When damage on a tooth requires more than a filling, a dental crown is a great option to get it looking and feeling like normal again. If you’ve recently had a root canal, a large filling in a tooth or a broken, you may need a dental crown. Dental Crowns, also known as tooth crowns, act as a "caps" that will fit over a tooth, restoring the look, size, and function of the damaged tooth. Prevent further damage and decay on your affected tooth or teeth and book your appointment for a dental crown today.
West Kelowna's Dental Crown Service
At Westside Dental we know crowns and bridges are essential for maintaining, restoring and adding to the strength of the structural integrity in your teeth. While we offer dental implants in West Kelowna, in many cases a crown or bridge is the right solution for the patient. Crown caps can give you confidence and restore your smile, make eating more comfortable, and reduce dental pain. Our Dental Crown experts ensure your capped teeth look and feel just like natural teeth.
Dental Crown Options
Crowns are effective in protecting weak teeth from breaking, or holding together parts of a cracked tooth. Crowns also are used to cover teeth that already have fillings, when there’s not enough tooth surface left for a filling to suffice. They can also be used to hold a dental bridge in place, to cover dental implants, or to cover discoloured or misshapen teeth. We provide a variety of dental crown options to the Westbank and West Kelowna communities. Contact us today to discuss your options for dental crowns.

Different Types of Crowns
Dental crowns are available in all sorts of materials, with varying looks and purposes. The best tooth crown for you will depend on the placement of the damaged tooth/teeth and your unique situation. The experts at Westside Dental will help you decide the best crown or crowns for you. Some crowns are metal, a good choice for molars as they are out of sight – however having gold or silver on your front teeth hasn’t been necessary or stylish for many years now. Other crowns are made of a metal base with porcelain fused to the surface, giving your dental bridge a much more natural look. Other materials such as ceramic or resin are also available. Our Dental Crown Experts will work with you for the perfect solution.
When entire teeth are missing, a fixed bridge is an effective and affordable means of replacing them. A dental bridge can prevent a chain reaction of dental problems, including shifting teeth, difficulty keeping teeth free of plaque and bacteria, loss of bone in the jaw, difficulty chewing, grinding and clenching, and pain in the jaw joint. Bridges are an alternative to implants, with varying factors such as cost, durability, aesthetics, etc. We proudly serve the Westbank and West Kelowna regions and would happily set up an appointment to meet with you to discuss all options and find the best treatment plan for you.
Frequently Asked Questions
The frequency of your dental exam will depend on your unique dental health care needs. Many patients visit the dentist every six months. At a minimum you should visit the dentist at least once per year. How well you care for your teeth, whether you have any issues that need monitoring and the status of your general health can all influence the required frequency of your exams. The goal is to catch any trouble signs early.
Talk to your dentist about your oral health care needs and the frequency of your dental exam.
The BCDA has produced a patient fact sheet to help you understand some of the things your dentist may look for during your exam. What is included in a dental exam or at each visit is not the same for everyone. Factors such as age, dental health status, level of general health, medication use and lifestyle choices may influence what is covered. Ask your dentist if you have any questions about your exam or what your dentist is looking for during your exam.
The early stages of dental disease do not have any symptoms. Dental disease is not reversible so prevention and early detection is extremely important. Your dentist is trained to catch early signs of conditions affecting your mouth to stop the progression of disease and prevent small problems from becoming larger ones.
