Do you have a broken or fractured tooth, or are you self-conscious from discolouration of a particular tooth? Then dental crowns may be the answer. At Bronstein Family Dental in Winnipeg, we often recommend dental crowns in these cases. Dental crowns, popularly known as “caps,” can restore the strength and enhance the appearance of cracked or discoloured teeth. Sometimes even a root canal or an extensive filling in the tooth may make the tooth weak and vulnerable to damage; dental crowns can help in these scenarios as well. Protecting the teeth and making them functional, crowns blend with the other teeth and exude a natural look and feel. Get in touch.
Dental crowns can be made using a variety of different materials. Let us take a look:

All Resin Crowns
Dental crowns made from resin are less expensive and more affordable. However, after some time, they tend to break and wear down.
A significant part of restorative dentistry, dental crowns are perfect for replacing a single tooth at a time. Completely covering the tooth’s damage, crowns prevent further tooth decay and promote extra support and durability. It is also an alternative for tooth extraction. Instead of having your tooth removed, you can save your tooth with a crown and protect your smile. While chewing food with damaged teeth, extra pressure and further damage is being inflicted on the teeth. With the help of a dental crown, you can safeguard your tooth and reduce the pressure exerted by the damaged tooth.
