At Oakridge Crossing Dental, our Dental Team is pleased to offer SW Calgary Dental Crowns to restore the function of your teeth while ensuring the natural aesthetics of your teeth are maintained.
Dental Crowns are used to restore teeth that have extensive, old restorations, decayed teeth, or teeth that have undergone root canal treatment. Sometimes, a traditional white filling is not the best option for restoring your teeth. Dental Crowns are recommended for teeth with fillings that exceed the natural tooth structure. In addition to large fillings, teeth that have undergone root canal therapy along with teeth that suffer from reoccurring tooth decay benefit from Dental Crowns.
Dental Crowns are recommended when:
Your first appointment for your dental crowns will involve the shaping your tooth to fit your new crown. A detailed impression of the teeth is then sent to our dental laboratory, where our professional lab technician creates your custom crown.
Our Dental Crowns are custom made using a variety of materials. We use ceramic porcelain; Zirconia based porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, full cast metal, and traditional gold dental crowns. The best type of crown for your situation is determined based on a variety of factors such as aesthetics, where the crown is placed in your mouth, your dental habits, oral conditions such as teeth grinding, and, of course, your, personal preference. A complete diagnostic assessment will determine the best type of dental crown for your situation.
Sometimes patients lose individual teeth or large sections of teeth due to injury, decay or disease and as such, there is not enough tooth structure available to create a regular dental crown.
Thanks to modern advancements in Dentistry, we can now surgically replace your missing tooth with an Implant Supported Dental Crown. These are also known as dental implants. Dr. Corbea will insert a titanium implant post into your jawbone which will act as the root of your tooth. He will then create a custom fabricated dental crown that will be attached to the post. This will restore the strength, function and natural look to your new smile. These kinds of dental implants have the benefit of lasting for many years!
