Dental Crowns, Bridges, and Implant Crowns
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped coverings that are bonded over teeth to repair and improve appearance. They are a 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 options with precision. Each patient is unique.

Types of Dental Crowns
Our practices offer many different types of dental crowns to tailor treatments to each patient’s individual needs and goals, including gold, metal, all-ceramic, porcelain-fused-to-metal, etc. Gold and metal crowns are durable and ideal for providing support. All-ceramic crowns are natural looking, and thus a more cosmetically appealing option.
Porcelain crowns are another possibility that can be used for repairing decayed or damaged teeth. The porcelain coverings are fused to metal, making them a strong option. Also, porcelain crowns are more cosmetically appealing than metal crowns. We also offer CEREC®, custom designed crowns and veneers created using computerized 3-D technology. All crown types can be used to anchor dental bridges or dental implant restorations. Make an appointment at Dental Choice to discuss with your dentist which crown option is the best to fit your goals and needs.
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 are used to repair and protect damaged teeth. 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 offer cosmetically appealing protection.
Am I a Good Candidate for Dental Crowns?
The primary factor in determining whether someone is a good candidate for dental crowns is simply the condition of their teeth. Dental crowns are typically used when a tooth has decayed to the point where it can no longer be salvaged. Advanced tooth decay is unstoppable, and installation of a dental crown is usually the best solution. In such cases, your dentist may recommend a crown be used to improve your health and appearance or to protect your teeth and gums from further damage.
If you have any questions about dental crowns, schedule an appointment with Dental Choice for more information. Our dentists will examine your teeth and determine which type of crown is the right option for you. Your dentist will also tell you what to expect during the procedure and how to care for the crown afterward. This is important because there are basic care instructions you need to follow, which usually include avoiding certain foods. If you don’t follow all the instructions carefully, your crown might fall out.
Many different types of dental issues can be solved by getting a dental crown. Talk to your dentist about your symptoms to see if a dental crown is the right solution for you. You’ll be surprised at how simple the process is and how life-changing it can be for your overall dental health.
Cost of Dental Crowns
The cost associated with getting a dental crown is unique for each patient as everyone has their own specific needs that need to be addressed. When you come to Dental Choice, your dentist will discuss the options available and pricing for the dental crown procedure. Some of the variables that can influence your dental crown cost include:
- Preparation required ahead of time, such as examinations, X-rays and whether a root canal or dental implant is needed
- Size, location and condition of the tooth
- Treatment process
- Type of dental crown selected
- Number of crowns required
