Dental Crowns in SE Calgary

Dental Crowns Near You

Dental crowns are caps that are created to match the structure and colour of your natural teeth and are placed over weakened and damaged teeth to provide them with strength and protection. At Sorenson Dental, we are happy to offer our patients dental crowns in SE Calgary.

What Are Dental Crowns?

Although your teeth are strong, they are not invincible. Over time, your teeth can become damaged due to things such as injuries, wear, and tooth decay. Dental crowns are caps that are used to cover damaged teeth. A dental crown works to restore the appearance of your tooth, as well as its size and strength.

When Are Dental Crowns Necessary?

Your dentist may recommend dental crowns for the following reasons:

  • To provide structure for a previously restored tooth
  • To hold a dental bridge in place
  • To cover a dental implant
  • To protect a weak tooth
  • To cover a tooth that has had root canal therapy

What is the Process for Dental Crowns?

It will take two visits to Sorensen Dental to get your dental crowns in SE Calgary. At your first appointment, our dentist will examine and prepare the tooth. This may include taking x-rays of the tooth and the bone around it and filing down the tooth to make space for your dental crown. The amount of tooth that our dentist may have to file down depends on the type of dental crown you get. After your tooth has been reshaped, our dentist will take an impression of your tooth to send off to a dental lab, where your custom-made crown will be manufactured. In the interim, you will be fitted with a temporary crown.

Our dentist will ensure that everything looks healthy at your second visit before permanently placing your custom-made crown, completing the process.

In some circumstances, you may be able to get dental crowns in just a single appointment. Speak to our dentist to determine if same-day dental crowns are ideal for you.

While dental crowns are a great option for some patients, they are usually not the first choice for restorative treatment due to their invasive nature.
