At Pathways Dental Clinic, our dental team is pleased to offer NE Calgary Dental Crowns (also known as a cap) to restore the function of your teeth, while ensuring the natural aesthetics are maintained.

What is a Dental Crown?

Crowns are restorations that fully cover teeth that are compromised, damaged, or at risk for failing. Crowns act as a “helmet” that goes over the tooth, and unlike fillings, they address biting force down the center to prevent the fracturing of teeth. When a tooth’s longevity is not increased by placing a new filling on it, it is time to consider a crown. This will depend on many factors such as remaining tooth structure, a patient’s bite force, and the patient’s aesthetic needs.

NE Calgary Dental Crowns are recommended when:

Your teeth have undergone Root Canal treatment NE Calgary. After root canal treatment, teeth become brittle and are more susceptible to fracture. As such, the tooth must be protected with a dental crown to prevent breakage down the road.
