A dental crown or cap is placed over a diseased tooth to restore function, shape, size, appearance, and structure. As a comparably affordable option, they are used to fix a minor fracture or chipped tooth, teeth gaps, discoloration, and malformation—easily hiding minor imperfections. We typically suggest porcelain materials since they are more durable and stain-resistant than ceramic.
This process for crowns is usually completed in two dental visits. First, we remove a portion of your tooth enamel and take an impression to create a model and send it to the dental laboratory for fabrication. After a few weeks, we receive the finished product, set the crown to check the fitting, and make adjustments as needed before cementing it permanently.
If you are looking for an affordable tooth restoration option, dental crowns are an excellent choice. Call us at (416) 966-3368 today to schedule your appointment.
