Appleway Dental Clinics Offers Dental Crowns in the Red Deer Area

Cover up Misshapen or Discoloured Teeth
Appleway Dental Clinics in Red Deer offers many general dentistry solutions to help restore the aesthetics and functionality of your natural smile. As such, we provide dental crown procedures for patients of all ages. Crowns (also called dental caps) help restore your teeth’s natural shape, size, appearance, and strength. Crowns are typically used to cover up misshapen or discoloured teeth.

Crowns are Constructed of Various Materials
Crowns cover the visible area of your tooth at and above your gum line and can be constructed of various materials, including stainless steel, metals, all-ceramic, all-porcelain, all-resin, and porcelain-fused-to-metal. If there isn’t enough of your tooth left to sustain a large filling, a crown may be used to help support it. Crowns also help secure dental bridges and cover dental implants.

What to Expect from the Dental Crown Procedure
Prep work for a crown involves looking at previous fillings, fractures, and root canals to determine the strength of your tooth’s structure. Your dentist may need to take some X-rays to check your tooth’s roots and surrounding bones. If your tooth has significant amounts of decay or a high risk of infection or injury to its pulp is expected, a root canal treatment may have to be performed first. Sometimes fillings may be required to support the crown.

Once you’re ready for a dental crown, your tooth will need to be shaved down to allow enough room for it. Next, your dentist will create an impression of your tooth and bite so the crown can be custom-made just for you. Typically, you’ll have to come back for a second visit to have the crown placed once these impressions come back from the lab. Your dentist may construct a temporary crown to cover and protect your tooth during the interim.
