Do you have any discoloured or misshapen teeth that detract from a beautiful-looking smile? Have you recently broken or cracked a tooth? If the appearance of your teeth is compromised by genetics, an accident, or weak enamel, see your dentist at Red Deer’s Parkland Mall Dental Centre, and ask about dental crowns that can help restore a healthy-looking smile, as well as improve the overall strength of your dental structure.
What Are Dental Crowns?
Crowns are prosthetic devices (or caps) that are similar to real, healthy teeth. These devices cover existing teeth in order to protect cracked, decayed, misshapen, or otherwise damaged dental surfaces.
Dental crowns are typically made of porcelain, ceramic, metal, or resin. The type of material is generally determined by your aesthetic preferences and the position of the tooth or teeth.
Porcelain and ceramic crowns are made to match the shade of your other teeth, and are often fused to metal to strengthen the crown. Metal and resin crowns may offer gentler wear to opposing teeth than will their porcelain and ceramic counterparts. Ask your dentist what material is best for you.
How Do Dental Crowns Work?
During the first appointment, your Parkland Mall Dental Centre dentist will determine which teeth are good candidates for crowns. After applying anesthetic, the dentist will shape the tooth, or teeth, so crowns will fit properly and look natural.
Next, our Red Deer dentists will take impressions of your teeth to create a precise mould for the crown. You will receive a temporary crown while your permanent crown is manufactured.
