Crown

The part of the tooth covered by enamel and not covered by the gum. A “dental crown” also refers to an artificial tooth used to cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth left. A dental crown can be constructed of porcelain, ceramic or various alloys. Crowns can be used to cover a dental implant, attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth from breaking, or restore a tooth that is already broken. A crown may also cover a tooth that is discolored or badly shaped.

Root Canal

Space inside the root of a tooth that contains nerves and blood vessels. “Root canal” also refers to a special dental procedure used to save a tooth with a diseased nerve. After a dentist removes the pulp of the diseased tooth, the root canal is cleaned and sealed off to protect it. Then the dentist places a crown over the tooth to make it stronger.

Unfortunately we had to be seen for an emergency situation. Dr. Haron was very thorough with informing us of what was to be expected. He was spot on with what happened and what he told us to expect. His calm, gentle demeanor was quite settling for us.
