Crowns from your Oakridge Dental Office
A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain (tooth-coloured) are the most popular. They are highly durable and will last many years, but like most dental restorations, they will eventually need to be replaced by our South Vancouver dental team. Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and colour of your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.
Reasons for crowns:
- Broken or fractured tooth
- Cosmetic enhancement
- Decayed teeth
- Fractured fillings
- Large fillings
- Tooth has a root canal
