Dental Crowns in Calgary, AB

If you’ve been told that you need a crown to restore your oral health, there’s no need to worry. A crown is simply a tooth-shaped cap, hence, the term “crown”, that your dentist will place over a tooth to restore its shape and strength while also improving its appearance.

Dental crowns are needed in for several reasons. They can protect a weak or cracked tooth from breaking. They can restore an already broken tooth. They can be used to hold a dental bridge in place. They can cover a misshapen or discolored tooth. And they can be used to cover a dental implant or to make other cosmetic enhancements.

Think you could benefit from dental crowns in Calgary, AB? If so, give us a call to schedule a consultation.

Crowns can also be used on children for reasons ranging from saving a tooth that has been severely damaged by decay or protecting the teeth of a child who is at high risk for tooth decay.

Crowns last on average between five to 15 years, but it all depends on the wear and tear that it is exposed to as well as how well you follow good oral hygiene practices. Other factors that affect a crown’s lifespan include teeth grinding, chewing ice, biting fingernails, and using your teeth to open packaging.

Although a crowned tooth does not require special care beyond that already mentioned, it’s important to remember that just because a tooth is crowned doesn’t mean it’s immune from problems such as decay and gum disease. That’s why it’s so important to follow the good oral hygiene practices we recommend at Comfort Care Dental in Calgary, AB, which includes brushing your teeth at least twice a day, flossing daily, and rinsing with an antibacterial mouthwash.

Some patients may experience discomfort or sensitivity in a new crown immediately after the procedure and as the anesthesia wears off, but this typically goes away on its own. Also, if the tooth that was treated still has a nerve in it, you may experience some sensitivity with respect to heat and cold.

Also, sometimes the cement that’s used to set the crown can wash out from beneath it which can cause the crown to become loose. If this happens, it’s important that you call your dentist immediately since this looseness allows bacteria to enter and can cause decay to the remaining tooth.

If you’re experiencing a loose crown, you can make an appointment today with Comfort Care Dental to make sure it’s handled before it becomes a further problem. We have years of experience at dealing with dental crowns in SW Calgary.
