If you are interested in a way to restore the function and overall aesthetics of your damaged or discoloured teeth, dental crowns might be right for you. Point McKay Dental is pleased to offer dental crowns, so you can achieve the smile you have always wanted.
A dental crown, or a ‘cap’ as it is often referred to, is a reliable dental restoration that covers or fully ‘cap’s damaged teeth in order to improve the overall health and appearance of your teeth and smile. Dental crowns are used to restore the function of teeth that require large restorations due to disease, damage, decay, stains, an accident, or wear and tear, and help to restore your smile to what it once was. Crowns are the preferred treatment option for teeth that have fillings that become larger than the natural tooth structure. In addition to large fillings, teeth that have undergone root canal therapy and teeth that suffer from recurrent tooth decay may benefit from a dental crown.
Dental crowns are custom made using a variety of materials, including ceramic porcelain; Zirconia based porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, full cast metal and traditional gold dental crowns. Your Point McKay Dental professional will suggest the best type of dental crown for your needs based on various factors such as aesthetic, function, your dental habits, conditions such as teeth grinding, and your personal preferences. Your appointment for a dental crown involves shaping the tooth to fit your new crown. We obtain a detailed impression of your tooth using a mold that is sent to our dental laboratory, where your custom crown is created by a professional lab technician.
