Dental Crowns are an Excellent Way to Preserve Your Natural Teeth

If you have a damaged tooth, it doesn’t have to be extracted. A dental crown or a cap is a tooth-shaped cover used by dentists to protect a damaged tooth and improve its appearance. While dental crowns can be made from metal, Dr. Rina Kotecha and the team at Dentistry On 10 in Mississauga, Ontario, prefer porcelain because it can be colour-matched to mimic your natural enamel. Once in place, our porcelain dental crowns are virtually undetectable and restore your smile to its original state, if not better.

How a dental crown preserves your tooth

When you have extensive tooth damage or decay, a dental filling or onlay may not be sufficient to fix your tooth. In such cases, dentists prefer dental caps to maintain the structural integrity of your tooth while improving its appearance. 

Unlike dental veneers, dental crowns cover your tooth’s biting surface all the way to your gum line. If you want to figure out how a crown fits over your tooth, think of slipping a thimble over the end of the pencil. In the same way a thimble encases the eraser on your pencil, a dental crown does the same to your tooth.

Dental Crowns Before After
Porcelain crowns are “caps” that cover the teeth. Crowns are indicated for very large fillings that are risk of breaking. In this case old, worn out gold cronws are replaced with tooth coloured porcelain crowns.

The many uses of dental crowns

Crowns do more than just cover your teeth. At Dentistry On 10, our dental team may recommend a dental crown to address numerous dental problems, including: 

  • Holding a cracked or broken tooth together
  • Covering a dental implant
  • Anchoring a dental bridge in place
  • Masking a misshapen or severely discoloured tooth
  • Replacing a worn-out filling

Schedule an Appointment

If you want to experience the “magic” of dental crowns, you only need to commit to at least two dental appointments. During the first visit, we determine your eligibility for a crown, prepare your tooth, and take bite impressions used by our lab technicians to manufacture well-fitting crowns. During your second appointment, we will install your new crown using dental cement. That’s all it takes to rebuild your smile with a dental crown.
