ACHIEVE A BRIGHT, HEALTHY SMILE WITH DENTAL CROWNS
Dental crowns, also known as caps, cover a tooth that is broken, worn, or decayed. They help strengthen the tooth and are also aesthetically pleasing, made to match the shade of your natural teeth. Gateshead is pleased to be able to offer our patients same-day crowns.
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.
There are many situations when a dentist might recommend a crown. These include:
While dental fillings fill a tooth after decay , 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 procedure is easy when you come to Gateshead Dental. We will:
Provide local anesthetic
Take an X-ray to identify the problem
Perform any tooth decay treatment or grafts to the surrounding bone if needed
Take an impression of the tooth to have a new crown customized for the proper fit, bite, and aesthetic
Place a temporary crown until the permanent crown is fabricated
Place the final crown that looks and feels just like your natural teeth
Dental bridges, crowns, and implants are prosthetic devices made out of various materials like porcelain, meta, zirconia 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.
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.
