Our Winnipeg dentists often fix any significant tooth damage by using dental crowns (caps), which cover the entire surface of the tooth.
Dental crowns (or dental caps) are hollow, artificial teeth that a dentist will place over an entire damaged or decayed tooth to restore its function and protect it from deteriorating any further.
Dental crowns cover damaged teeth and protect them from any future issues. They are often used in dental procedures to cover a tooth after a root canal or to attach a dental bridge.
If you need a filling replaced but your natural tooth is too small, your dentists may crown it. Your dentist may also use a crown to cover a crooked or discoloured tooth to improve your aesthetic.
Made from a variety of strong materials such as porcelain or metal, crowns look and work like natural teeth. If you take proper care of them, they can generally last 10 years or more.
