Aurora Dentistry offers dental crowns for patients who are looking to repair damaged teeth.
What are dental crowns?
A dental crown is an artificial tooth cap used to cover a damaged or decayed tooth. A crown restores the healthy look of an original tooth by strengthening and protecting it. Crowns can also be used to cover a discoloured or misshapen tooth.
When are dental crowns needed?
- To cover a dental implant
- To protect a weak tooth
- To restore a broken tooth
- To cover and support a tooth with a large filling
- To hold a dental bridge in place
- To cover misshapened or severely discolored teeth
- To make a cosmetic modification
How long does this procedure take?
Dental crowns can usually be placed in just two visits. In the first visit, the tooth is prepared by removing any decay and impressions are made to build the crown and a temporary one is placed.
On the next visit, which should be about two weeks later, the temporary crown is replaced with the permanent one.
