Your Cosmetic Options in Dental Crowns
As a useful solution in cosmetic dentistry, crowns – also known as caps – can cover such cosmetic problems such as unevenly shaped and badly stained teeth.

Take Care of Your New Crown
Crowns clean just like natural teeth with regular brushing and flossing. Your new crown is strong – but not quite as strong as your natural tooth – and can last for up to 10 years, if you take care of it. That means no biting of hard objects and no using your teeth to open or cut anything.
Please call the Winnipeg dental office of ADG to book an appointment to discuss if a crown is a solution to your cosmetic dentistry needs.
