Tooth Crown
Regina SK

Over time, our teeth are exposed to years of wear and tear. Eventually, teeth may crack or chip and require a dental crown. Damaged teeth can be painful and dramatically change the appearance of your smile. Dental crowns can protect your teeth and restore the look of your smile.

A dental crown is a custom-made cap made of gold, metal, or porcelain that completely envelopes your tooth. Most common, porcelain dental crowns, blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth and restore the damaged tooth’s function.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns successfully restore and protect your tooth, helping to complete the look of your smile. Benefits of dental crowns include:

  • Improved appearance of a misshapen tooth
  • Restoration and strengthening of a broken or weak tooth
  • Tooth protection after a root canal
  • Restoration of a tooth with an extensive filling
  • Attachment and anchor of a dental bridge
  • Functional and visual restoration over a dental implant
  • Durability. Dental crowns typically last 10 to 15 years!

Dental Crown Procedure at Signature Smiles in Regina, SK

If your tooth is damaged and requires restoration, our general dental team at Signature Smiles office in Regina, SK, will first assess the tooth to determine if a tooth crown is the best treatment solution.

If you decided to go ahead with a dental crown, you would probably need to attend two appointments. We will prepare your tooth for the new crown and take an impression to ensure a proper fit. We will provide you with a temporary crown until your final crown is complete. Once we receive your custom crown back from the lab, you will return to our office in Regina, SK, and we will permanently bond the dental crown to your tooth.

Frequently Asked

As a cap that fits over your tooth, a dental crown restores the shape and size of the tooth. This can help with both appearance and function. 

In general, the top situations that call for a tooth crown in Regina include:

  • A weak tooth suffering from significant decay. 
  • A broken or severely worn tooth. 
  • To support a tooth with a large filling and minimal remaining structure. 
  • For holding a dental bridge. 
  • To restore discoloured or misshapen teeth. 
  • To cover a dental implant. 
Between tooth preparation and getting your custom dental crown in Regina, you will likely wear a temporary dental crown to protect your tooth. However, a temporary crown is not permanently secured and is less durable than your real crown. Therefore, when caring for your temporary crown, you should avoid very chewy foods, avoid hard foods, and focus on chewing on the other side.
The lifespan of a tooth crown in Regina depends on several factors, including the material, how you care for it, and the wear and tear you experience. Modern porcelain crowns may last up to 15 years with good oral hygiene.
