Dental crowns, also known as caps, are natural-looking covers constructed of noble alloys or porcelain. Crowns fit tightly over teeth to cover a tooth that is cracked, injured, chipped, or badly discoloured. This also protects the tooth from further damage.
When a Crown is Used

Consult Alexandra Park Dental in Leduc for an expert opinion about whether dental crowns or bridges could be the right solution for you.
During your first visit, our dentists will prepare your tooth structure and then take an impression of the prepared tooth, make a temporary crown to place on the tooth, and send the impression to a dental laboratory to fabricate the crown. At your next visit, we will try-in the crown to ensure a good fit and then cement the crown in place.
When the procedure is finished, the crown will blend seamlessly with your teeth, return the strength that you need for comfortable oral function, and restore your all-white smile.
