Dental Crowns

In the dental world, a crown is a cap that covers the visible part of a tooth. When the outer tooth enamel chips, breaks, or fractures, crown restorations prevent further damage. If you have experienced dental trauma and don’t like the appearance of one or more teeth, call the dentist near you at Great North Dental today.  Please find out more about dental crowns and all of our restorative options.

Tooth Crowns Near Me

Dental crowns near you are made of various materials such as tooth-colored porcelain or composite resin, ceramics, metal, or gold. Each type is custom-fitted over an impaired tooth. The goal is to restore the natural look, shape, and function.

In most cases, Dr. Ruchi Sheth places a crown to protect a weakened tooth after root canal treatment. Crowns also serve as replacement teeth over implants.

Modern crowns are custom-made to blend seamlessly with your existing teeth. To determine the best solution for you, your dentist in Sault Ste. Marie, ON, will consider the following factors:

  • Amount of the tooth structure that shows when you smile
  • Colors of the surrounding teeth
  • Condition of the gum tissue and position of the gum line
  • Function and location of the impaired tooth
  • Signs of teeth grinding or clenching
