      Beautiful Crowns and Bridges

      What is a Dental Crown?

      A dental crown, sometimes called a "tooth crown" or "tooth cap," is a personalized covering designed to encase and safeguard a damaged tooth. Imagine a small protective cap used during sewing to guard your finger – that’s similar to the role of a dental crown for your teeth.

      They're typically used when a tooth is fractured, decayed, or severely impaired, and a basic filling isn’t adequate.

      Varieties of Dental Crowns

      Your unique requirements and preferences will determine the selection from four primary kinds of dental crowns:

      Metal Crowns

      Crafted from gold or alternative sturdy metals, these crowns are robust and can handle the forces of biting and chewing efficiently. They are a preferred choice for the less visible teeth at the back.

      Porcelain-Metal Combo Crowns

      These have a solid metal core and are topped with porcelain to give a natural appearance. They can be tailored to blend with the shade of the neighbouring teeth, offering a visually pleasing contrast to solely metal crowns.

      Ceramic Crowns

      Those in pursuit of superior aesthetic outcomes might opt for ceramic crowns. They offer an impeccable color match to natural teeth, making them an excellent pick for the visible front teeth.

      Resin Crowns

      The most cost-effective of the options, resin crowns, though they tend to wear and break more readily than other variants.

      When is a Dental Crown Needed?

      If a tooth is cracked, shattered, or decayed beyond what a regular filling can fix, a dental crown could be the optimal solution. Neglecting such issues could lead to the root's involvement, escalating the complexity of the issue.

      Dental Crowns and Bridges

      Dental crowns and bridges are tailor-made fixtures for teeth, crafted to substitute absent teeth or refurbish damaged ones, enhancing their look, functionality, and durability. Crowns encase natural teeth or implants; bridges fill in vacant spaces of missing teeth, anchored to adjacent teeth or implants.

      Crown and bridge treatments restore adequate mastication functions and endow you with a natural, radiant smile.

      Schedule a check-up with Dr. Sigel to discern if you could benefit from these restorative procedures!

      Steps to Receive a Dental Crown

      Ordinarily, two appointments to Lakeview Dental are needed to complete the crown placement. The first involves tooth evaluation and preparation, impression taking, and temporary crown installation.

      At the follow-up, the provisional crown is replaced with the permanent one, firmly adhered in position.

      Experience During Treatment

      With the aid of local anesthetics or sedation dentistry, patients usually find the procedure pain-free. Some temporary discomfort or sensitivity post-treatment is commonplace and quickly fades.

      How long do Dental Crowns last?

      Expect a dental crown to last between 5 and 15 years, contingent on the chosen material, exposure to wear, and individual oral hygiene practices.

      Advantages of Dental Crowns

      Visual Enhancement

      Crowns remarkably improve the look of teeth. Be it ceramic or porcelain combined with metal; they can be adapted to your natural teeth’s hue for a stunning transformation.

      Functional Restoration

      Beyond aesthetics, crowns restore the operation of teeth. Eating and talking become as effortless as with natural teeth upon cap installation.

      Long-Lasting Solution

      The durability of dental crowns, especially with optimal care, renders them a prolonged resolution for intensive dental issues.

      When are Crowns and Bridges Appropriate?

      • Crowns suit teeth that, though damaged or decayed, retain substantial structure.
      • Post root canal, teeth typically get crowned to bolster their longevity.
      • Bridges effectively replace a sequence of missing teeth flanked by healthy ones.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      What are the differences between a dentist crown and a cap?

      A dental crown and a cap are essentially the same thing, just different terms used to describe a restoration that covers a tooth for protection or aesthetic improvement.

      What do I need to know about caring for my dental crown?

      Maintenance includes regular brushing and flossing, with care specifics depending on the material of the crown​.

      Are dental crowns temporary or permanent?

      Typically permanent, though some can be removed for replacement if needed.

      Can I replace an old dental crown?

      Yes, you can replace an old dental crown, but it requires Dr. Sigel to evaluate the condition of the existing crown and the underlying tooth before proceeding with a replacement.

      Expenses and Insurance Coverage

      The price for a crown is influenced by the type of crown, if you require a bridge, and the complexity of your individual situation. Lakeview Dental is devoted to offering premium yet economical dental treatments.

      We assist in comprehending insurance inclusions and determining suitable payment modalities.

      Possible Concerns

      Mild Discomfort

      A few may encounter temporary discomfort or sensitivity, especially to temperature extremes, but this is transient.

      Wear and Tear

      Crowns are strong but not invulnerable. If chipping or loosening occurs, promptly reach out to Dr. Sigel.

      Allergic Responses

      Allergies to metals in certain crowns, though scarce, are possible.

      Caring for Your Dental Crown

      Optimal oral hygiene, inclusive of daily brushing and flossing and regular dental check-ups, is instrumental in prolonging your crown’s lifespan.

      A huge thank you to Dr Sigel along with his friendly and professional staff for accommodating my dental emergency - a crown that popped out after I ate the yellow starburst that my daughter doesn’t like. The 1st point here: if you have crowns avoid starbursts candy and anything else that the good Dr Greg Sigel says. The 2nd point - if you do eat a starburst and lose a crown, call Lakeview Dental in Westbank ASAP for great service, reasonable rates and a 5 star experience. Thank you everyone for rescuing our family camping trip!

      Recently moved to Kelowna. After a lot of research, tried Lakeview Dental. The office is bright and clean. Staff are friendly, patient and gentle. I have bad teeth and visit the dentist more than I would prefer, so I have a lot of anxiety around it. I am very comfortable and satisfied with my experience here. They are very accommodating and have many options and methods to help with my anxiety. I was so pleased I also brought my kids here. My 11 year old said it was the best dentist he's been to so far! (He's been to two others, child and adult dentists). I have recommended this dentist and would continue to recommend.

      I can’t rave about this dental office enough! Everything from the atmosphere, the staff, and the dental work! Dr. Sigel and his team are the best ever! I have dental anxiety, him and all his amazing staff made me feel so calm at every appointment I had! I’ve had cleanings all the way to wisdom teeth removal done in office! They answered all my questions and they are all so kind and supportive! My daughter had her first check up here as well and she can’t wait to come back for another! This has been the best switch I have made! I love that there is someone this amazing on the westside!
