Dental crowns are one of the most versatile restorations in modern dentistry, and we offer quality tooth crowns in Etobicoke, ON.

Dental crowns in Etobicoke are tooth-shaped and hollowed out to fit over an existing tooth—always coloured to match your smile. They work in general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, and restorative dentistry! Let’s look at the role of dental crowns under each of these umbrellas.

Dental Crowns in General Dentistry

If you’ve suffered trauma to your tooth or an extensive root infection, your Etobicoke, ON dentist may recommend a dental crown to return the tooth to its former strength and increase bite force following treatment or root canal therapy.

Root canal therapy requires our Etobicoke, ON dentist to clear away the deep infection, close your tooth with antibacterial agents, and temporarily seal the area. Later, your dentist may recommend a tooth crown in Etobicoke, ON.

Dental Crowns in Cosmetic Dentistry

Tooth crowns conceal several cosmetic tooth issues, including:

  • Small chips
  • Small cracks
  • Discoloration
  • Tooth shape issues
  • Small gaps between teeth

A dental crown in Etobicoke, ON also tops a dental implant post as part of your permanent replacement tooth.

Dental Crowns in Restoration Dentistry

Dental crowns often play host to a dental bridge. A dental bridge is a tooth or row of teeth that stand in for missing teeth lost in a single row. Dental crowns exist on both ends of a dental bridge and cap healthy adjacent teeth to keep your restorations locked in place.

Dental crowns in Etobicoke are not only versatile, but they are also durable, and always designed to match your smile.
