DENTAL CROWNS

Sometimes the loss of tooth structures is so advanced, that a direct or indirect filling is not a solution. In such cases, crowns are the best solution. Other clinical cases, in which a crown may be required, are: cracked teeth, teeth, which have had their root canals treated, etc. Dental crowns represent a “cap” that completely encircles a tooth or an implant. They are usually bonded to the tooth with dental cement. Crowns can be made of various materials- different types of all-porcelain, resin, metal, metal-ceramics, strengthened composite- e-max. Our restorative specialists will recommend which material is best for your case, so that the budget meets the aesthetic needs.

Used
Materials

Firstly, the tooth is prepared for a crown. The restorative specialist gives it a shape of a smaller version of the tooth. If there is decay, it is cleaned and restored with composite.
A temporary crown is made. An impression is taken on the same or the next visit, and then a crown is fabricated by the dental technician. There may be a couple of try-ins, until both the patient and dentist are satisfied with the shape and color of the crown. The crown recreates the natural anatomy, contacts with the adjacent teeth and antagonists and is a very esthetic, functional and lasting in time solution.
