To make severely damaged or misshapen teeth look whole again, a crown can restore both the function of the tooth and its natural appearance. If you are looking for dental crowns in Bow Island, our dentists at Bow Island Dental Centre can help you with personalized care and treatments.
Usually, crowns are created in a two-step process: first, we will clear all infected or decayed tissue from the tooth and take a mould of the tooth to create a properly fitted crown. Afterwards, we create a natural-looking porcelain crown. The third and final step is making sure it is tightly sealed and secured in place. The crown will blend in with the colour and of your natural teeth as well as protect the damaged tooth from further decay or infection.
If you’re self-conscious about a misshapen or discoloured tooth, the possibility of using a crown could change the appearance of the tooth. Ask your Bow Island Dental Centre dentist about this today. On the other hand, if you are looking for a dental crown or would like more information, we can answer any questions you may have. Crowns can now even be used to reproportion a tooth’s width or height to match the appearance of the neighbouring teeth. Our depth in experience ensures every factor is covered with a personalized approach.
Missing teeth can have long-term consequences, from bone underlying the missing tooth possibly deteriorating, or changing the alignment of your bite and the shape of your face. Dentures can fill in the place of a missing tooth, however, they do not protect the jaw from bone deterioration and, over time, as other teeth shift and the gum shrinks, the dentures can become painful and ill-fitting. This is the reason why dental implants are often a better solution for missing teeth. Dental implants are comprised of a porcelain crown on top that simulates the look of a natural tooth and a titanium post below that integrates with the natural bone. Moreover, crowns can be used to anchor a bridge that might replace several adjacent missing teeth.
