Dental crowns are prosthetic devices that are used to cap a damaged tooth to either prevent it from fracturing further or to replace an already fractured tooth. They are permanently bonded to teeth to help maintain form and structure. As one of the top providers of dental crowns in Nanaimo the North Ridge Dental Clinic can help you decide which type of crown is right for you.
Making Your Nanaimo Dental Crowns
One of the first steps toward making a dental crown is reducing the size of the existing tooth so it can fit properly. Our dentist will then make an impression for the exact mould of the crown. A temporary crown is then put in place until the permanent crown can be made in the lab. When it is ready, we then cement in the crown permanently.
Crowns are designed to last a lifetime regardless of material (porcelain, gold, ceramic, etc.), but it is still important to practice good oral hygiene to ensure longevity. If you have any questions about a crown or would like to schedule an appointment, please do not hesitate to call us.
