Dental crowns.

A 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 tooth 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 dental crown can be constructed of cast metal materials, such as gold or high-grade porcelain, which is the preferred choice for cosmetic treatments. It is then sealed or cemented into place using dental cement, giving you a beautiful, new tooth.

Dental 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 dental crown, book an appointment at our Nanaimo dental clinic today.

How can cosmetic dentistry help improve the appearance of my smile?

Cosmetic dentistry is a type of dentistry that focuses on improving the appearance of your smile. If your teeth are broken, chipped, stained, worn, discoloured, or misaligned, cosmetic dentistry can give you a better smile. Whether you want teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, or are interested in dental implants, our Nanaimo dentists will work with you to develop a treatment plan that fits your needs.

How often should I go to my dentist for a teeth cleaning?

A dental cleaning aids in the early detection of tooth decay and gum disease and is extremely important to the longevity of your teeth. Your Nanaimo dentist and hygienist can determine how often you should visit the dentist for a teeth cleaning based on your specific needs.

What is sedation dentistry and do you offer it?

Yes! Our Nanaimo Dental Clinic offers two sedation dentistry options to make your appointment more comfortable. Your sedation dentist can administer oral sedatives one hour before your dental appointment, which will make you feel more relaxed and calmer. If you take oral sedatives, you will be required to have a responsible adult accompany you to and from your appointment. We also administer nitrous oxide, known as “laughing gas,” for patients that prefer to go about their day immediately after their appointment with no after-effects.

Can I bring my children to this clinic your Nanaimo Dental Clinic?
