Dental Crowns

crownA crown (cap) is a restoration that is placed on teeth that have lost a lot of their structure. There are many different types of crowns; full porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, full metal crowns... Your dentist will explain the advantage and disadvantage of each kind for you.

The process of making a crown includes many steps that start in our office. We prepare the tooth and take an impression from the tooth/teeth involved. A temporary crown or bridge is then placed on your tooth while awaiting the finished product.

The impressions are sent to the lab then a mold of the teeth is poured and the work begins.

There are several steps involved and different technicians work on the mold to fabricate the crown or bridge. The completed work is sent back to our office and after multiple necessary checks and adjustments, it is cemented onto your teeth.
