In-House Dental Crowns In Toronto
Dental crowns are bonded to a tooth in order to help restore oral health and improve the appearance of your smile. At North Shores Dental, our general dentists Drs. Reyes, Corrigan, Pham and Pahota often recommend a dental crown to patients whose teeth don’t have enough healthy enamel to support a filling, or to top off a dental implant.

What Is A Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” made of porcelain, that is placed over a tooth to help restore its shape, strength and size. A dental crown can be the right choice to recreate the appearance and function of a tooth damaged by decay or trauma.
After preparing your tooth, the crown is placed over the external portion of the tooth down to the gums in order to help preserve the appearance of your smile. It is possible that the reshaping process may encompass slight removal of healthy tooth structure surrounding your large cavity, but our dentists make every effort to preserve as much of your tooth as possible. Our Toronto dental team may recommend a crown to:
- Cover a dental implant
- Restore a broken or worn tooth
- Protect a tooth, weakened from decay, from breaking
- Hold a dental bridge in place
- Cover a misshapen or discolored tooth
- Support a tooth with a large filling
- Reinforce a tooth treated using root canal therapy
Is A Dental Crown The Right Choice For Me?
Most people are ideal candidates for a crown. This dental procedure can improve the appearance of a damaged tooth while also restoring the tooth’s natural function. After a dental crown is placed, most patients are able able to enjoy chewing without pain and are able to smile with confidence.
How Long Will A Crown Last?
Studies show that most dental crowns last between 5 and 15 years. It depends on the wear and tear the individual patient exposes the dental crown to, and if the patient takes care of the crown with regular brushing and flossing. A crown should be treated just like your natural teeth, so regular cleanings and checkups at North Shores Dental are important! Other patient risk factors include teeth grinding or clenching, bite force, the frequency of cavities, and the presence of gum disease. If your crown is not fitting as well as it used to, or if you are experiencing any pain, call our office for a bite adjustment.
