains than white filling material (composite). Crowns are generally recommended for patients ages 16 and up.
Same day crowns
Crowns can take several days in most offices. The tooth first has to be prepped for the crown, and then a mold taken and sent to a lab to fabricate the crown. It can take several days for the crown to reach the dental office. Then another appointment is scheduled for the crown to be placed. With our Cerec technology, we can take your x-ray, do all tooth preparation, scan the treatment area, and mill your crown in one visit!
