a full range of crown options
Crowns are used to restore teeth that have been badly broken down. They form the “tooth” portion of a dental implant. They can also be used to replace teeth that are substantially worn or discolored. A variety of materials are used to create crowns, and each has its advantages. At Oakville Dental Care, we offer our patients four options:
One-visit porcelain crowns: Using the innovative E4D system, we can measure, fabricate, and fit a permanent, all-ceramic crown in just one visit. This technology eliminates the need to wear a temporary crown, or to schedule a second visit to have your crown placed.
All ceramic crowns: We use both the Lava™ and e.max® systems, which employ modern metal-free, tooth-colored materials to produce crowns that are highly durable and blend beautifully with natural teeth.
Porcelain fused to metal: Another time-tested material, these crowns are strong and wear-resistant, with a pleasing, natural look.
Gold crowns: For centuries, “gold teeth” have been synonymous with crown restorations. Many prefer gold crowns because they are long lasting and highly resistant to breakage and wear.
If you need a crown, we’ll discuss your options and tell you which type is ideal for you. During your procedure, you may ask for nitrous oxide sedation, which we offer free of charge to our patients.
