These crowns are made to match the colour of your teeth to seamlessly blend into your smile. Not only do crowns look natural, but they can also enhance the appearance of your smile. Our practice is happy to offer dental crowns in SW Calgary to restore your smile. Contact us to schedule a consultation with our dentist in SW Calgary today.
Dental Crowns in SW Calgary

When Are Dental Crowns Required?

Dental crowns are often recommended to restore teeth that have been:
  • Discoloured
  • Worn or cracked
  • Misshapen
Additionally, our dentist in SW Calgary may recommend a dental crown after a dental procedure, such as a root canal. The crown will protect your tooth while providing it with extra strength. It is important to remember that dental crowns are often recommended when no other procedure is a viable solution, as your tooth will be permanently altered before placing the crown.

The Process of Receiving Dental Crowns

Are you looking to receive dental crowns near you? If so, you will schedule a consultation with our dentist to determine if this is the right solution for your concerns. Afterward, we will shape your tooth and take a mould to create your custom-made crown. This mould is then sent to a lab for fabrication and can take up to a few weeks to create. We will schedule you a second appointment to come back and have your new crown permanently placed.

How to Maintain Your Dental Crown

Typically dental crowns can last for many years with the proper care. It is important to maintain good oral care habits like your natural teeth. Brushing twice a day, flossing, and taking time to clean around your crown will prolong its lifespan. In addition, some foods that are hard and sticky can increase your risk of damaging or breaking your crown. It is recommended to avoid these foods. Lastly, regular visits to your dentist will ensure your crown and teeth are in good shape.
