Dental crowns are made of a unique ceramic material widely referred to as dental porcelain. At Molson Park Dental Office, we use the most advanced materials for porcelain crowns, porcelain veneers, and dental bridges. Our dentists work tirelessly to ensure that we stay up-to-date with the most effective options for you (our patients). Our dental care facility offers e.max ZirCAD crowns, which are known to have a zirconia lining. These dental crowns use a different empress material that offers strength and opalescence.
Why Dental Crowns
Also known as caps, tooth crowns are custom-made to fit over your tooth. They can be used to save a tooth that has suffered severe trauma or decay and add function and strength to a tooth that’s worn down, broken, or cracked. Dental crowns can also be used to provide anchors for dental bridges, make a damaged tooth look more natural, and serve as replacement teeth for dental implants.
How Tooth Crowns are Made
If you have a tooth that needs a dental crown or you want an old crown replaced, consult with our dentists. Perhaps you have seen dark lines along your dental crowns that may be visible whenever you smile. These lines, according to our dentists, are caused by gum tissue that’s shrinking gradually, exposing the original metal lining of the dental crowns. Being some of the most reputable cosmetic dentists in Barrie, our team of highly trained dentists provides all-porcelain dental crowns with no metallic lining. That means you won’t have to deal with exposed metal lining in the future.

Types of Dental Crowns
As with nearly all cosmetic dental options, there are different types of dental crowns available at Molson Park Dental Office. After analyzing your dental health condition, our dentists will make a well-thought-out recommendation on how you should proceed with dental-related treatments. The dentist will take you through different options, and the two of you will make the most viable treatment choice. Some of the most common types of dental crowns are porcelain tooth crowns and porcelain-fused-to-metal dental crowns.
The Dental Crown Procedure
Our dentists and team of certified dental care experts will perform a series of X-rays and examinations. If you have decided to go forward with dental crowns, your dentist will start the dental crown preparation process. This is a minimally invasive procedure that shouldn’t take long. If you want to learn more about dental crowns and probably determine whether you are a great candidate for dental crowns, consult with Molson Park Dental Office.
