Dental Crowns | Tooth Crowns
Dental crowns are like protective caps for damaged or missing teeth, restoring their strength and appearance. At Skyview Ranch Dental Clinic in Calgary, our dentists suggest crowns for various reasons:
1. Broken Tooth: If your tooth is broken, a crown can cover and protect it.
2. Missing Tooth: Crowns fill gaps caused by missing teeth.
3. Discolored Tooth: To improve appearance, crowns cover discolored teeth.
4. Worn-down Tooth: When a tooth is worn, crowns restore its surface.
5. Dental Bridge Support: Crowns support dental bridges closing gaps.
6. Dental Implant Cover: They cover and secure dental implants.
Our clinic also offers Invisalign, invisible aligners that straighten teeth discreetly. Ask our dentists about Invisalign and dental crowns to enhance your smile’s health and appearance.
What’s Involved In A Dental Crown Procedure?
Getting dental crowns in Calgary typically requires two dental appointments. During the first visit, your dentist will examine your tooth to ensure it’s capable of supporting a dental crown. They may also begin filing your tooth down in preparation for the crown. If your tooth is severely damaged, it may need filled in in order to support the crown. We’ll make an impression of your teeth and gums, so that we can draw an exact design of your dental crown in our state-of-the-art lab. You’ll typically have a temporary crown in place at the end of the first visit. During your second visit, we’ll remove the temporary crown and replace it with the permanent one. Be aware that your mouth may take some time to get used to your new dental crown. However, in time, your dental crown should look, feel and function just like a regular tooth.
