Dental Crowns Hamilton
Dental Crowns, also referred to as dental caps, can be used for both restorative and cosmetic dental procedures. Crowns can help to improve the visual appearance of discoloured, chipped or traumatized teeth, and can also be used to rebuild teeth that are suffering from decay, breaks, or other problems that have negatively affected the strength in individual teeth.
Dissimilar to composite fillings, dental inlays or dental onlays, which fill-in or cover only a portion of a damaged tooth, a dental crown is a type of dental restoration that covers an entire tooth from the gum line-up. When cemented onto a natural tooth, a crown efficiently strengthens it, greatly increasing its life span, while performing as your tooth’s new protective outer surface.
Crowns can be shaped from a variety of materials such as gold alloy or porcelain / ceramic, or even a combination of both! Our dentists can provide you with additional information regarding our different options, and will provide some guidance regarding which type of material would perform the most effectively for your specific needs.
