Dental Crowns

Let’s enhance your smile with a permanent fix for your damaged teeth.

Whether you’re dealing with decayed or damaged teeth as a result of facial trauma or poor oral hygiene, our team at LG Dental Centre can recommend a tried-and-true solution that is designed to restore your smile – dental crowns at our Yonge and Lawrence office. Made from highly durable materials, these unique restorations safeguard your vulnerable teeth from future reinfection or damage while strengthening the natural structures. By applying a customized dental crown, you can keep your regular tooth and avoid the possibility of extraction and additional tooth replacement. Call us today to schedule an appointment to find out if you qualify.

What is a Dental Crown?

Known as a prosthetic device, dental crowns, also known as caps, are used in dentistry to restore the function and aesthetics of a tooth that has lost a significant amount of structure. Damaged teeth can tarnish even the most beautiful smile, leaving patients feeling self-conscious. The purpose of a crown is to provide the ability to enhance the appearance of one’s aesthetics. While dentures are devices that can be removed for daily care, dental crowns are permanently cemented onto teeth or implants.

There are several reasons our doctors may present a crown as the right restorative option for you:

Excellent oral hygiene is required before the placement of your dental crown. If you have not been to our office for your regular hygiene visit, we will schedule you in for a visit before the procedure. Our doctors will advise what oral hygiene steps are required prior to commencing treatment.

Upon the completion of the oral hygiene portion of your treatment, a machine will mill your new dental crown, and our doctors will add colour and other characteristics to make the tooth look as natural as possible.

Once the best fit is ensured, our doctors will cement your new crown in place, and your tooth will be fully restored to fit and function. Our doctors will make any necessary adjustments to ensure it not only fits well but that you’re happy with the aesthetics.

How Should I Care for My Temporary Dental Crown?

Because temporary dental crowns are just an interim fix until your permanent crown is ready, we suggest that a few precautions be taken:

Post crown care consists of good oral hygiene to maintain its longevity. Keep your gums and teeth overall healthy to ensure your dental crown lasts you for a lifetime.
