Emergency or Otherwise

Your Able dentist can restore the look and function of a damaged tooth through the insertion of a crown, which is fitted over it like a cap. While crowns can be created from several materials, your Able dentist will use porcelain for the most natural look.

A crown is designed to restore and protect the tooth. With care, your crown will last for about 10 years, longer if you take care of it.

To create and install a crown, you’re Able dentist will:

  • Give you a local anesthetic.
  • File down your damaged tooth.
  • Make an impression of adjacent teeth to customize the shape of your permanent crown.
  • Install a temporary crown over the tooth to protect it until the final crown is ready.
  • On your next visit, replace the temporary crown with the permanent one and cement it into place. It will have the right fit, shape, colour and bite of the original tooth.

One-Visit Crowns

One-visit crowns are exactly as described. Your Able dentist can perform a crown restoration in a single dental visit, eliminating multiple appointments – and the need for a temporary crown – normally required to achieve the same outcome. The process uses computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) to create the desired outcome.
