Dental Crowns in New Westminster
Dental crowns are realistic tooth replacements that can be used for both restorative and cosmetic purposes. Covering the visible portion of a tooth, a dental crown can restore the shape, size, and strength of a tooth. Crowns are often used when a tooth is damaged, cracked, or broken, or after a root canal treatment.
How Dental Crowns Work
To place a dental crown, your dentist will need to begin by removing some of the outermost tooth material so that there is room for the crown to be placed. Next, your crown will be custom-made for you in a laboratory from ceramic, metal, porcelain, or resin. During this time, we’ll provide you with a temporary crown so you can chew safely, without damaging your tooth. When the permanent crown is ready, you’ll come back so we can secure it in place.
Why Choose Dental Crowns?
Many patients appreciate the look, feel, and affordability of dental crowns. Since they are stabilized by the natural tooth root, they are durable and strong. They can be very long-lasting depending on the material chosen, your dental hygiene practices, and how much wear and tear the crowns are subjected to. The cost of your crowns will depend on the materials you choose, so talk to our dental team about your options.
