Dental crowns.

A tooth crown is often required to protect and restore a tooth that is seriously damaged, broken or weakened by a large filling. A previously placed filling can threaten the strength of a tooth by acting as a wedge which can cause the tooth to break or fracture.

What is a tooth crown? A crown is a full-coverage restoration that acts as a “cap” that fully encircles a tooth or dental implants to restore the shape, appearance, and strength of a tooth. A tooth crown can be constructed of cast metal materials, such as gold or high-grade porcelain, which is the preferred choice for cosmetic treatments. The crown is sealed or cemented into place using dental cement, giving you a beautiful, new tooth.

Tooth crowns are durable, blend with natural teeth, help prevent further damage and decay, and are an excellent long-term treatment option to restore traumatized and fragile teeth. If you’re ready to restore your smile with a tooth crown, schedule an appointment at our Nanaimo dental clinic today.

All FAQs
Does your clinic offer sedation options?

Yes! We offer two options to make your appointment more comfortable. We can administer oral sedatives one hour prior to your appointment that will make you quite relaxed and calm for your dental treatment. You will be required to have a responsible adult accompany you to and from your appointment if you take oral sedatives. We also administer nitrous oxide known as “laughing gas” for patients who would prefer to leave and go about their day immediately after their appointment with no after-effects.

Can I bring my children to this clinic?

Yes! We see babies and children of all ages. At times it is necessary to refer a child to a specialist for treatment depending on age and/or the treatment needed.

Can I have a one-visit root canal?

Yes! The vast majority of root canals we do involve only a single visit.

Is there convenient parking?

Yes! There is ample parking right outside our door, which is free and convenient.

Dental bridges.

A dental bridge is a wonderful, long-term restoration solution for replacing a single or even multiple teeth.
