Dental Crowns in Guelph Ontario

If you have teeth that are discoloured, chipped or damaged from neglect or an accidental injury then a crown might be the answer for you. Here at Woodlawn Dental Care in Guelph, cosmetic dentist procedures can be used to recreate the appearance of teeth as they once were. Crowns can be used for both restorative and aesthetic intentions. However, Discoloured teeth may not need a crown depending on the extent of damage. Other methods such as teeth whitening or veneers might be more suitable depending on the circumstances. This is a question for your Guelph family dentist.

 

Usually a crown will be used in cases of damage to the tooth which cannot be fixed by adding to the existing tooth material. A crown would be used if the remaining tooth is too damaged or there is not enough material to support the tooth securely. If there is little tooth remaining, it may be required for the tooth to be built up for adequate support.

 

Crowns envelop the entire surface of the tooth from the gum line. It is essentially a new tooth since it completely covers the one underneath, unlike a filling or dental onlay which would only cover a portion. It would attempt to blend in with the existing tooth in appearance. An impression of the bite pattern is made once the crown is inserted, which ensures that it fits in with your existing teeth. It also detects any unnecessary friction when the two sides of the teeth meet each other when biting. If this occurs, parts of the tooth will be filed down to create a harmonious fit.

 

This procedure usually takes two trips to our family practice in Guelph. Orthodontist Dr. Diodati will fit a temporary crown while the actual crown is made up. Contact us today at our Guelph family practice to request an appointment to see if crowns might be an option for you.
