Dental Crowns

Your North Calgary Choice for Dental Crowns!

If you are interested in a long-term, cost-effective, aesthetic, and durable restoration, a dental crown may be the best treatment option for you. Paramount Dental is pleased to provide many restorative treatment options, including Dental Crowns.

What are Dental Crowns?

Dental Crowns, or “caps” as they are commonly known as, are extensive restorations that cover the entire tooth surface of a damaged tooth, essentially covering or “capping” it in order to restore its appearance and natural shape. Dental Crowns may be the ideal treatment option when previous fillings have broken or fractured, or chipped surfaces are noted, or tooth sensitivity is involved. Crowns are also used to improve the appearance of natural teeth that are malformed, malpositioned or discolored.

What are Dental Crowns made of?

Dental Crowns can be made from various materials including porcelain, Zirconia based porcelain, porcelain fused-to-metal, and full cast metal. Based on numerous factors including esthetics, position within the mouth, habits such as grinding, and your personal preference, a full assessment will be needed to determine which material is appropriate for you.

Some of the indications for requiring a crown are:

  • A previously filled tooth where there now exists more filling than tooth. The existing tooth structure becomes weak and can no longer support the filling.
  • Extensive damage by decay or breakage
  • Discolouration and compromised esthetics
  • Fractures
  • Root canal: After a root canal, teeth tend to become brittle and are more apt to fracture. These teeth need to be protected and strengthened by a crown.
  • Bridges: When missing teeth are replaced with a bridge, adjacent teeth require crowns in order to support the replacement teeth. Crowns strengthen and protect the remaining tooth structure and can improve the appearance of your teeth.

A dental crown is an excellent treatment option when previous fillings have broken, fractured or chipped surfaces are noted, or tooth sensitivity is involved. If you think you might benefit from a crown, call Paramount Dental at (403) 730-9882 to set up a consultation.
