Dental crowns, also known as "caps," are custom-fitted restorations designed to return strength and beauty to teeth that have become severely damaged. Made of durable and natural looking materials, including porcelain, dental crowns at our Toronto practice serving Danforth, Riverdale, and other areas, improve the functional stability of teeth and help prevent future injury.
When placing porcelain dental crowns at our Toronto practice, our staff first reduces the size of the damaged tooth to accommodate the new restoration, which must fit securely over the natural tooth. A mold is then made of the patient's teeth, which is sent to a lab where a technician creates the crown according to exact specifications. This process usually takes a couple of weeks to complete. During this time, the patient wears a temporary restoration created during their original appointment.
Due to the customized nature of the fabrication process, the "capped" tooth is virtually indistinguishable from the surrounding teeth. With proper care, a dental crown can last a long time.
