When a tooth is broken down, chipped, decayed or discoloured, we consider crowns, also known as “caps”, to improve the appearance and health of your smile. Dental crowns improve the strength and esthetics of broken down teeth to enable you to chew again and can also recreate your beautiful and natural-looking smile. You may need a crown if you have had a root canal, cracked tooth or large filling. Crowns are important to prevent badly broken down teeth from further harm. They are also helpful in covering a stained or oddly-shaped tooth. Dental crowns are very natural-looking and the life-like porcelain can be stained to specifically match characteristics of the teeth next to it.
Crowns cover the entire tooth from the gum line so it becomes your new tooth surface because it completely envelopes it. On the other hand, fillings only cover or fill a portion of the tooth, so your natural tooth surface still shows alongside.
Lakeridge dental is proud to offer patients an alternative to restore damaged teeth. The CEREC unit uses a tooth colored ceramic to create a beautiful strong tooth in a single visit with no messy impression materials. You can even watch as the machine creates your new tooth digitally!
