Dental Crowns

Metal, All-Ceramic and Porcelain Dental Crowns


Dental crowns are tooth-shaped coverings that are bonded over teeth to repair and improve appearance. They are an professional solution for repairing teeth that are badly damaged or decayed. The Dental Choice dentists at our offices in Edmonton and Calgary, Alberta, are trained at placing porcelain, metal, and ceramic dental crowns with precision.

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 a 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 professionally select the type, size, and color of dental crowns for you. Contact a Dental Choice location near you for more information!

Advantages of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns can repair 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 may eliminate pain and repair 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 of your teeth.
