A crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity or filling threatens the ongoing health of a tooth and are recommended for teeth that are root treated. Crowns are also often used to improve the appearance of teeth. They are typically bonded to the tooth using a dental cement. The benefits, as described above, include long-term durability and evidence-based success as compared to other restorations or no treatment.
A newer and more affordable alternative to a conventional crown is the Rhondium™ One Visit Crown (OVC) – a revolutionary treatment that saves time for both patient and dentist. Parkwood Dental is an approved OVC provider. Talk to your dentist to assess your suitability for this treatment. For more information, please click here to visit the One Visit Crown website.
