Our Procedure for Dental Crown
The first step in the process is to take an impression that will be used to make a model of the teeth and bite. This allows the crown to be made to look and function like your natural tooth. The tooth will then be prepped, with the decayed areas being removed. An impression of the prepped tooth will be made so that the final crown will fit properly when it is placed.
Sometimes the final crown can be placed on the same day but other times a temporary crown will be placed while your final restoration is being created. Crowns often last a lifetime with proper care and oral hygiene.
There are four main types of dental crown:
Porcelain Fused to Metal Crowns
These crowns are known for their strength and durability while also allowing for a natural-looking restoration.
Gold Alloys Crowns
These may be used when more strength is needed, particularly for patients who grind their teeth at night.
