There are several types of crowns available in Vancouver Harbour Dental, but the most popular choice is the porcelain crown, also known as a tooth-colored crown. These crowns are highly durable and have a long lifespan. However, like most dental restorations, they may eventually require replacement. Your dentist carefully designs the crown to match the shape, size, and color of your natural tooth, ensuring that you achieve a seamless, natural-looking smile that is both beautiful and functional.
If you’re planning to undergo a dental crown procedure in Downtown Vancouver, you can typically expect it to be completed over two appointments. During your first appointment, your dentist will reshape your tooth and take impressions. These impressions serve as the basis for crafting custom crowns that perfectly fit your tooth in terms of size, shape, and color. The fabrication process usually takes a couple of weeks, so in the meantime, your dentist will place a temporary crown to protect your tooth.
In the second appointment, your dentist will permanently affix the crown to your tooth, restoring not only its original function but also its appearance, ensuring your affected tooth blends seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
