September 15, 2017

Here at Metro Dental, we get a lot of frequently asked questions about our esthetic dental crowns. So, in today’s blog we’re giving you the answers. Hopefully, by the time you finish reading today’s post, you’ll know everything you’ve ever wondered about esthetic crowns etobicoke.

What are esthetic dental crowns?

To best answer this question, you need to first understand the basic anatomy of a tooth, which is divided into two main parts–the root and the crown. In a healthy mouth, the root is covered by the gums and bone while the crown is the visible part of the tooth. Dental crowns are designed to restore the appearance and functionality of a tooth that has been injured or damaged. Esthetic crowns are designed to look like real teeth in order to restore the appearance of the damaged tooth and confidence of the person.

Why would I need an esthetic crown?

There are several instances in which we would recommend a crown to restore your tooth, including cases in which the tooth is too weak or damaged to be rescued with a filling. Dental crowns are also used as part of dental bridge or implant procedures, or for cosmetic purposes to cover unattractive or discolored teeth.

How do I know if I need a crown?

When you come to your appointment here at Metro Dental Etobicoke, we will examine your tooth and take an x-ray to correctly determine the right procedure to restore your tooth. If we feel that an esthetic crown is your best option, we will share everything you need to know about the procedure, as well as why we feel it’s your best choice.

How long will my esthetic crown last?

Typically, dental crowns last on average between 10 and 20 years. However, esthetic crowns are still at risk for developing cavities or fractures, which is why it is important that you take great care while brushing and flossing. Sometimes, a mouth guard may be recommended to wear at night and during physical activity to provide extra protection from damage.

West Metro Dental was as pleasant an experience as a Dental visit can be. The office was clean and in a very accessible location. My one complaint is that I requested my x-rays be sent to an oral surgeon and they haven't responded to my request yet. Other than that the office has friendly professionals and is a good atmosphere!

Been a patient for 5 years. Dr Walia and his staff are incredible. Everyone greets me by name. Never wait more than 20 minutes for an appointment. The true definition of superior customer service and this is from a guy who worked in the customer service industry for many years. I've moved 3 times since being a patient and continue to go to west metro despite there being dentists closer to where I live. I always feel welcome.
