Dental Crowns

A decayed or broken tooth can cause you extreme pain and affect simple dental functions like biting and chewing.

A customized dental crown from the Vancouver, BC, dentists at Enlighten Dental can restore your tooth, often during one appointment.

Learn how a dental crown from Dr. Sam Paulos, General Dentist, can make your damaged tooth look, function, and feel like it's brand new.

6 Benefits of Dental Crowns

A dental crown placed by the dentists at Enlighten Dental can do much more than restore your smile's appearance. A dental crown can:

Improve Oral Health and Overall Wellness

A dental crown can restore oral functions like chewing and biting, so you can eat a healthier diet. This can improve your body's overall health. The connection between oral health and general wellness is a basic tenet of our holistic approach to dentistry.

Save Damaged Teeth from Extraction

A crown crafted from high-quality dental porcelain can reinforce a tooth compromised by decay or fractured by trauma. This prevents the need for tooth extraction.

Protect an Infected Tooth

A tooth treated for a bacterial infection in its root canal can be capped by a strong, lifelike dental crown. A crown placed after root canal therapy protects the tooth, and possibly your body, from future infections.

Replace Missing Teeth

Dental crowns firmly supported by zirconia dental implants anchored into your jaw can fill gaps caused by missing teeth. Dental implants act as artificial tooth roots that encourage healthy jawbone growth. All  implant procedure steps can be performed at Enlighten Dental.

Be a Long-Lasting Investment

With proper brushing and flossing, a crown crafted from dental-grade porcelain can protect a damaged tooth for well over a decade.

Be Covered by Insurance

Most dental insurance plans will cover a portion of your dental crown cost. Our staff will help you get the maximum coverage possible if you have insurance. Enlighten Dental also offers flexible payment options to may out-of-pocket costs more manageable.

We Can Create Your Dental Crown in One Visit

Enlighten Dental is proud to offer CEREC ® same-day dental crown technology at our Vancouver, BC, practice. Depending on your individual case, your dentist may be able to design, create, and place your customized, permanent crown in about an hour. This time-saving dentistry procedure makes it possible for you to walk in with a damaged tooth and leave with a beautiful dental crown.

The procedure is as follows:

Anesthetics

The area around your damaged tooth will be numbed for your comfort. If needed, our practice offers safe oral sedation to make this simple dental procedure a relaxing, pain-free experience.

Damaged Teeth Treatment

Next, your dentist will prepare the tooth by removing damaged dental tissue. Our dentists use a dental laser to treat damaged teeth. The laser can minimize bleeding, reduce the risk of infection, and is more comfortable than old-fashioned dental drills.

Digital Tooth Impression

CEREC's digital software will be used to take a precise 3D impression of your teeth, which will be instantly uploaded to our in-house milling machine.

Customized Dental Crown

Your customized restoration is then automatically crafted from a solid block of porcelain while you relax in comfort. When it is ready, your dentist will cement the brand new dental crown in place. The crown should blend in beautifully with adjacent teeth.

Advantages of CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns

Same-day dental crown technology saves you from having to wear a temporary crown while your permanent restoration is being crafted by an outside lab. That process can take a few weeks and add to the cost of your dental crown procedure. Plus, temporary crowns can break or come loose without proper care.

Another advantage is that you will not have to come back to our Vancouver, BC, practice to have your temporary crown removed and replaced by your permanent restoration. This saves you time and the hassle of making a second appointment.

Please know that our patients with multiple damaged teeth may need their dental crowns crafted by a trusted outside lab.
