A crown is a covering that encompasses the entire tooth surface restoring it to its ideal shape and size. A crown is normally placed in circumstances where the tooth cannot be adequately restored with fillings or other types of restorations.

A common type of material used to make crowns is porcelain. In some instances gold or a combination of gold and porcelain is used. Both porcelain and gold crowns are durable and will last for many years. Porcelain is created to match or improve the shape, size and colour of your teeth, giving you a natural, and long-lasting beautiful smile. A gold crown has an extremely low risk of fracture and it is difficult for plaque to adhere to it.

Reasons a Crown Might Be Needed:

  • Repairing significantly broken or fractured teeth,
  • Cosmetically enhancing teeth (including closure of gaps between teeth and discolourations and misalignment of teeth),
  • Repairing badly decayed teeth, where there is not enough strength or structure left in the tooth to support a normal filling restoration,
  • Repairing fractured fillings, and
  • Providing strength and durability to a tooth that has had to undergo root canal therapy.

What’s Involved In Getting a Crown?

Getting a crown placed in your mouth will usually require two visits to our kanata dental office. On your first visit our Kanata cosmetic dentist will re-contour your tooth and take a mold or impression. The mold is used to create a crown that will be custom fit to your mouth. Before you leave your first appointment, a temporary crown will be created to protect the reshaped tooth until your real crown is ready.

Between your first and second appointment the molds created of your tooth will be sent off to a dental laboratory where the technicians will create your “new tooth” out of the material chosen, in either porcelain or gold.

During your second visit back at our office, our Kanata, ON dentist will remove the temporary crown and clean the prepared tooth. The dentist will then carefully place the real crown over the tooth. Before the tooth is cemented in place, the Kanata dentist will ensure that the final product is a proper fit and measure to ensure the spacing and bite are accurate.

As always, maintaining the long-term reliability of your crown will be dependent on your continual optimal home dental care and regular visits with your dentist and hygienist.
