Dental Crowns in Vancouver

Parkview Dental in Vancouver provides various restorative dentistry services to patients including dental crowns.

What are dental crowns?

Dental crowns are a type of dental restoration which, when cemented into place, fully cover the portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line. In comparison, fillings are dental restorations that fill in or cover over just a portion of a tooth. Since dental crowns encase the entire visible aspect of a tooth, a dental crown in effect becomes the tooth’s new outer surface.

Dental crowns can be made out of porcelain (dental ceramic), metal (a gold or other metal alloy), or a combination of both.

Why do teeth need dental crowns?

Dental crowns are recommended for a variety of reasons but, in general, most of these reasons will usually fall within one of the following categories:

  • To restore a tooth to its original shape.
  • To strengthen a tooth.
  • To improve the cosmetic appearance of a tooth.
