Suspect a Dental Problem? Don't Delay Treatment!
There are several common symptoms that indicate tooth damage or an infection. Tooth pain, sensitivity to temperatures, and swelling of the gums are all signs you need to see the dentist. The sooner you make an appointment, the more likely we can resolve the problem with simple treatment like a root canal and dental crown.
On the other hand, putting off an appointment can cause the condition to get worse. Over time bacteria, decay, and infection will compromise the entire structure and may spread to surrounding teeth. Don't risk losing your tooth or needing extractions. You can schedule an appointment at Vitacare Dental Centre in Coquitlam today to get the help you need.

Dental Crown Materials Understanding Your Options
When you require a crown at our dentistry practice, we will take the time to discuss the treatment with you in detail. 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 will go over the benefits of the various different materials and help you make the best decision for your smile.
The Benefits of Dental Crowns
Preserve Your Natural ToothCrowns 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.
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 StructureToday'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
Let's go through the dental crown treatment process step by step:
Crowns are used to address a variety of dental problems.
Dental Crowns Have Impressive Success Rates
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 traditional dental bridge, patients can now get a dental implant that is capped by a single dental crown.
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.
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.

Don't Be Nervous About Getting a Crown
We Ensure Your Total Comfort
Despite common misconceptions, getting a dental crown is no more painful than getting a filling. It is a minor procedure that is relatively comfortable with the help of local anesthesia.
Nevertheless, we understand that some patients experience higher levels of sensitivity and discomfort than others. That is why we offer sedation dentistry. Sedation is administered prior to a dental procedure to induce a state of relaxation and mild drowsiness. It is designed to help patients overcome anxiety, low pain tolerance, and other obstacles that cause them to avoid the dentist.
If you believe sedation can help you feel more comfortable please ask about your options during your consultation at our Coquitlam practice.
Dental Crown FAQ
How long do dental crowns last?
The lifespan of a dental crown can vary from patient to patient. Since our crowns are made with the highest quality materials and technologies, they often last a decade or even longer. Nevertheless, you must care for your teeth properly to ensure your restoration lasts as long as possible.
Can you whiten a dental crown?
Porcelain, IPS e.max, and other natural-looking materials we use to make crowns cannot be altered in color after they are made. On the upside, these materials are less porous than tooth enamel, making your crown resistant to stains and discoloration. However, if are unhappy with the current shade of your teeth, it is important to undergo whitening treatment prior to getting your crown to ensure the proper color consistency. Our Coquitlam practice can whiten your teeth and color-match your crown to create a beautiful, brighter smile.
Are there any alternatives to getting a dental crown?
The type of restorative procedure needed to repair a tooth all depends on the extent of the damage. While minor cavities and cosmetic flaws can be treated with less invasive alternatives, we usually only recommend a crown when these are no longer an option. In these cases, there is really no better alternative to a dental crown.
Can dental crowns get cavities?
It is not possible for your crown itself to get a cavity. However, the underlying tooth is still susceptible to decay and infection. This can occur when bacteria accumulate around the tooth and spread underneath the edges of your restoration. You can prevent this by brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing with extra care around your crowned tooth.
