Crowns - Effective restorations in our office in Oakville.

Crowns or dental caps are used for restorative and orthodontic treatments. Crowns can help restore eroded, chipped or otherwise compromised teeth, and they can also be used to restore teeth that have been damaged, broken, or other issues that have compromised their strength.

A crown is a type of dental repair meant to cover the entire tooth from the gum lineup, in contrast to composite fillings, dental inlays, or dental onlays, which only fill or cover a portion of a tooth. A crown that is completely covered by cement is affixed to your natural tooth, functioning as its new surface.

Crowns can be fashioned from a variety of materials including gold alloy, porcelain or ceramic, or even a combination of both! Our dentist can provide you with additional information on your crown options, including guidance on which type of material would work best for your crown.
