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