This Form of Cosmetic Dentistry Can Change Your Smile & Oral Health
Our Vancouver dental team can restore your smile with the help of Dental Crowns Downtown Vancouver; customized dental caps that are placed over a tooth after it's suffered from decay, has been fractured or broken, or attached to a dental implant. They're incredibly durable, long-lasting, and look and feel just like your natural teeth. The end result is a beautiful, natural smile that you'll always feel confident in.
Dental Crowns Are Made From Durable Materials
Robson Square Dental will be assessing your teeth and prepares your tooth, we'll discuss the best material choice for you. Typically, dental crowns are made from porcelain; a very durable and natural-looking dental material. This is also a great option for people with metal allergies. Other common materials used are ceramic, composite resin, or porcelain fused to metal. Placing custom dental crowns will typically take at least two visits.
During your first appointment, we'll prepare the damaged tooth or remove tooth decay and then take molds that will be sent to a dental lab. During your next appointment, we'll be able to place your permanent crown. In the meantime, you'll be given a temporary crown.

Dental Crowns Can Be Used To Restore Patients' Smiles
Restore Decayed Tooth
Decayed teeth need to be protected from future infections, but sometimes this can't be accomplished with small fillings. That's where a dental crown can come in. The infection will be removed, the tooth will be prepared, and the custom dental crown will be placed and sealed by dental cement.
Restore Broken/Fractured Tooth
Cracked, broken or fractured teeth need to be taken care of in a timely manner, otherwise, bacteria and infection can make their way into the crack. If cracked or broken teeth cannot be fixed with veneers or fillings, a dental crown will be used. Again, the tooth will be prepared to an abutment, a mold will be made of your mouth, and a custom dental crown can be placed.
Following Dental Implant Placement
Dental implants help to replace missing teeth. They're surgically placed and once healed, will need a tooth replacement attached. While your mouth heals, you'll be given either a healing cap or a temporary crown until your custom crown can be placed.
Following Root Canal Therapy
Severe tooth decay that has reached your tooth's root and nerve system will require root canal therapy. Not only does this help prevent further infection from spreading, but it helps relieve you of pain and keeps your smile healthy. After this dental procedure, your dentist will discuss placing a dental crown with you to protect your tooth long-term from further damage and restore its appearance.
