Dental Crown In Newmarket | Repair and Strengthen a Damaged Tooth
As a cosmetic restoration, a dental crown in generally utilized in order to strengthen a tooth, reshape it, to enhance your level of comfort, or your enhance your smile's esthetic appeal. Crowns are most often used to enhance:
- Teeth that are broken
- Teeth that have worn down
- Partially destroyed by tooth decay
- Teeth that had root canal therapy
- To prepare for a dental bridge (teeth surrounding the bridge require a strong supporting structure)
The dental crown is "cemented" onto a specific tooth and fully envelops the portion of your tooth, above the gum line. This renders the crown into the tooth's new outer layer. Crowns can be fabricated using porcelain, metal (precious or non-precious), or a mix of both. Porcelain crowns are generally preferred because as they appear natural.
Crowns are needed when there is insufficient tooth strength remaining to support a filling. Unlike fillings, which apply the restorative material directly into your mouth, a crown is fabricated prior to being placed into your mouth.
Here at Davisview Dental, your crown is created in a lab using your tooth's unique impression which allows a dental laboratory technician to examine all aspects of your bite and jaw movements. Your crown is then sculpted just for you so that your bite and jaw movements function normally once the crown is placed.
