Dental Crowns in Oakville


oakville dental crowns Thanks to modern cosmetic dentistry, people are keeping their teeth longer, often for their whole lives. Over the years the restorations (fillings) on teeth will be replaced  due to wear, fracture, recurring decay or endodontics (root canal) treatment. For whatever reason they are replaced, the "fillings" become larger so the teeth and their "fillings" become more brittle, or may even fracture.  I often recommend crowns as the restoration of choice to protect these teeth from fracture and help keep them functioning longer than they might with just a "filling". 

At our Oakville family and cosmetic dental office, dental bonding cannot protect heavily filled teeth from fracture and the heavy wear that occurs with large fillings, they just cannot stand up to the wear and tear of chewing when they get very large. Thankfully, we crowns are an excellent alternative when bonding is insufficient. Oakville Dental Office in is the Oakville dentist that cosmetic dentistry would be childrens dentist and orthodontics

Our Oakville dentist recommends dental crowns be used to change the appearance of a tooth (or teeth if many are treated). Colour, shape, size and position can be changed to give the desired appearance. Crowns can be fabricated from various materials, depending on the need for strength and/or esthetics and the patient's desires. Gold, porcelain bonded to gold, or all ceramic (porcelain) crowns are all quite common. All porcelain crowns are becoming very popular today, thanks to their natural appearance and feel.
