What is a dental crown?
Why would I need a crown?
A dental crown is a solid shell that covers a natural tooth permanently. It is usually made of porcelain, although other materials may be used. They come in all the shapes, colours and sizes of a tooth so that they blend in with the rest of your teeth.
Crowns are used for several cases:
Many crowns are made in labs, requiring two trips to the dentist: the first, for a fitting that is then sent to the lab, and a second for placement of the permanent crown.
Our clinic offers you the opportunity to do it all with one appointment! Leveraging the technology of a CEREC camera, we specially produce the crown in our clinic for immediate placement. Here’s to doing it in one go!
