Trust Lakeside Family Dental for Dental Crown Procedure and Repair in Burlington
Why Consider a Dental Crown or Bridge?
We understand that having a happy and functional smile has a significant impact on your everyday life — how you interact with others, the foods you eat and your overall well-being. If you’ve been feeling self-conscious of the colour or shape of your teeth, having trouble eating the foods you like, or have chipped, cracked, or broken teeth, a dental crown or bridge may be a great option.
The dentists at Lakeside Family Dental will help guide you to the best solution for a smile you’re happy with!
What Is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a cap that completely surrounds a tooth. Dental crown materials include ceramic, porcelain, metal, and resin. They are custom made to your unique needs.
A dentist may recommend a dental crown if:
- a tooth has had a root canal, as root canal treated teeth become more brittle and are prone to breaking
- a tooth has a very large filling or is cracked, as crowns help provide added strength and support
What Is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is used to replace a missing tooth, or sometimes multiple teeth. Multiple dental crowns are connected — dental crowns are placed on the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth space, and they are linked to an artificial tooth that fills the space.
Dental Crowns Made Onsite at Lakeside Family Dental
Lakeside Family Dental is equipped with technology to make your dental crowns onsite. The onsite process results in precision made crowns with a faster turn-around time than typical lab made dental crowns, making the process more convenient for you, without compromising on quality. The dentist will expertly guide you to whether or not a crown made onsite is the best option for you.
How Much Does a Dental Crown or Bridge Cost?
Dental crowns and bridges are a great investment to help prevent further issues and more costly treatment in the long run. The price of dental crowns and bridges will vary depending on the material used, the number of crowns needed, and other potential factors.
Our team will work with you to find the best solution to meet your goals, needs and budget.
What Happens During a Dental Crown Procedure?
Here’s what to expect:
- First Visit
We prepare for the procedure by cleaning and examining your teeth. The dentist will remove the damaged parts to prevent any further decay after crown placement.The next step is shaping the replacement tooth — your "crown." Using dental impression material or a 3D scanner, we will make a mould of your teeth, which will be used to make your dental crown. A temporary crown will be placed for you until the permanent crown is ready.
- Second Visit
The dentist will remove the temporary crown and install the permanent crown using dental cement or a hidden screw. It is then polished and we make the necessary adjustments so it fits comfortably in your mouth.
Combining 55 years of dental experience, Dr. Cohen, Dr. DeCesare, and the entire Lakeside Family Dental team is here to ensure a convenient, high-quality process from start to finish. Your smile makes us smile!
