Prevent Tooth Loss & Protect Your Smile 3 Reasons to Promptly Seek Treatment

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped porcelain cap that covers a compromised tooth while creating a natural appearance. If you have a compromised tooth, there are many reasons to reach out to our dentists as soon as possible to find out if a crown or another solution is the best way to solve the issue:

Eliminate Painful Symptoms

A damaged, decayed, or infected tooth can be very painful, and the symptoms will just get worse over time. Our dentist will treat the problem to alleviate dental discomfort, and cap the tooth with a crown once the issue has been resolved.

Save Your Natural Teeth

If left untreated, an infection can spread and cause you to lose your teeth. Saving your natural tooth is always preferable to getting a dental prosthetic. A crown can protect the remaining natural tissue if your tooth has been compromised.

Enhance the Appearance of Your Smile

While crowns serve important practical purposes, they can also improve the aesthetics of your smile. Dental crowns can cover cracks, intrinsic discoloration, and other severe cosmetic issues that less extensive treatments often cannot. 

What happens if I'm missing teeth or need a tooth extraction?

We Can Fill in the Gaps With Dental Implants

If you are missing a tooth or require extraction, implant dentistry may be the perfect solution for you. Implants are an innovative form of restorative dentistry designed to replace missing tooth roots and support replacement teeth. A titanium implant is placed into the jawbone, where it provides the stimulation necessary to stop the bone atrophy that follows tooth loss. Your dentist will then design a custom porcelain crown to top your implant, replacing the entire lost tooth from the root to the chewing surface. If you are missing more teeth, you can receive a custom implant-supported bridge or denture.

Take a Closer Look at the Procedure 

Once issues such as decay or infection have been resolved, the tooth will be reshaped to accommodate a crown. Once the crown is in place, it will support and protect the remaining natural tissue.

Dental Exam

Meet one of our dentists for a consultation at our Vancouver office. They will examine your teeth and diagnose your dental condition. If a dental crown is needed, we will discuss your treatment options and schedule the procedure. 

Preparing the Tooth

Your dentist will remove the damaged or decayed material from the compromised tooth. They will then slightly reshape it to better accommodate your porcelain restoration.

Temporary Crown

It will take about two weeks for a dental lab to create your permanent dental crown. In the meantime, your tooth will require a temporary crown to keep it protected. We'll take the necessary steps to ensure your temporary crown has the proper look and fit for your smile.

Final Restoration

Once we have received your permanent dental crown from the lab, return to our office in Vancouver, BC, so we can remove your temporary crown and replace it with your permanent porcelain restoration. Your dentist will first check the fit and make any necessary adjustments. Once you are satisfied with how the dental crown looks and feels, we will bond it to the tooth with special dental cement. 

How Much Do Dental Crowns Cost?

Our dental crown treatment is completely customized to each individual and will vary in price, depending on the size of the restoration, the materials used, and other factors. After we examine your teeth in person, we can give you a personalized cost estimate. If your dental crown is needed for health reasons, it is considered restorative dentistry and will typically be covered at least partially by insurance. Norris Dental accepts most major dental insurance plans and will work directly with your provider to get you the maximum coverage.
