At Sandy Hill Dental Centre in Ottawa, we can offer you suitable dental crown options to cover your damaged teeth.
What is a dental crown?
A dental crown completely covers a tooth, giving it structure and support. With proper oral hygiene and care, a crown can be a solution for the function of your smile.
Why a dental crown?
If a tooth can't be repaired with a filling, or another dental procedure, then we might recommend a crown. Crowns can be made of porcelain, zirconia or metal alloys.
How does the procedure for dental crowns work?
You will usually need to visit the dentist twice to have a crown. At the first appointment. Dr. Major prepares your tooth for the placement of the permanent crown. Next she takes an impression of your tooth and the gum area around it. Finally, Dr. Major makes a temporary crown to protect the area. The impression is sent to a lab so that lab technicians can create a crown customized to your tooth.
At the second appointment, Dr. Major permanently cements the crown.
Sandy Hill Dental Centre offers a comprehensive range of dentistry services for children, adults, and seniors.
