When damage on a tooth requires more than a filling, a dental crown is the best option. A dental crown acts as a "cap" that will fit over a tooth, restoring the look, size, and function of the at risk tooth.
West Kelowna's Dental Crown Service
At Westside Dental we believe crowns and bridges are a mainstay in maintaining, restoring and adding to the strength of the structural integrity in one’s teeth. While we offer dental implants to West Kelowna, we do plenty of work in the fields of crowns and bridges, and believe that each can be the right option depending on a given patient’s situation.
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.

Different Types of Crowns
These days, dental crowns are available in all sorts of materials, with varying looks and purposes. Your unique situation will determine how Westside Dental establishes the best crown or crowns for you. Some crowns are metal, a good choice for molars as they are out of sight – having gold or silver in the front of one’s mouth hasn’t been necessary or desirable for many years now. Other crowns are made of a metal base with porcelain fused to the surface, giving a much more natural look. Other materials such as ceramic or resin are also available.
When teeth are missing, a fixed bridge may be a good choice for replacing them. A bridge can prevent a chain reaction of 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.
