Oftentimes, dental bonding may not be enough to protect heavily-filled teeth from further deterioration, which is where dental crowns come into play. Dental crowns are made of ceramic material and cover damaged teeth.
There are many other reasons our Aurora dentist may recommend the use of a crown, including:
Dental crowns come in customized shapes and colours based on your personal preferences and our Aurora dentist's suggestions. There are many options for material choice that depend on the patient's unique situation and the ultimate desired outcome.
A dental crown procedure at our Smiles Dental Aurora consists of two steps. First, your tooth (and surrounding teeth if needed) will be shaped and prepared to accommodate the crown. Our Aurora dentist, Dr. Shasha will make an impression of the tooth and send it to the lab. In the meantime, a temporary crown will be placed on the tooth. The second step will be in a few weeks, at which point the temporary crown will be removed and the custom-fitted dental crown will be placed.
