Ways Dental Crowns Improve Your Oral Health

At Kingsway Dental Centre, we strive to preserve the integrity of your smile by taking exceptional care of your natural teeth – the best way to protect your oral health.

Because teeth have a tough job – chewing and grinding the food we eat, and are subject to wear and tear such as clenching and grinding, they do sometimes sustain damage. One of the best ways to restore the health of a damaged tooth is with a dental crown.

Dental crowns completely cover your tooth above your gum line, making them stronger and more stable. We custom create dental crowns for our patients at our Edmonton, AB dental office so that you can enjoy the health benefits of a comfortable and healthy smile.

The Dental Crown Process

We begin by prepping your tooth and removing any damage or decay. Next, we take an impression, match your tooth shade, and send your case off to our dental lab to custom design a dental crown that matches the color, size, shape, and bite of your other teeth. In the meantime, we will place a temporary dental crown on your tooth to protect it until your permanent dental crown comes back from the lab.

Dental crowns are usually made of porcelain, metal, or porcelain and metal combinations depending on your needs and goals for your smile.

By choosing a dental crown, you can prolong the life of your tooth by years – even decades – with the proper care.

Saving your natural teeth can prevent a number of oral health problems such as gaps in your smile, shifting teeth, additional tooth loss, and negative effects on your bite. Replacing missing teeth is often more expensive than protecting the ones you have!

What Happens to My Teeth During a Dental Cleaning?

When you come in for a dental cleaning in our Edmonton, AB dental office, you may wonder about the process of dental cleanings. At Kingsway Dental Centre, we begin by determining the type of dental cleaning you need. Not everyone has the same oral health and we tailor our dental cleanings to meet your needs.

The Prophy – Our Standard Dental Cleaning

A prophy is a dental cleaning designed for patients in generally good oral health. If you have healthy gums and stay on top of your home care, our hygienists will recommend this type of dental cleaning.

Even if you are diligent at brushing and flossing your teeth, you cannot remove all of the tartar from between your teeth and near your gum line. This is why professional dental cleanings are so important! Our hygienists use precision instruments to remove tartar that has collected to keep it from irritating your gums and causing gum disease.

Next, our hygienist will polish your teeth with a special paste designed to remove residual particles of tartar and surface stains.

When You Have Some Catching Up to Do

Maybe you have missed an appointment or two and you have to catch up on your dental care. We can help you get back on track! Dental cleanings at our Edmonton, AB dental office are a positive experience and our hygienists are always gentle. We will provide you with a deeper cleaning to remove tartar from above and below your gum line and provide you with a recare schedule that makes staying on track with your oral health easy!

Call our Edmonton AB Office for Periodontal Maintenance Cleanings

If you have had periodontal disease in the past, you may need more frequent dental cleanings to keep the infection at bay. Sometimes we recommend that patients visit our Edmonton, AB dental office 3-4 times per year for cleanings to treat periodontal disease.

Our overall goal is to keep your teeth and gums healthy and beautiful!
