Dental Crowns 

As part of our comprehensive range of cosmetic and restorative dentistry services, Stittsville Braces offers Dental Crowns to our patients in Stittsville and surrounding Ottawa communities. Dental crowns are custom-made dental prostheses designed to replace missing teeth and restore damaged teeth. We work with master ceramists to ensure our crowns not only fit well, but look completely natural. If you are suffering with a missing tooth, or a tooth that has been damaged by trauma or decay, crowns can restore your smile. Learn more by scheduling an appointment with us today.

Crowns Restore Damaged Teeth 

By fully encapsulating a tooth, crowns are able to: 

  • Restore a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy
  • Protect a tooth that has had a large portion removed because of decay
  • Strengthen a fractured or cracked tooth
Patients in need of a crown typically require two appointments. During the first, your tooth will be prepared to accommodate the crown, and a temporary restoration will be placed. We will take an impression of the prepared tooth, which will guide the technicians creating your crown. Roughly two weeks later, once your final restoration has completed and delivered to our office, we can place the crown during a second appointment. After a crown has been placed, patients can once again chew, eat, and speak with confidence.

Other Restorative Applications

Dental crowns can be used to support dental bridges. Bridges are partial dentures designed to replace missing teeth, and can connect to a pair of adjacent crowns. Dental crowns can also be used to restore Dental Implants. Dental implants are titanium or zirconia posts surgically implanted in the jaw bone to replace missing tooth roots. A dental crown attaches to the implant, providing a full restoration. Implants provide a level of support that allows you to use your restorations to chew and speak with the same level of confidence you experienced with your natural teeth.

Cosmetic Applications

Traditionally, dental crowns can be made of metal, porcelain fused to metal, or all porcelain. Our practice prefers all-porcelain crowns for their aesthetic appeal.

Like porcelain veneers, crowns may be used for cosmetic applications, If you are wondering what the benefits of porcelain crowns vs. veneers are, each restoration has its particular benefits. Possible uses include:

  • Concealing stubborn intrinsic discoloration, which is resistant to bleaching
  • Restoring teeth that are smaller than surrounding teeth
  • Concealing misshapen teeth with a more attractive restoration
