Dental Crowns

Dental Crowns in Airdrie AB

Crowns are prosthetic and attached to teeth, only removable by a dental professional at Sonata Dental. Airdrie dental crowns are meant to cover teeth that have been damaged, strengthening the tooth and improving its shape and appearance. Crowns can also be put onto implants to allow teeth to function normally. They are matched to the color of your teeth, so they look natural while providing protection.

You may need a crown on your teeth in order to:

  • Replace a filling
  • Protect teeth from fractures
  • Attach bridges to teeth
  • Restore teeth
  • Cover dental implants
  • Hide discoloration
  • Protect teeth that have had root canal therapy

How Crowns Work

Installing a crown will typically be done in two separate dental visits to your dentist. The first visit will consist of your dentist examining the tooth in order to determine whether or not it can support a crown on it. Then they will file it down in order to prepare it for the placement of a crown. If the tooth has been broken or damaged, it may need to be filled in so that it can get the crown placed on it securely.

After the filing has been completed, impressions of your teeth will be taken and sent to a lab so that a crown can be made for your tooth. In the meantime, your dentist will provide you with a temporary crown to protect the tooth while the permanent crown is being designed. When it is complete, you will return to the dentist for a second appointment.

At the second appointment, the temporary crown is detached from your tooth, and your permanent crown is positioned and bonded to the tooth. Your crown may take a while to feel normal in the mouth, but it will function as if it was a regular tooth over time.

Your Sonata Dental dentist in Airdrie will provide you with a crown to protect and strengthen teeth. There is no need to worry about damage to teeth when a crown has been secured onto your teeth. Speak with one of our representatives today about getting a crown for your tooth.
