What Are Dental Crowns?

A dental crown is a cap-like structure on your teeth to provide sufficient strength and longevity. Dental crowns can be made of metal, ceramics, porcelain, or resin. Crowns help improve the functionality and visual appeal of your teeth. They are extremely helpful for patients whose teeth have been damaged due to tooth decay. A crown can restore a dental implant, a worn-down tooth, or a tooth with a large filling. Dental crowns can last several years, provided you take adequate measures for their maintenance.

Trust Bite Dental Works for exceptional assistance when you need dental crowns in SW Calgary.

We will keep you informed at every step of the procedure and guide you about how to take effective care of the crowns.

Type of Crowns

Nowadays, a large variety of crowns is available based on various factors such as constituent material, estimated cost, overall care and precautions needed, the convenience of use and so on. You can explore our curated list of different types of dental crowns:

Three-quarter Crown - It is used for cusp-fractures, i.e. when the pointed part of the tooth is fractured. This part is meant to ease chewing of food.

Full Crown - This crown is applied on decayed or cracked teeth or when a root canal is treated.

Metal - Metal crowns are durable and can withstand biting and chewing pressure. They are often made of gold,

Porcelain-fused Metal - These crowns are a hybrid of porcelain and metal. Porcelain matches existing teeth, while metal is needed for strength. These crowns colour-matched to your existing teeth and have a natural appearance.

All-ceramic or All-porcelain - This type of crown allows for the best colour-matching similar to normal teeth.

It is always better to acquire substantial information about all the crown options available, so you may make an informed choice. Reach out to our dental consultants in SW Calgary, so they may help you select durable, affordable, and effective dental crowns for your teeth.

How Long Does it Take to Get a Dental Crown?

A traditional dental crown treatment is completed in two appointments. In the middle of these two appointments, you will receive a temporary crown for 1-2 weeks.

However, not everyone can devote such a long time to the procedure. If there is an emergency or you have time constraints, you can opt for a CEREC Crown System. It is a same-day dental crown procedure that you may opt for a quick outcome. Bite Dental Works is proud to perform procedures on our patients using this  technology. CEREC, one appointment crowns, create a porcelain crown in a single visit to rectify chipped, cracked, and damaged teeth.

A digital image of the tooth is captured using a special camera and brought to a screen next to the dental chair. After this, our founder Dr. Hoe, guides the crown fabrication machine through the design of your crown. This near-instant production is possible by Primescan’s photorealistic and highly accurate data. Its dynamic depth scan technology enables perfect sharpness and outstanding precision. It is the most accurate intraoral scanners in the market, delivering complete 3D structures of everything in view.

Why You Should Opt for Same-day Crowns?

In the past, a dental crown would require multiple visits and the necessity of a temporary crown till a lab-created permanent crown was fitted on the affected tooth. As opposed to this, CEREC technology creates a porcelain crown and a long-term solution in a single visit. Look at some good reasons why you should go ahead with same-day crowns:

  • No temporary crown needed: You’ll receive a new smile in one visit. There’s no need to fit a temporary crown before you get the permanent one.

  • No return visits required: Temporary crowns aren’t a part of this process! In simple words, you won’t have to return for the fitting of a new crown. All that is completed within one appointment with the help of CEREC Primescan-created crowns.

  • No dental putty used: Digital mapping means you won’t have to deal with the discomfort of dental putty for a manual dental impression.

  • Porcelain: CEREC crowns have the same characteristics as tooth enamel. This is what makes them durable without compromising on their quality.

  • Precise fit: The technology that makes these crowns possible is precise-digital scanning. It ensures that the crown fits precisely, considering your bite patterns and tooth contours.

  • Durability: Same-day crowns withstand the test of time and are just as durable as traditional crowns.

  • Aesthetics: Their precise design makes same-day dental crowns look like natural teeth. You can also choose from multiple colour shades to restore your original smile.

  • Comfort: CEREC Primescan technology ensures that your crown is designed with such detail that it offers the same comfort as your real teeth.
