Dental Crowns - Dentures PEI - Family Dentistry

Do you struggle to do the most simple and menial of tasks such as chewing, talking, or even smiling? Is it because you have a tooth, or several teeth that are damaged due to wear and tear? If the answer is yes to both these questions, then surely you are in need of a dental crown or dental cap. At Northwest Dentistry, we are pleased to offer you dental crowns as a part of our services under the umbrella of cosmetic dentistry. 

Dental crowns are designed to fully enclose a damaged tooth, not only improving or enhancing the visual appearance of the tooth, but strengthening it as well. Dental crowns are also cemented onto your existing tooth, enabling a more stable and sturdy fit. There are several reasons as to why dental crowns are beneficial. This includes the restoration of severely damaged or decayed teeth, supporting dental bridges or dental implants, and concealing discoloured teeth. In addition, dental crowns are often made with various types of materials including stainless steel, metals, resin, ceramics, and porcelain. Tooth coloured materials like ceramics and porcelain are often preferred by patients as opposed to metal based materials, because it enables a more natural appearance when it is placed on your tooth.

If you are in need of a dental crown or dental cap, we can assist you throughout the entire process. The first step is a dental examination, where Dr. McLean will prepare and shape your tooth for the dental crown. Once a mould of the affected tooth has been formed it will be sent to a lab where the completed dental crown will be applied upon your second visit. Contact us today for more information.
