Dental Crowns in Thornton

Your Perfect Smile

model of a dental crownFor patients that are missing teeth, have had a prior root canal, or those who simply want to correct a chipped or cracked tooth’s appearance, a dental crown may be an ideal solution for you.

Dental crowns are crafted to match your smile perfectly in color, tooth shape, and bite. They’ll also look, feel and function exactly like your real teeth. In fact, your own friends and family members likely won’t be able to tell you have a crown-they’ll simply comment on how beautiful your smile is.

What Are Crowns?

Crowns, or “caps” as some call them, are custom-made covers for teeth that have had a root canal (leaving very little tooth structure), cracked or weakened teeth or teeth that are so decayed that a regular filling isn’t sufficient. Made of porcelain or ceramic material, they can be matched to the colour of your natural teeth, enabling them to blend in perfectly. It typically takes two appointments to fit a crown.

At the first appointment, we prepare the tooth so the crown is able to snuggly fit over it. Next, we mold an impression of the tooth so that the crown fits between the teeth on either side of it and is the same size and shape as the one being capped. At the end of this visit, we attach a temporary crown to protect the tooth until the permanent crown is ready.
At the second visit, we cement the permanent crown and make sure that it feels comfortable and natural and that your bite is correct. That’s it!

Dental crowns can be constructed from a range of materials. Your dentist will discuss which material will be most appropriate for your individual situation. The cost of dental crowns does vary depending on the type of crown required. Your dentist will be able to provide you with a fee estimate prior to completing any treatment.

Who May Need A Crown

Reasons your tooth may be compromised and require a crown include:

  • Dental injury resulting in a cracked or chipped tooth
  • Cosmetic imperfections of a tooth
  • A tooth that has undergone root canal therapy
  • A tooth weakened due to decay, clenching or grinding

A dental crown may also be used to cover a discoloured tooth, provided that it is determined to be the best option. A crown can be made from several materials: metal, porcelain, ceramic, resin or a combination of these. Our dentists will discuss these options with you in order to help you decide which type is best for you based on several factors that include longevity, appearance and cost. Crowns can restore the function of your teeth and return confidence to your smile!
