We often use dental crowns at our offices in Midland and Collingwood, ON to strengthen or restore teeth damaged by decay.
Dental crowns are used to improve the appearance, alignment, or shape of a damaged tooth. These dental devices can also be placed on top of an implant to create a more natural looking tooth-like shape. At Georgian Shores Dental Centre, we may recommend adding a crown to one of your teeth if we need to replace a large filling and there isn’t enough surrounding tooth to support it or to keep a weak tooth from breaking. Additionally, we may use a crown to cover a discoloured tooth, to cover a tooth after a root canal is done, or to restore a broken tooth.
If we decide that you could benefit from having a dental crown placed on one of your teeth, the entire process will generally take two visits to either our Collingwood or Midland, Ontario office. At your first visit, we will prepare your tooth for the crown by taking an impression of it. During your second visit, we will cement the crown onto your tooth.
We encourage you to keep in mind that with proper care, including regular cleanings and examinations, dental crowns can last a lifetime.

As your dental provider, we want to do what’s best for your overall dental health now and in the future.
