Do You Need to Replace A Missing or Broken Tooth?

16TH AVENUE DENTAL is pleased to offer NW Calgary Dental Crowns for patients looking for a reliable restoration that corrects the function of their teeth.

What is a Dental Crown?

Dental Crowns are also known as caps and are hollow artificial teeth… This text opens the American Dental Association’s Mouth Healthy Crowns blog article in a new tab … used to restore broken or decayed teeth. They help protect the remaining natural tooth structure from further damage.

They are made from a number of materials. Gold, full porcelain, or porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns are the most common. Zirconia Dental Crowns are the most popular crowns used by dentists today because of their durability and natural aesthetics.

Why do I Need a Dental Crown?

A Dental Crown is designed to cover the existing crown on a natural tooth or to finish a dental implant. They are a strong, long-term restoration if you take good care of them with regular brushing, flossing, and visits to see Dr. My Le for checkups and cleanings.

You may need a crown if you have had a:

  • Large filling in a tooth
  • Root canal
  • Broken or severely worn down tooth
  • Stained, unaesthetic or poorly shaped tooth

How Long will a Dental Crown Last?

Dental Crowns last, on average, 15 to 20 years when taken care of properly. Dental Crowns may not be as strong as your natural teeth, so the following precautions are strongly recommended:

  • Wear a nightguard if you clench or grind your teeth at night.
  • Do not bite down on hard objects (i.e. ice, forks, bottle caps, etc.)
  • Do not use your tooth as a tool to open or cut into things
