Dental Crowns in Kanata Ontario

One common type of dental restoration that is used to treat impaired teeth are dental crowns. Dental crowns, or dental caps, can be used to treat teeth that are decayed, chipped, cracked, stained or damaged. Besides improving the tooth’s overall appearance, crowns help to strengthen and rebuild the tooth’s overall structure.

Compared to other types of dental restorations, such as bonded fillings, inlays or onlays, dental crowns treat the entire visible surface area of the tooth. This means that once it is placed, a crown essentially becomes a tooth’s new outer surface. As a result, this makes crowns an ideal choice when larger portions of a tooth have to be treated.

Dental crowns can be made from a number of different materials such as gold alloy, porcelain or ceramic, or a mixture of this substances. We also offer Cerec (one visit crowns) which allow us to create strong attractive crowns in less than an hour. Our crown and bridge dental team can help you to choose the right crown for your smile.
