Enjoy dental crown services at Harvest Hills Dental Care
At Harvest Hills Dental Care, we provide East Gwillimbury, Ontario, area patients with a selection of general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry solutions to improve their smiles. When it comes to broken or damaged teeth, dental crowns may be the obvious choice. This is because these dental “caps” are the best service for adding strength and protecting the natural tooth structure underneath.
What is a dental crown?
Our dentists describe the dental crown as a porcelain or metal cap placed on top of a tooth. This piece fits snugly over the entire affected area, restoring the appearance and function of your smile. Dental crowns are also used over dental implants to restore the smile after tooth loss.
What materials are used to make dental crowns?
Dental crowns are made from various materials, including porcelain, gold alloys, or other metals. The choice of material depends on several factors, including the type of crown being placed and your personal preferences. Talk with our team about which material will be best for you, and you may find that porcelain is best to ensure that the crown blends in with the smile and doesn’t appear as an obvious dental restoration.
What can I expect from the dental crown process?
First, our team starts with a consultation and initial evaluation to determine if you are a good candidate. Then, preparations are made, during which the natural tooth enamel is filed down around the core of the tooth. Impressions are taken and used to create a ceramic restoration that matches the existing teeth to blend in with the smile. Patients have a temporary placed until their final restoration comes back from the ceramist and is permanently affixed. When patients take good care of their dental crowns with proper care and routine visits to the dentist, they will enjoy their crowns for many years!
