Crown Services (CEREC)
A crown is a “cap” designed to look like a tooth that is placed on
a tooth that is weak, broken or restored. A crown is a very
common way to restore a tooth that has been saved.

Benefits Of Choosing Warmstone Family Dentistry
The advantages of a crown include fixing damaged or discoloured teeth, putting a “cap” on an implant/root canal tooth for protection and reinforcement of a dental bridge. Crowns also have a cosmetic component to them. They can be used to reshape a tooth, fix discolouring or help correct a smile.
Warmstone uses state of the art CEREC technology which allows us to complete the crown process in a single visit without needing to send anything to a lab. The creation of the crown is all done onsite with CEREC technology. This also eliminates the need for a messy and uncomfortable impression as the CEREC has the ability to take a digital scan of your entire mouth.

The Crown Process
1 An x-ray is taken so the dentist may properly assess the situation and determine the best course of action.
2 Local anesthetic is applied. The tooth is prepared for the procedure then a digital scan is taken.
3 Since Warmstone Family Dentistry is using CEREC technology, there is no need for a “temporary” crown or a return visit. We create the crown while you sit back and enjoy Netflix on our overhead TVs. The dentist is digitally designing your crown while the CEREC technology produces it out of dental material onsite.
4 Once the crown is complete the dentist then places the cap on the tooth.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need to get a dental crown?
Dental crowns are meant to be a long term solution for a variety of dental problems. They can protect and fix damaged teeth by placing a “cap” on an implant/root canal tooth for protection or to reinforce a dental bridge.
They can also be used for cosmetic purposes to fix discolouring of a tooth or they can be used to reshape a tooth.
Dental crowns are also made to be durable so that they are a good long-term option for a number of dental problems. When cared for properly, dental crowns can last for 5-15 years.
Contact Warmstone Family Dentistry to find out if a dental crown is right for you.
Will a dental crown affect my smile/appearance?
At Warmstone Family Dentistry, we use state-of-the-art CEREC technology for the dental crown process. We are able to take a digital scan of your entire mouth to create an accurate crown to make sure your bite continues to feel natural and comfortable.
We also take the time to make sure the colour of the crown accurately matches the rest of your teeth so that there is no change to your smile or appearance.
Contact our clinic today if you have any further questions about dental crowns.
How long does a dental crown last?
Crowns are designed to be durable and can last anywhere from 5-15 years. A properly fabricated and well cared for crown can last decades.
Our team at Warmstone Family Dentistry will assess your situation and determine the best course of action to provide you with a dental crown that is designed to best fit your needs.
We consider the following during our assessment:
- Location of the tooth
- How much of the natural tooth remains
- How much of the crown will be visible when you smile.
These considerations can help us determine what the best material to use.
Dental hygiene habits can also greatly affect the lifespan of your crown. It is recommended to do the following to increase the lifespan of your crown:
- Brushing 2-3 times per day
- Flossing at least once per day
- Professional dental cleaning every 6 months
How long your dental crown lasts can also be affected by the health of the affected tooth and tooth grinding.
Contact Warmstone Family Dentistry today to book a consultation to discuss how a dental crown can help you.
What do I do if my dental crown breaks or falls out?
If your dental crown breaks or falls out, it is crucial to contact our dental clinic immediately. One of the purposes of a dental crown is to protect a damaged tooth. If your dental crown breaks or falls out, this could result in further or more extensive damage to your original dental problem.
We offer dental emergency services with professional attention and care to your specific needs. Contact our clinic if you are experiencing any issues with your dental crown!
Is there anything I can’t eat with a dental crown?
It depends! Our dental crown process is completed within one appointment, so you won’t have to deal with restricting your eating habits, like you would with a temporary crown.
A dental crown will give you the same bite strength and chewing capabilities that you have with natural teeth, so you will be able to eat without restrictions. That being said, the way you treat your dental crown can greatly impact how long it will last. For instance, chewing on ice or other very hard foods can wear down a dental crown faster. While you won’t have to avoid any foods, just be cautious of habits that might be bad for your teeth.
