Severely broken down teeth can be restored to normal function by reshaping and crowning (capping). Dental crowns are often used to repair visibly damaged, decayed teeth or in situations where a root canal or implant is necessary. Traditionally, the creation of a new crown involves a minimum of 2 appointments as the dental cap is constructed at an outside lab.
Bragg Creek Dental uses on-site CEREC® dental technology to ensure that you receive your new crown (or onlay, depending on the situation) right away during your first visit.

What Is a Crown?
A crown is a cap that is placed over a damaged tooth. It can enhance the teeth's look, shape and alignment. On top of an implant, a crown provides a tooth-like form and structure for function. A crown can be made of a variety of materials, including porcelain or ceramic. They may be colour-matched to your teeth and appear perfectly natural.
A crown may be suggested for the following procedures:
Replace a large filling when there is insufficient natural tooth left
Prevent the fracture of a weak tooth
Repair a cracked tooth or bridge
Dental implant coverage
Cover a root canal therapy tooth
