Everything You Need To Know About Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are used as caps that are placed on the top of damaged teeth. Their main function is to protect the damaged teeth and restore its shape. Not to mention, it also makes the tooth look natural and improves the beauty of your smile. At Smile Park Dental, we
can carry out dental crown fittings for all our clients, providing a customized service at a reasonable price. You can also contact us if your need to replace or refit a crown. To schedule an appointment, contact our dental clinic in Oakville today!

What material do we use in the crown?

That’s a good question. Well, we use top-quality metal for all our dental crowns and in metals, you can choose between gold, palladium, nickel, chromium, whichever you want. The advantage of using metal is it is long-lasting and low wear and tear. It can easily withstand
biting and chewing forces. You can also choose an all-ceramic or all-porcelain build. It’s a great option if you are allergic to any metal and they provide the best natural colour match compared to any other crown type. Metal can also be fused to porcelain to create a mixed component crown.

Do I need a dental crown?

You can use a dental crown for several reasons; these can be:

  • To protect a weak tooth (possibly from decay) from breaking or to keep it together if
    parts of it are cracked.
  • Covering and offering support to a tooth which does not have much left with a large
    filling
  • Dental crowns can also be used to hold a dental bridge in place
  • Covering misshapen or severely discoloured teeth.
  • Covering a tooth that’s been treated with a root canal.
  • Crowns are used to cover dental implants too
