Crowns are a cosmetic restoration procedure used to strengthen a tooth or improve its shape and are cemented onto an existing tooth that is broken, worn or partially decayed, around the gum line.
Our dentists work hard every day to create custom crowns using our Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) technology. Crowns can be made of porcelain, metal or a combination of both. Porcelain crowns are most often preferred because they mimic the translucency of natural teeth and are very strong.
Crowns or partial crowns, also referred to as onlays, are needed when there is insufficient tooth strength to hold a filling. Your crown is created in a lab from your unique tooth impression, which allows a dental laboratory technician to examine all aspects of your bite and jaw movements. Your crown is then sculpted just for you so that your bite and jaw movements function normally once the crown is placed.
If you think a dental crown may be in your near future, call us today at 519-672-8770 to discuss your needs.
