Dental Crowns are a permanent restoration that we use to restore teeth that have large, old restorations, teeth with excessive dental decay, or teeth that have undergone the root canal procedure. At Lippitt Dental, our Dental Team is pleased to offer NW Calgary Dental Crowns to restore the function of your teeth while ensuring the natural aesthetics of your teeth are maintained.
There are times when a traditional white filling is not the best option for restoring your teeth. Dental Crowns are recommended when fillings exceed the natural tooth structure. In addition to large fillings, teeth that have undergone root canal procedure along with teeth that suffer from reoccurring tooth decay benefit from Dental Crowns.
Dental Crowns are recommended when:
Your first appointment for your dental crowns will involve the precise shaping of your tooth to fit your new crown. We take a detailed impression of the teeth that is then sent to our dental laboratory, where your custom crown is created by our professional lab technician. Before sending your crown, we will select the color of your new crown, in-office. For teeth that fall within your smile line, we may coordinate a time for you to visit our lab for a precise color-match.
Our Dental Crowns are custom made using a variety of materials. We use ceramic porcelain; Zirconia based porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, full cast metal, and traditional gold dental crowns. The ideal type of crown for your situation is based on a number of factors such as aesthetics, where the crown is placed in your mouth, your dental habits, oral conditions such as teeth grinding, and, of course, your, personal preference. A complete diagnostic assessment will determine the best type of dental crown for your situation.
After the teeth are prepared, we obtain an impression of the affected area which is sent to our off-site dental lab for processing.
We also offer extended hours on Tuesday & Wednesdays for your family’s convenience.
