What Are Dental Crowns?

From accidents to decay, there are many factors that can cause significant damage to your teeth. Fractures, cavities and loss of shape are some of the common issues. Dental crowns are prosthetic devices for your damaged teeth. Available in a wide variety of materials, the cap-like prosthetics cover up your damaged teeth. In the process, the crown-shaped covers can restore the function of your damaged teeth and ensure they look healthy.

Do You Need Dental Crowns?

A consultation at North Ridge Dental Clinic can tell you whether you are a candidate for dental crowns. Generally, you would need a dental crown in the following cases:

  • Preventing a weak tooth from cracking
  • Protecting a broken or worn out tooth
  • Covering a dental implant or a root canal
  • Covering a tooth with a dental filling
  • Getting a dental bridge
  • Restoring the appearance of your tooth


Types of Dental Crowns

When it comes to dental crowns, there is a lot of variety in the materials. Depending on factors like cost, strength and durability, you can get the most suitable crown for yourself at North Ridge Dental Clinic in Nanaimo.


Let us have a look at the different types of crowns:


  • Porcelain: Porcelain crowns look and feel natural and are often preferred for front teeth. They are free from toxins and hence make for a healthy option.
  • Metal: Metals like gold, nickel, and chromium are often used to make crowns. These crowns are long-lasting and there is no risk of chipping or breaking.
  • Porcelain-fused-to-metal: These crowns combine the benefits of porcelain and metal. While the porcelain ensures natural-looking crowns, the metal contributes to durability.
  • Ceramic: Ceramic crowns are made from a strong and translucent material called Zirconia. They don’t wear down easily and provide great aesthetics.
  • Composite resin: Crowns made of resins are known for their affordability. Although they are more prone to wear and tear, they are widely used for their cost-efficiency.

Getting a Dental Crown 

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 and create an 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 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 crowns in Nanaimo or would like to schedule an appointment, please do not hesitate to call us.
