What is a dental crown?


Crowns are a type of dental restoration which, when cemented into place, fully covers that portion of a tooth which lies at and above the gum line. In comparison, composite fillings/inlays/onlays are dental restorations that are used to fill in or cover over just a portion of a tooth. Since dental crowns encase the entire visible aspect of a tooth, a dental crown in effect becomes the tooth's new outer surface.


Crowns are used to rebuild broken or decayed teeth, to strengthen teeth, and as a means by which to enhance the cosmetic appearance of teeth. Crowns can be made out of porcelain/ceramic, gold alloy, or a combination of both. Dental crowns are often referred to as "dental caps".


What happens during a dental crown procedure?


At our North York dental practice, we provide exemplary care for our patients and their dental treatments. We’ll always do consultations first before any procedures to ensure the right type of care. There are different types of dental crowns: porcelain, ceramic, metal, composite-resin, and more. Depending on the type of crown you choose, it may take two dental appointments. In these cases, our dentists will do the following: 

  • They’ll file down and remove the outer layer of the tooth. 
  • An impression will be made of the trimmed tooth and sent to a dental lab, where your crown will be made. 
  • Our dentist will place a temporary crown over the tooth, while we wait for the lab to finish creating it. 
  • When the crown comes in, you’ll come in for your second appointment and our dentists will place the final crown on your tooth, make the proper adjustments so it feels and looks like a natural tooth.
