Dental Crowns are reliable dental restorations that are used to restore the function of teeth that have large restorations or have had root canal treatment. At Chinook Family Dental Care, we are pleased to offer a variety of dental crowns to restore function while maintaining the natural aesthetics of your teeth.
Dental Crowns are the preferred treatment option for teeth with 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 recurring tooth decay benefit from Dental Crowns.
Dental Crowns are custom made using a variety of materials. Dr. James Chen uses ceramic porcelain, Zirconia based porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, and cast gold crowns. Dr. James Chen will suggest the best type of dental crowns for your needs based on various factors such as aesthetics, where the crown is used in your mouth, your dental habits, conditions such as teeth grinding, and your personal preference. A complete assessment will be used to determine the best dental crown for your situation.
Your appointment for dental crowns first involves shaping the tooth to fit your new crown. We then obtain a detailed impression that is sent to our dental laboratory, where your custom crown is created by a professional lab technician. In between appointments, you will have a temporary crown fitted onto the shaped tooth.
We know that your smile is important to you and restoring the function of your teeth with our Chinook Centre Dental Crowns is one of the many dental health services that we offer at Chinook Family Dental Care.
