Dental Crown Treatment Ajax

Restore the Strength of Your Tooth

Porcelain Dental Crowns

Dental crowns cover the full surface of your treated tooth. The treatment matches your existing tooth color and restores it to a natural shape and size.

Your dental crown provides protection for your tooth. Because it covers more of your tooth’s surface than a dental filling, it increases the strength of your treated tooth.

Dental crowns are a durable tooth restoration. Your damaged, broken, fractured, or decayed teeth can be repaired with crown treatment.

Crowns can also replace your larger dental fillings when they become fractured. They are also an effective solution for covering your tooth following root canal treatment.

Dr. Shields uses a variety of materials for crowns including porcelain, zirconia, and porcelain fused to zirconia. While porcelain dental crowns are popular because the most closely match the shade of your natural teeth, all of the metal-free crown materials we use provide a very natural result. At your treatment planning appointment, Dr. Shields will discuss which option is best for your needs.

Your dental crown is made using an iTero laser scanner. This technology produces a virtual 3D model of your teeth and gums and allows us to digitally design your crown for the best possible accuracy and fit, without using messy dental impression materials.

Contact your dentist in Ajax, Dr. Shields, about restoring your tooth with a dental crown.
