Dental Crowns in Winnipeg, MB R2P 2Z3
A dental crown is a reliable restoration used to restore the function of your tooth. Your dentist may recommend dental crowns near you if your teeth have had extensive dental restorations in the past or have recently undergone root canal therapy.
Dental crowns are custom made and can be constructed from a variety of materials including ceramic porcelain, porcelain-fuse-to-metal, full cast metal, and traditional gold dental crowns. Your dentist in Winnipeg will suggest the best type of dental crowns for your needs. This will depend on multiple factors, including aesthetics, the location of the crown, your dental habits, dental conditions like bruxism, and your personal preferences.
Your dentist will perform a complete assessment of your teeth to determine the best type of dental crown for your situation.
