Crowns

At Totally Smiles, we care about maximum quality and offer the latest in dental crowns to give you a smile that is like new again.

What is a dental crown?

A full coverage dental crown is one way of restoring a badly damaged tooth by protecting the entire structure of the tooth.

Our dental crowns look and feel like natural teeth. They are durable and strong and designed to last you for many years.

Why would I need a dental crown?

Sometimes a tooth can be damaged to the extent that its strength is compromised, such as when there is a large filling in the tooth. This can cause deflection and stresses on the remaining tooth structure as the filling expands and contracts due to biting forces.

If you have had a root canal treatment, this may lead to drying of the tooth because the nerve is removed. This causes the tooth to lose strength and become more brittle.

Another reason that your dentist may recommend a crown is when a tooth is fractured or cracked and you need a crown to hold it together and prevent further tooth loss.

A crown may also be your best option if you are unable to achieve the look you desire with other methods.

Types of dental crowns

Dental crowns can be made of ceramic/porcelain, resin, gold, base metal alloys, and other materials. In some cases, a temporary crown is needed while waiting for the permanent crown. Computer-generated crowns are now also possible using CEREC technology, allowing you to have your crown in one visit.

We are proud of our dentists who are ethical and honest. You can rely on us to provide you with clear explanations about your options so that you can make informed decisions that are right for you and your oral health.
