Dental Crowns in Oshawa and WhitbyPorcelain Crowns

A porcelain dental crown is a custom fitted covering that sits over the top of a damaged and restored tooth. The dental crown creates a surface that protects, covers, seals and strengthens your tooth.

Crowns are used in many different scenarios and often allow us to save a tooth rather than turning to an implant.

Situations where a crown may be the solution include;
  • Larger fillings that have broken down or have formed decay around them may need a crown to save the tooth.
  • A cracked tooth may need a crown to hold it together. Be careful not to wait too long as an untreated cracked tooth can become sensitive or eventually break.
  • Teeth that are very sensitive, either from a lot of "wear" or from receded gums sometimes require crowns to seal and protect the teeth from hot and cold sensitivity.
  • A tooth that has broken may be too weak to hold a filling. A crown will hold the tooth together and prevent it from breaking again. If the fracture is too deep, Root Canal Therapy may be required before the tooth is crowned.
  • A tooth that has undergone Root Canal Therapy will need a crown to properly seal and protect the tooth.

A crown may be the solution to saving that tooth; we will evaluate your needs depending on your oral health and the condition of your teeth.
