Dental Crowns in Coquitlam
If you have a tooth that is chipped, cracked, or discoloured, your trusted dentist may recommend a dental crown to restore the look, feel, and function of your natural tooth. A dental crown can be used to protect a vulnerable tooth or to cover a misshaped or discoloured tooth, both preserving the tooth’s function and beauty.
How Dental Crowns Work
Dental crowns are made out of a porcelain or composite material that can be cured to match the colour of your natural smile. They are hollow shells that cover the natural tooth and the gum line. Your dentist will first shave down the affected tooth, if needed, and take impressions or digital images of your teeth before sending it off to a lab for custom fabrication.
When to Consider Dental Crowns
Dental crowns are cost-effective, aesthetically appealing, and durable, mimicking your teeth’s natural shape while maintaining proper alignment. When done correctly, dental crowns can effectively restore the look and function of your teeth without the need for a full tooth extraction.
