If your teeth are badly damaged, dental crowns may be the right treatment for you. Here at Central Guelph Dentistry, our dental crowns utilize a tooth-shaped covering or “cap” made from metal, porcelain and metal fused to porcelain. Crowns are used to restore the strength of your tooth and alleviate oral discomfort. They can also be used to cap the titanium post of a dental implant or to anchor a dental bridge in place.
