Dental Crowns in St. Albert
Dental crowns are a popular choice for our patients who require a long-lasting, natural-looking tooth replacement. We offer two methods of getting your custom-fitted crown. Our dentists will review the options with you to determine your best options. Our CEREC device allows us to make dental crowns in the office on the same day as your procedure. We can also send your impression to the dental lab.
What Is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is used to cover a damaged, broken, or reduced tooth to provide protection. The crown is shaped out of durable material to feel like and resemble your natural tooth. You’ll be able to bite and chew as you did before. If you choose composite resin or porcelain for your crown, only you and your dentist will know it’s not real.
When Will I Need a Dental Crown?
We typically recommend a dental crown following a dental procedure such as a root canal to strengthen the remaining portion of the natural tooth. Crowns can also be installed on top of a dental implant to replace a missing or extracted tooth. Dental crowns can also be used to improve the appearance of a severely chipped or cracked tooth.
