Dental Crowns in Peterborough, Ontario

Dental crowns, or dental caps, are used for both restorative and cosmetic dentistry. Crowns can help enhance the visual appearance of discolored, chipped or otherwise traumatized teeth, and can also be used to rebuild teeth that have suffered decay, breaks, or other issues that have caused them to lose strength. Dental crowns can be a great solution to long-term wear on a tooth that has a heavy chewing-load.

Unlike composite fillings, dental inlays, or dental onlays-which fill or cover only a portion of a tooth- a crown is a type of dental restoration intended to cover the entire surface of the tooth. Cemented onto your natural tooth, a crown can effectively become your tooth's new outer surface because it can cover and even replace your natural tooth. They are custom made according to your need and can be made to match your natural shade of white with porcelain.

Dental crowns can be fashioned from a variety of materials including gold alloy, porcelain, ceramic, or even a combination of both! Dr. Louis Diamandakos and his team can provide you with additional information on crowns, including guidance on which type of material would work best for your crown and needs. When you come in for a consultation, we will thoroughly examine your case to determine how to best improve your smile and oral health. We will find the ideal solution to any issue you'd like to fix, making sure you understand and agree with the treatment.

Using these modern materials and the best accepted practices in cosmetic and restorative dentistry, we can provide you with crowns, or any other aesthetic appliance, that will last for a long time with proper care.
