Dental Crowns

Dental Crowns

City Dental Centre offers dental crowns in Surrey, BC.   Dental crowns are used to cover decayed, cracked or damaged teeth in order to add strength to the tooth and improve the tooth’s appearance.  Often, dental crowns are used when a tooth requires a very large filling or is weak.  They can also be used to cover discolored or unattractive teeth.  A dental crown functions basically like a cap that sits over an existing tooth, although dental crowns can also be used over dental implants and as part of dental bridges.

Dental Crown Procedure:

A dental crown can be completed in two office visits.  During the first visit, an impression is taken of the tooth to be covered and a temporary crown is placed in the mouth while the permanent crown is being crafted.  During the second visit, the permanent dental crown is fitted comfortably and then cemented into place for a permanent restoration.

Types of Dental Crowns:

  • Porcelain crowns or ceramic crowns– These dental crowns provide the most natural look, but are not as strong and durable as porcelain-fused-to-metal or metal crowns.  They are a good option for front teeth because of their superior looks.
  • Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns– These dental crowns also look like natural teeth, although they can sometimes show dark areas from the underlying metal.  They may also be prone to chipping or breaking over time.  They are a good option for any type of teeth, however.
  • Metal crowns– These dental crowns are among the strongest and most durable, but they are not as attractive as porcelain, ceramic or porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns.  For this reason, they are best used on molars, which withstand a lot of chewing force but are not as easily seen.
  • Resin crowns– These dental crowns have the aesthetic look of porcelain or ceramic crowns but are not as strong and durable.  They are less expensive than other options but may wear down or break more quickly.
