Fort St. John Dental Clinic offers dental crowns to repair teeth that are badly decayed or fractured.
Restore Your Smile with a Dental Crown
Our Fort St. John dentist uses dental crowns to fix teeth that are too damaged to be repaired by a filling by covering or capping a tooth that is badly damaged, restoring its strength and shape.
How Dental Crowns Work
Dental crowns cover a tooth and restores it to its original shape, size and colour. They improve the strength, function and appearance of a broken tooth that may otherwise be lost.
First, decay is removed and cleaned from the tooth and a highly accurate 3D scan is made of the prepared surface.
This scan is used to create a virtual model of the tooth which is then sent to a machine that creates a porcelain crown. The crown is then cemented onto the prepared surface of the tooth.
A crown can hold a cracked tooth together and prevent the damage from increasing. Crowns can also be used to attach a dental bridge, and to cover badly shaped or discoloured teeth.
Crowns are incredibly strong due to the fact that they are made of strong porcelain. This protects and strengthens the remaining tooth structure.
