Dental Crowns Near You
Also referred to as dental “caps,” dentists use dental crowns to protect and strengthen damaged teeth. Dental crowns are made to cover the visible portion of your teeth to restore the function and appearance of your smile. At Queen Street Dental, we are happy to provide our patients dental crowns in Spruce Grove.
What Are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns are a form of cosmetic and restorative dentistry and are used to correct a number of dental conditions, such as:
- Weakened teeth
- Stained teeth
- Fractured or broken teeth
- Misshapen teeth
To place a dental crown, our dentist near you will need to permanently alter the shape of your natural tooth, so the crown fits perfectly in your bite. This means that getting a dental crown is a permanent decision and should only be done if it is the best option for your overall oral health. Once you choose to place a dental crown over a tooth, that tooth will always require the support and protection of a crown.
How Are Dental Crowns Placed?
It will take two visits to Queen Street Dental to get dental crowns in Spruce Grove. At your first visit, our dentist will remove a portion of your tooth enamel and reshape your tooth to make space for the crown. They will then take impressions of your tooth, which will be sent to a dental lab, where your personalized dental crown will be fabricated. Our dentist will provide you with a temporary crown in the interim.
When your permanent crown is ready to be placed, you will need to return to our dental clinic. At this time, our dentist will place your custom-designed crown and make any adjustments necessary so that it fits perfectly within your bite and provides you with a stunning smile.
Caring for Your Dental Crown
With the right care, dental crowns can last for a decade. To get the most out of your dental crown, ensure that you:
- Avoid hard and crunchy foods
- Maintain good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing daily
- Schedule regular dental cleanings and exams
