A Crown or Cap is required to protect a sensitive tooth that has been damaged, decayed, fractured or contain a old large filling. With a Crown, it protects the rest of the tooth structure and provides a more natural looking smile. The material of the crown can be either full porcelain, metal or a combination of the two. The colour of the crown will also match the natural colour of your teeth so it is visibly undetectable.
Putting a Crown on usually takes two visits. The first visit, the tooth is prepared and shaped to fit the crown and a mold is taken. A temporary crown may be placed in your initial visit.
One your 2nd visit, the temporary crown is removed and replaced by the permanent crown.
Anesthetic will be applied during the procedure making it no more painful than a filling.
I wish City Dental could serve the whole city; they were excellent. The reception staff were helpful, knowledgeable and funny. Wait times were non-existent, the office was squeaky-clean, and the atmosphere was pleasant. Dr. Gill and his assistant are very accommodating, keep you informed every step of the way, and provide efficient and effective service at great prices. Top-notch clinic.
Everyone in the office is extremely friendly and make you feel at ease. Dr. Gill is extremely knowledgeable and is excellent at calming my fears and addressing any of my concerns. He is patient and takes his time in explaining any issue and making it very easy to understand. I would highly recommend City Dental and Dr. Gill for anyone who is looking for a great dental experience.
Dr. Gill has an excellent chair side manner and is all about options. He has up to date equipment and weighs the pros and cons of each possible approach and outcome. I couldn't have been in better hands. Dr. Gill was thorough, gentle and efficient in performing a root canal and made my tooth pain go away. His pricing is very reasonable and the entire staff is very friendly and attentive.
