Technically, a dental crown is a cap, which is customized to cover the patient’s teeth. In other words, a dental crown can be understood as a covering that is put on your tooth to make your tooth stronger. Dental crowns help improve functionality and increase the visual appeal of teeth. They are extremely helpful for patients whose teeth have been damaged due to tooth decay.
You can consider dental crowns in Calgary when teeth have been damaged or broken due to injury or old metal fillings. Once installed, dental crowns can last for several years, provided you take adequate measures for their maintenance.
There are a variety of dental crowns that are used for different purposes. 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 pointy part of the tooth where you chew is fractured.
Full Crown - Used in cases of tooth decay, cracked teeth, or root canal treated teeth.
Metal – Metal crowns are durable and can withstand biting and chewing forces. They are often made out of gold, platinum, or other base-metal alloys. Since they rarely chip or break, they are a good choice for molars.
Porcelain-Fused Metal – These types of crowns are colour-matched to the rest of your teeth and are a hybrid. The porcelain is used to match existing teeth, but the metal is needed for strength. However, the porcelain can be prone to chipping or breaking.
All-Ceramic or All-Porcelain – This type of crown allows for the best colour-matching similar to normal teeth. You can also consider them if you have an allergy to some types of metal.
Traditionally, getting a dental crown takes two appointments. You will also be required to use a temporary crown for 1-2 weeks. However, if there is an emergency, you have time constraints, or the dentist finds you are a good candidate, you can opt for a CEREC Crown System. You can also consider us for same-day dental crown procedures. Bite Dental Works is proud to perform procedures on our patients using the very latest technologies. CEREC, one appointment crowns create a porcelain crown in a single visit, repairing chipped, cracked, and damaged teeth. A digital image of the tooth is captured using a special camera, instead of creating an impression mold. The digital image is brought to a screen next to the dental chair where Dr. Hoe then guides the machine through the design of your crown. This near-instant production is possible due to the Primescan’s photorealistic and highly accurate data. Its dynamic depth scan technology enables perfect sharpness and outstanding precision. It is the most accurate of all intraoral scanners on the market, right from the very first scan, delivering complete 3D structures of everything in its view.
