Dental crowns

Dental crowns

Several types of crowns may be suggested by your dentist, depending on your situation and needs.

Porcelain crowns (CEREC) and inlays

Full or ¾ crown

  • The entire procedure is completed in a single appointment, using only local anesthesia
  • Requires no embarrassing temporary crown
  • Made on-site using porcelain
  • Strengthens the tooth
  • Good colour stability
  • Protects against the risk of fracture
  • Provides greater resistance to effects of chewing
  • Replaces conventional fillings (amalgam or composite)

Laboratory-made crown

Two appointments necessary. At the first appointment, the dentist will:

  • Prepare the tooth
  • Take the impression
  • Send the information to the dental laboratory for the crown to be fabricated

 

At the second appointment, the dentist will:

  • Check the colour, shape and adaptation of the crown
  • Cement the crown in place

 

A crown is not just a cosmetic solution; it can also restore a tooth requiring repair, whether it is decayed, broken, misshapen, stained or has a defective filling.
