Dental Crowns, Port Hope Dentist

Be Proud of Your Smile

Dental crowns are hollow, artificial teeth that are placed over an existing tooth. If you have a damaged or vulnerable tooth, such as one with a large filling or a crack, your dentist may recommend a crown to prevent the issue from becoming worse. They are designed to restore the tooth's original shape, size, and colour.

Crowns can be used in a variety of dental procedures. They may be used to hold a dental bridge in place or cover a dental implant, and they can also be applied following another dental procedure that may weaken the tooth structure, like a root canal.

Crowns are strong and can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain and metal. They look and function like natural teeth, and they can last for 10 years or more with proper care.

When choosing a material for your crown, cost, durability, aesthetics, and strength are all factors that your dentist will take into account.

The Crown Procedure

Placing a dental crown will require two dental appointments. During the first one, your dentist will take an impression of the tooth. The crown will then be constructed based on this customized impression. While your crown is being made, you may be fitted with a temporary crown.

Once your dental crown is ready, you will return for your second appointment. During this appointment, your crown will be set into place. It will also be shaped so that your bite and jaw movements function normally.

Caring for Your Dental Crown

After receiving your dental crown, you will surely want to maintain it properly so it can last as long as possible. Thankfully, caring for your crown is similar to caring for your regular teeth.

You must brush and floss twice a day, and use mouthwash to remove dental plaque and harmful bacteria. It would also be in your best interest to avoid any hard, crunchy, or sticky foods, or at least take care while eating them so you don't damage your crown. If you grind your teeth at night, ask your dentist about getting a night guard.
