Dental Crowns Can Protect And Reignite Your Smile

At JM Dental, many of our patients have had dental crowns (or crown & bridge treatment) to restore their beautiful smiles. But many haven’t, and we often get questions about what a crown is and why we would place one. We’re glad to take a moment today to give you a general overview and let you know why this technique is so successful, popular, and in demand.

What is a dental crown?

A crown (or cap) is a fixed prosthetic device which simply means it’s a tooth restoration that you don’t remove – it stays permanently in your mouth to support and strengthen a tooth. It also refines its shape, alignment, color, and function. In days past, most crowns were made of gold, but now, because of their beauty, strength, and natural look, most crowns are made of porcelain. They’re so life-like, only you and your dentist in Etobicoke – us! – know that you’re sporting one.

The most common uses for crowns include:

Dental crowns are extremely durable and function the way your own teeth do. They can be placed on incisors (biting teeth toward the front of your mouth) or molars (grinding teeth at the back of your mouth) and can last a very long time with regular thorough oral hygiene care – brushing at least twice a day, flossing once a day, and seeing your dentist in Etobicoke at least twice a year for your professional cleanings and preventive check-up.

If you think a dental crown would help you eat, speak, and smile with confidence, call us today. As your general dentist, we will talk with you about the benefits, answer your questions, and together, decide which treatment is best for your smile.

Make your smile your crowning glory! Call us today!

Yours in excellent dental health,
Dr. John Maggirias & team, your dentist in Etobicoke
