Crowns:

Dental crowns encase the tooth on which they are cemented. Since dental crowns cover the entire visible aspect of a tooth, a dental crown in effect becomes the tooth’s new outer surface. Crowns can be made from porcelain or metal (a gold or other metal alloy), or a combination of both.

YOUR DENTIST MAY PRESCRIBE A CROWN TO:

  • Replace a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth structure remaining
  • Protect a weak tooth from fracturing
  • Restore a fractured tooth
  • Attach a bridge
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Cover a discoloured or poorly shaped tooth
  • Cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment

The type of crown your dentist recommends will depend on the tooth involved and on your personal preference. To make a crown, the existing tooth is shaped and an impression is taken. The crown is then fabricated in a dental laboratory by a highly skilled dental technician.
