Dental Crown Mississauga
Dental crown (also called a Cap) is often needed to restore the tooth’s shape, strength and structural function. If a tooth has been damaged or decayed to an extent where a filling will not suffice, dental crown is the right treatment plan.
A dental crown is a covering that is placed over the effected tooth.
The tooth is prepared by removing any decayed area and shaping the tooth to be capped. The cap is then cemented in place to protect the tooth for years to come. Crowns are also used to reinforce a tooth that has been badly cracked or broken, as well as to seal a tooth after root canal therapy.
Once the tooth is shaped, the dentist will take necessary impressions of the prepared tooth. Then impressions along with information about the shade will be given to a dental technician to fabricate a crown in Mississauga laboratory. The crown is usually returned to the office in two to three weeks.
Dental crowns can be constructed from a variety of materials, which include porcelain, ceramic, metal, or a mixture of these. If you’re dealing with a damaged tooth, or think you can benefit from having a dental crown, contact Park Royal Dentistry office to schedule an appointment.
