Dental Crowns in Burnaby, BC
Crowns and caps
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth — to cover the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance.The crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line .http://www.webmd.com/oral-health/guide/dental-crowns
Crowns have the following benefits:
- Protects damaged or decayed teeth
- Reduces the amount of discomfort
- Improves the functionality of your teeth
- Looks natural and is stain resistant
Dr. Sam Siew’s continuous improvement journey in the design, preparation and placement of dental crown brought him to learn under many instructors including Dr. Stibbs (Gold foil), Dr. Dick Tucker (crown and bridge), Dr. P.K. Thomas (Gnathology)… He always challenges himself and his laboratory to deliver crowns that fit perfectly at the margin, and crown design that decreases strains at the marginal ridge during occlusal loading. The greatest reward for Dr. Siew and his team is when patients return for post treatment check and remark: I do not even know I have a crown put in!
