Dental Crowns in Richmond Hill & Toronto
Dufferin Vaughan Dental Centre offers dental crowns to replace missing teeth and improve the appearance of your smie.
The dental crown procedure utilizes a ceramic material to cover a damaged tooth and restore it to its normal shape and size. Dental crowns are used for a number of reasons:
- Protecting a weak or decaying tooth from further damage
- Capping a broken or cracked tooth
- Covering discoloured or misshapen teeth for esthetics
- Supporting a tooth that has been largely filled or had a root canal
- Assisting a dental bridge procedure
Typically, the dental crown procedure is completed in two stages. During the first stage, the dentist removes portions of your natural tooth's structure to accommodate the dental crown. Surrounding teeth may also be prepared in this way. An impression is made and sent to the lab, where your dental crown is created in about two weeks. A temporary crown will be in place between visits to ensure the most natural look and feel. When you return to the dentist's office, the temporary crown is removed and your new, custom dental crown is securely bonded in place.
