Dental Crowns and Restorative Dentistry
Dental Crowns- Porcelain Crowns – Edmonton and Calgary, Alberta – Dental Choice
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped coverings that are bonded over teeth to restore functionality and improve appearance. They are an excellent solution for repairing teeth that are badly damaged or decayed. The Dental Choice dentists at our offices in Edmonton and Calgary, Alberta, are skilled at placing porcelain, metal, and ceramic dental crowns with artistry and precision in to order to provide natural-looking and durable results.
Types of Dental Crowns
Our practice offers three different types of dental crowns in order to tailor treatments to each patient's individual needs and goals: metal, all-ceramic, and porcelain-fused-to-metal. Metal crowns are durable, strong, and ideal for providing support to the back teeth for biting and chewing. All-ceramic crowns are made of a translucent material that matches the color of natural tooth enamel. Because ceramic crowns are so natural looking, they are an excellent choice for treating front teeth.
Porcelain crowns are an important third option for repairing decayed or damaged teeth. Because their porcelain coverings are fused to metal, they are stronger than all-ceramic crowns. In addition, porcelain crowns are more cosmetically appealing than metal crowns. For patients whose needs fall somewhere in between metal crowns and ceramic crowns, porcelain crowns can be an ideal treatment option. All three types of crowns can be used to anchor dental bridges or dental implant restorations.
The dentists at our locations in Edmonton and Calgary, Alberta, will carefully select the type, size, and color of dental crowns in order to provide results that improve functionality and appearance. Contact a Dental Choice location near you to schedule a free consultation.
Advantages of Dental Crowns
Dental crowns can strengthen and protect teeth while enhancing the appearance of the patient's smile. Each crown covers and protects the entire surface area of the tooth. Crowns can eliminate pain and restore strength in teeth that have been seriously injured or damaged.
Another advantage of dental crowns is that they can be placed in as few as two office visits. Even the temporary crowns that are worn while the permanent veneers are being custom-crafted will improve the appearance and health of your teeth. Lastly, dental crowns are long-lasting and can provide outstanding results for up to 15 years.
