Dental Crowns Mississauga
Dental crowns can restore both the function and beauty of damaged teeth. A crown, also called a cap, is a hollow, artificial tooth used to cover a damaged or decayed tooth. At Credit River Dental Centre, we provide custom-fit porcelain crowns.
Some of the reasons you might need a tooth crown include:
- Large damaged filling
- Extensive dental decay
- Cracked or broken tooth
- Discoloured tooth
- Tooth with poor size or shape
A crown will improve the appearance of your damaged tooth but more importantly, a crown will restore the natural function of your tooth. Your crown will allow you to bite down, chew, and speak naturally. In some cases teeth require a large filling, but there isn’t enough tooth remaining to keep the filling in place. A crown can strengthen the tooth and hold the filling protecting the tooth from further damage.
Crowns are made from various types of materials and depending on which tooth needs a crown, Dr. Lee will suggest a material, or combination of materials, that is right for you.
