Dental Crowns Stoney Creek

Get A Bright, Healthy Smile With Dental Crowns

A missing tooth can affect your self-esteem, ability to eat, and even your ability to speak. Thankfully, dental crowns, also known as caps, can help you get your smile back.

Welcome To Gateshead Dental

At Gateshead Dental, we have over 30 years of experience working with dental crowns in the Hamilton and Stoney Creek communities. We treat our patients like family and strive to prioritize their comfort and satisfaction above all. Patients can trust us to restore their smiles.

Why Do I Need A Dental Crown?

There are many situations when a dentist might recommend a crown. These include:

  • Protecting a weakened tooth that’s at risk of breaking apart. This can be a cracked tooth, a tooth with a large filling, or a tooth that has undergone a root canal treatment.
  • Covering a tooth that has already been broken or has a lot of surface wear.
  • Keeping a dental bridge in place while holding false teeth (called pontics) in between two crowns at either end of the bridge.
  • Covering a dental implant that replaces missing teeth.
  • Enhancing the tooth cosmetically.

Protect Your Oral Health With A Crown

While dental fillings plug a hole in your tooth, dental crowns are used to completely encase the tooth when it needs reinforcement to withstand biting forces.

Not only can you smile confidently, but you can trust that your teeth are protected against weakness and threats to your oral hygiene like gum disease.

Do you think crowns, bridges, or dental implants may be right for you? Call us today to book an appointment with our dental team.

The Dental Crown Placement Procedure

The dental crown procedure is easy when you come to Gateshead Dental. We will:

  1. Provide local anesthetic
  2. Take an X-ray to identify the problem
  3. Perform any tooth decay treatment or grafts to the surrounding bone if needed
  4. Prepare the tooth for fitting
  5. Take an impression of the tooth to have a new crown customized for the proper fit, bite, and aesthetic
  6. Place a temporary crown until the permanent crown is fabricated
  7. Place the final crown that looks and feels just like your natural teeth

A False Tooth That Looks and Feels Real

Dental bridges, crowns, and implants are prosthetic devices made out of various materials like porcelain and composite resin.

Crowns return damaged teeth to their ideal state while flawlessly blending with the rest of your natural smile. They can improve your dental health and help you smile with confidence.

Dental Bridges

Bridges are similar to dental crowns, but they include solid teeth-like pontics to fill missing tooth spaces. If you’re only missing a couple of teeth and don’t want dentures or implants, a dental bridge may be the best option.
