Dental Crown Services restore the function, health, and appearance of teeth
Dental crowns are one of the most common types of dental restorations placed worldwide. This versatile treatment option can be used in a wide variety of circumstances to protect a tooth, restore its function, and improve its appearance. At Scott and Derry Dental Care in Milton, Ontario, we provide dental crown services using the latest technologies and materials for durable, natural-looking results.
How dental crowns are used
Dental crowns are custom-made restorations to fit over the top of teeth, much like a cap. In fact, crowns are often called tooth caps. Dr. Jameela Jifri may recommend a dental crown for several reasons, including:
- Holding broken pieces of a tooth together
- Restoring the shape and function of a worn-down tooth
- Anchoring a dental bridge in place
- Protecting a tooth after root canal therapy
- Improving the appearance of a tooth that is stained, misshapen, or has other aesthetic imperfections
Dental crowns can be made from several different materials. Many patients opt for porcelain because it is tooth-colored and has the same luster as natural tooth enamel, providing an end result that easily blends in with the rest of your smile.

Getting a dental crown
After your initial evaluation and consultation, getting a dental crown placed typically takes two visits. In your first visit, Dr. Jifri will prepare your tooth by removing any decayed material and shaping the tooth for the crown to be placed. We will also take dental impressions so that your crown can be custom-made to fit your prepared tooth precisely and will then place a temporary crown on your tooth. Your permanent crown will be made in the lab, which typically takes a week or two, and when it is ready, you will come back in to have the crown bonded onto your tooth.
