Dental Crowns in SE Calgary

At Progressive Dental in South East (SE) Calgary, our team offers dental crowns for those who may be suffering from tooth pain. 


What are dental crowns?

Dental crowns are commonly known as “caps”. Crowns cover the entire surface of the tooth.

Dental crowns are used when previous fillings have broken, fractured or chipped surfaces, or when a patient experiences tooth sensitivity.

Crowns are also used to improve the appearance of natural teeth that are malformed, malpositioned or discoloured.

Dental crowns can be made from various materials, which include porcelain, Zirconia-based porcelain, porcelain fused-to-metal, and full cast metal.

Based on numerous factors including aesthetics, position within the mouth, habits such as grinding, and your personal preference, a full assessment is required to determine which material is appropriate for you.

Some indications for requiring a dental crown are:

  1. A previously filled tooth where there now exists more filling than tooth. The existing tooth structure becomes weakened and can no longer support the filling.
  2. Extensive damage by decay or breakage.
  3. Discolourations and compromised aesthetics.
  4. Fractures.
  5. Root canal – After root canal therapy, teeth may become brittle and may become more apt to fracture. These teeth may need to be protected and strengthened by a crown.
  6. Bridges – When missing teeth are replaced with a bridge, the adjacent teeth may require crowns in order to support the replacement teeth. Crowns may strengthen and protect the remaining tooth structure, and may improve the appearance of your teeth.
