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?
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.
