A dental crown is a part of restorative dental treatments used to replace severely damaged or decayed teeth. They are made of different materials that usually match the colour and texture of your natural teeth. These are also referred to as caps for your teeth which aim to completely cover the damaged tooth, making it stronger and more attractive.
Getting your dental crown in Calgary is critical because they prolong the life of a tooth and protect it from further damage.
Dental crowns are for the treatment of various dental problems. Crowns are needed immediately after root canal treatment to protect the treated tooth. There are not many specific symptoms for dental crown requirements; however, a crown is necessary in case of a weakened or broken tooth, which may result from decay or a large filling.
Putting a crown on a tooth helps protect weak teeth, restore the natural shape of broken teeth, prevent further breakage of cracked teeth, and support teeth with large fillings.
Dental crowns are not reserved for adults alone. There are customized teeth caps available in our Calgary clinic for children.
The dental crown for children helps protect teeth that are particularly prone to decay due to poor oral hygiene and to restore a severely decayed tooth.
If you are searching in Calgary for dental crowns, Port Dental is the right place. We have a range of tooth crowns available at your disposal. Our primary offerings include-
Ceramic crowns These are used to restore damaged front teeth due to their ability to blend in with the natural colour of teeth.
Porcelain-fused metal crowns These porcelain caps are like ceramic crowns, but the porcelain is attached to a metal base, forming a stronger bond, and thereby making the crown more durable.
Crowns made of gold alloys Such crowns are molar crowns containing a combination of gold, copper, and other metals. These cement the tooth securely and will not fracture or wear away.
Base metal alloy crowns These are made of non-noble metals and provide an extremely strong and durable crown. They are typically used for back molars.
Temporary crowns Made from resins and particularly useful when you need to put the crown on your tooth to protect teeth while waiting for a permanent crown to come.
After crown placement, light sensitivity or discomfort may occur, which will disappear in a few days. Pain can occur while chewing if crown height is high, which can be adjusted by a dentist.
In some cases, the cement used to secure the crown is insufficient or washes out from beneath the crown, resulting in a dislodged crown or the crown completely falling off. In this case, it is recommended to contact us immediately.
Your dental crowns can last a lifetime with proper care. Whether you have a ceramic crown, porcelain crown, or a metal crown – brushing twice daily and flossing helps remove plaque and maintains the health of the teeth and gums. Avoid hard foods such as candy or ice, as these can cause a crown to chip or break.
