Dental Crowns - Dundas

If you have cracked, worn down, crooked, chipped or decayed teeth, crowns offer a lot of benefits. Dundas Dentistry in Dundas and Hamilton, Ontario provides dental crowns, which are tooth-shaped “dental caps”, used to protect severely worn out, broken or damaged teeth. They are also used to allow our dentists to perform and finalize certain dental treatments such as root canal therapy or dental implant procedures. Crowns encase the entire portion of your damaged tooth, thus transforming the tooth’s outer surface into a strong new tooth.

 

Dental Crowns Hamilton, Ontario

 

Crown and bridgework is a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases or wear and tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. Material used in these repairs is either high-grade porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold. A higher strength of the porcelain and gold materials is recommended to treat the most serious of dental problems. Where accidental damage has occurred, resulting in lost teeth, or where teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or as the result of old fillings breaking, dental crowns and/or dental bridges can be used as a long-term solution.

Should you already have a dental crown, it is imperative to remember to brush at least twice a day and floss to strengthen gums and remove potential materials that could cause plaque to form in the space between teeth causing decay or gum disease.
