Restoring All-White Smiles for Ottawa Residents
If you’re self-conscious about cracked, broken, decayed, or worn teeth, we can bring back your healthy, natural-looking smile with porcelain crowns. A porcelain crown can return structure, strength, and function to a tooth with extensive decay or damage. Designed to fit snugly and function as a healthy tooth, a crown will protect your tooth from further damage and preserve the jaw’s correct natural alignment.
We use precious metal, porcelain fused to metal, or all-porcelain for crowns. We take time and care in choosing the right type of crown to fit your needs and demands. Over 25 years in practice, we have built a great relationship with our technical laboratories who fabricate these crowns. Porcelain crowns are also extremely durable and long lasting, and these benefits make them popular with dentists as well as patients. Following root canal therapy, a crown should be placed on a tooth to prevent tooth and root fracture.
Typically, we can design, fit, and place your crown in just a couple of short appointments. Once placed, you can care for your restoration as you do your natural teeth. Conscientious brushing twice a day and daily flossing will help prevent from bacterial growth at the base of your crown. Be sure to see us at least two times each year for professional cleanings and a preventive exam, too.
If you have any questions about crowns or if you would like to schedule an appointment, call Smyth Dental Centre. We provide comprehensive care to residents of Ottawa and Gatineau.
