Should Your Tooth Wear a Dental Crown?

General Dentist and Cosmetic Dental Services in Edmonton, Alberta

Posted: June 27, 2011

For conditions in which porcelain veneers won’t provide adequate protection to additional tooth damage, dental crowns may provide a strong, long-lasting solution.A dental crown may be necessary to:

  • Protect a decayed or prematurely worn tooth from further damage
  • Restore a tooth’s natural shape and function
  • Cap a tooth after a root canal
  • Provide additional support for a dental bridge
  • Cover and strengthen a tooth with a filling
  • Cap a dental implant

Unlike porcelain veneers, which are used to address cosmetic issues and minor tooth problems, dental crowns can be an ideal solution for patients who suffer from periodontal disease, substantial tooth decay, misshaped teeth, and teeth worn due to poor dental habits such as tooth grinding.

There are three types of dental crowns:

  • Porcelain crowns, which provide an aesthetically pleasing natural look
  • Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns, which are more durable than stand-alone porcelain while retaining the look of your natural teeth
  • Gold crowns, which are long-lasting and durable but highly visible

The type of dental crown used depends on your individual condition, your cosmetic goals, your oral habits and your overall dental health. An examination by Edmonton dentist Dr. Christine Fialka-Eshenko will determine the best options for you.

If you live in the Edmonton, Alberta, area and are interested in learning more about dental crowns, please contact Dr. Fialka-Eshenko at Focus on Smiles to schedule a consultation.
