Dental Crowns

Tooth decay, fractures, and missing teeth detract from your smile, cause discomfort, and negatively affect your dental health.

Dr. Alex Wong and Dr. Vanessa Lee can repair and enhance your teeth by using custom metal and porcelain dental crowns.

See How Teeth Are Prepared for Custom Dental Crowns

A dental crown covers a damaged tooth down to the gum line. When the dental crown is in place, it essentially caps the tooth. We remove a small amount of the remaining tooth enamel to ensure a comfortable yet optimal fit that contributes to chewing and other functions.

Dental Crown Materials


While Vitacare Dental Centre can use a wide variety of materials for custom restorations, our dentists prefer zirconia and IPS e.max®. Both materials are strong, and they closely resemble the appearance of your natural teeth. During your consultation at our Coquitlam, BC, practice, we can discuss which kind of material would be best for your needs.

The Benefits of Dental Crowns

Porcelain dental crowns have numerous cosmetic and restorative benefits. Our dentists can discuss even more advantages of getting custom dental crowns during your consultation.

Preserve Your Natural Tooth

Crowns can be an alternative to tooth extraction. Instead of removing a damaged tooth, our dentists can cover it with a permanent crown, which is both better for your dental health and more affordable than implant dentistry.

Long-Lasting Results

If you practice good oral hygiene and regularly visit our office in Coquitlam, BC, for checkups, a single permanent crown can protect a tooth for up to 15 years.

Resembles Natural Tooth Structure

Today's dental crowns use lifelike porcelain that is virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. Even temporary crowns from our practice look realistic, which speaks to the great craft and care of modern dentistry.

The Dental Crown Procedure

Crowns are used to address a variety of dental problems.

Let's go through the dental crown treatment process step by step:

Crowns are used to address a variety of dental problems.

Initial Consultation

During your initial consultation at our Coquitlam, BC, dental office, we will examine your teeth and discuss your dental health issues to determine if a crown or another solution is right for you. We can discuss the use of porcelain, e.max, zirconia, gold, and other kinds of materials that may be suitable for your needs.

Prepping and Impressions

Next, we will prep the tooth. This involves removal of compromised tissue and reshaping of the tooth to accommodate the crown. With the tooth prepped, we then take an impression. We can take traditional or digital impressions based on your needs.

Placing a Temporary Crown

It takes a week to two weeks for the off-site dental lab to create a custom dental crown. During this time, you will wear a temporary crown. 

Creating the Custom Restoration

Vitacare Dental Centre partners with a trusted dental lab. Using the impressions and additional notes provided, the lab technicians will craft a custom dental crown using the material of your choice.

Placing the Completed Crown

Once the final dental crown arrives, you will return to Vitacare Dental Centre for placement. Our dentists check the completed restoration for fit, making final adjustments as needed before it is cemented onto the compromised tooth.

Implant-Supported Dental Crowns for Single-Tooth Replacement in Coquitlam

In the past, a dental bridge was the primary option for single-tooth replacement. Rather than relying on a bridge, patients can now get a dental implant that is capped by a single dental crown.

Unmatched Stability

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically anchored into the jaw bone. After the implant fuses with the bone structure (a process known as osseointegration), it provides an unparalleled level of stability, comparable to natural tooth roots. Biting, chewing, speaking, and other normal activities can be performed with ease thanks to the strength of dental implants.

Realistic Appearance

The single-tooth restoration will be crafted to closely resemble your surrounding natural teeth. Whether we use porcelain, e.max, zirconia, or another material, our goal is to ensure your smile looks great and that you experience restored oral function.

Making Crowns More Convenient
Putting Our Patients First

Whether you need multiple teeth capped or just a single tooth, our dentists strive to make receiving temporary crowns and permanent crowns as convenient as possible for every patient.

Help with Insurance

The cost of getting crowns and the hassles of insurance keep some patients from getting much-needed dental work. Our staff eases the burden by dealing with insurance providers for you. We will make sure you access every available benefit from your insurance plan.

Thorough Consultations

When you require a crown at our dentistry practice, we will take the time to discuss the treatment with you in detail. We will explain the different crown options we offer, including gold crowns and all-ceramic crowns, and help you decide which approach is best for you.
