Dental Crowns at Our Edmonton Dental Clinic

Looking for Dental Crowns in South Edmonton? If you have teeth that are broken, badly decayed or
discoloured, your dentist from Strathcona Dental Clinic may suggest dental crowns as a restorative treatment. Also referred to as caps, dental crowns are essentially hollow covers that go over existing teeth to bolster strength or for cosmetic purposes.

About Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are made using impressions of your prepared tooth or teeth, then cemented over that tooth, up to the gum line. These are used if too much of a tooth is lost to decay to hold a filling, for cosmetic purposes and to protect the tooth after root canal
treatment/therapy. Depending on your situation and what you and your Strathcona Dental Clinic dentist decide, there are three main types of crowns:

  1. Gold caps are highly durable and have the strength to protect back teeth for biting and chewing. Since they are very noticeable, they may not be
    the desired choice for front teeth.
  2. Ceramic or porcelain dental crowns closely resemble the
    colour and translucence of natural teeth. The natural look is often preferred for treatment of front teeth.
  3. Porcelain fused to metal (PFM) provide both the strength of metal with the natural look of porcelain to create crowns that are highly durable and less susceptible to breakage.

What to Expect While Crowning a Tooth

Crowning a tooth is a minimum five-step procedure that we assure you will be as comfortable and anxiety-free as possible. These steps include:

  1. Application of a local anesthetic.
  2. Using specialized tools, the affected tooth will be filed down to prepare for the dental crown.
  3. A dental impression of your filed tooth and the surrounding teeth will be taken.
  4. A temporary crown will be applied.
  5. At a subsequent visit, the permanent crown that was made from your dental impression will be fitted and cemented into place.
