Dentist doing dental crown treatment to their patients at St catharines

A dental crown is attached to the tooth after a bit of the enamel is removed. If your teeth are damaged or have cosmetic issues that need to be corrected, crowns from Monarch Dentistry professionals in Ontario may be recommended.

Why Do I Need a Crown?

Your dentist may recommend a dental crown for your teeth to accomplish any of the following:

  • Replace old or damaged fillings
  • Protect teeth from breaks and fractures
  • Attach partials and bridges onto teeth
  • Restore the beauty and function of teeth
  • Cover dental implants when they have been installed
  • Hide any discoloration in teeth
  • Protect teeth after a root canal has been performed

How Does A Crown Work?

A crown is usually installed in two visits to your dental professional. During the first appointment, your dentist will examine the tooth to determine the severity of your dental issues and whether or not a crown can be supported. If a crown can be applied, the tooth will be shaven down so that the crown can fit onto it securely.

Once the tooth has been filed, an impression of your teeth will be used to create the crown, and your dentist may provide you with a temporary crown. The temporary crown protects the tooth and prepares you for the feel of your new crown. Once the crown is completed, it will be applied at your second appointment.

The temporary crown will be removed, and the permanent crown will be fitted to make sure that it fits into the mouth and onto the tooth correctly. If the tooth needs any adjustments, your dentist will make these corrections and then bond the crown to your tooth. Bonding it to the tooth keeps it from slipping out of place of falling off of the tooth. Your crown will feel odd at first, but soon it will feel just like one of your natural teeth.
