Dental Crowns, Kitsilano | Vancouver BC
Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We replace existing crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth.
Dental Crown is a tooth-shaped cap that covers a damaged tooth above the gum line to restore the normal appearance and function of the tooth. They may be made as all metal (i.e: gold alloys), ceramic fused to metal or all‐ceramic (porcelain). Crowns are made in the laboratory and indicated for severely damaged teeth; i.e: teeth with very large fillings, teeth that have had a root canal, worn down teeth, cracked teeth, fractured teeth and misshapen and/or discolored teeth.
Fitting a crown requires at least two visits to our office. The first appointment would be removal of the decay, reshaping the tooth, and covering it with a temporary plastic crown.
On the following appointment, the final crown will be evaluated and if aesthetic, function and fitness were satisfactory, the crown will be cemented into place.
