Dental Crowns in Markham
We aim to be the best dentist in Markham. We want your experience with any major procedure to be a good where you feel safe and relaxed.
You take good care of your teeth, but sometimes, damage occurs. You might find yourself needing a root canal or a filling, or you might discover a broken tooth that is causing a lot of pain.
If your tooth is damaged but still partially intact, a dental crown might be the right solution for you. A crown, also known as a cap, helps restore the appearance, shape, and function of the original tooth.
What is a dental crown?
Damage can happen to teeth naturally. Over time, teeth wear down, can become damaged and can decay. In certain instances, fillings can be used to help remedy the problems, but sometimes they aren’t enough. That’s when a crown might come in.
Crowns can be made from porcelain, metal, resin and ceramics, and they are placed over top of the original tooth to restore its natural look and function. These caps are then affixed to the original tooth using a dental crown glue like cement.
Depending on where the cap is to be placed, the team at Filgiano Dentistry might recommend a particular material for the crown to be made of. For instance, if the tooth is to be capped at the front of your mouth (where people see your smile), we generally recommend a porcelain material. Porcelain provides a more natural look, and is very aesthetic.
If you require a cap for your back teeth, a stronger ceramic crown might be ideal. While these are not as aesthetic as porcelain, they are very strong which is very important on your back teeth, as the take a lot of force.
Whatever the budget or your aesthetic desire, the team at Filgiano Dentistry will work with you to determine the best solution for your dental crown.
Dental crown procedure
At Filgiano Dentistry, we are happy to offer the best dental service in Markham. If you require a dental crown, we’ll walk you through each step of the process to ensure that you’re not caught by any surprises.
A typical crown procedure involves the following steps:
- A local anaesthetic will be applied to make your procedure painless.
- The tooth that is to be crowned is filed down to make room for the cap’s installation.
- A scan of your filed-down tooth and those surrounding it is taken. This allows the team at Filgiano to make a perfectly-fitting crown for you.
- So you don’t have to walk around with an awkward gap in your smile, you will receive a temporary dental cap that was made from an impression of your original tooth.
- When your new crown is ready, you’ll return to the team at Filgiano Dentistry and we’ll make sure that your new cap fits just right. Assuming everything is perfect, we’ll cement the cap in place, and your smile will be restored to its natural beauty.
If you have any questions or concerns at any step of the way, our team is ready to help. Just ask us, and we’ll be happy to provide whatever answers we can.
