Dental Crowns Near You
If you have a tooth weakened by a large filling or a large cavity, a dental crown may be needed to protect and restore the tooth long-term. Crowns are also used to improve a patient’s bite, to improve the appearance of a damaged or discoloured tooth, and may decrease the risk of future tooth decay.

Dental crowns, or caps, are tooth-shaped prosthetics that are adhered over the top of teeth to repair their size, shape, and therefore their function, while also improving their aesthetic appearance. They can be fabricated from several different materials like porcelain, metal, or a combination of the two.
Like dental fillings and veneers, crowns can effectively solve the following oral health problems:
- Broken teeth
- Worn-down or weakened teeth
- Severely stained
- A cavity that dental filling cannot adequately repair
- Covering up an irregularly shaped tooth
Crowns can also be used to hold dental bridges in place, cover up dental implants, and protect a tooth that’s just undergone a root canal.
On average, two appointments are needed to acquire a dental crown in Comox Valley. Your dentist needs to pre-approve you for this treatment before any official dental work can be performed.
First, any decay or debris will be removed so that the crown can be properly fitted to your tooth. Next, impressions of your tooth will be taken, which are used to design a customized crown, then provide you with a temporary device to protect your tooth in the meantime.
When your permanent crown is ready, the dentist will swap it with the temporary one, checking that it does fit you. They’ll also make any necessary adjustments so that your bite pattern is not altered. Your crown is cemented in place and then polished. And voila! A newly repaired, beautiful-looking tooth!
