Porcelain Dental Crowns Calgary NW
What is a Dental Crown?
Dental Crowns are primarily manufactured teeth. Made from porcelain or zirconium, it can be coloured and texture-matched to your existing teeth. It can also be made of gold alloys for improved strength when replacing a back tooth, or it can have a metal base with porcelain bonded to the exterior to give it durability and a natural look.
How is a Dental Crown fitted?
The existing tooth which is damaged, weakened or fractured is repaired with a dental crown. Any decay is removed. The tooth is reshaped, and an impression is taken, which is sent to a dental laboratory to fabricate the crown. You will have a temporary crown while the lab tech works on the final crown. The crown fits like a cap over the newly shaped tooth and is cemented or bonded into position, thereby restoring the tooth structure.
