Details about Crowns
When a tooth needs a restoration, sometimes the best choice is an all porcelain crown. It’s precision crafted in a dental laboratory, so it may take 2 or more appointments to restore your tooth with a porcelain crown.
On your first visit we numb the area to make you comfortable. We may also use a rubber dam to protect your mouth whilst we work. Then we remove any decay and shape the tooth with a hand piece.
Next we will take an impression of your teeth. The lab uses the impression to make a model of your mouth. They’ll use the model to create a crown that precisely fits your tooth and bite.
In the meantime we often place a temporary crown. On your next visit we remove the temporary and try in your new porcelain crown. We check the fit and when everything looks good we bond or cement the crown in place.
A porcelain crown has several advantages, it covers and protects the tooth, it's strong and durable and the porcelain has the life like translucently of natural teeth.
When you need a crown, porcelain crowns are a natural looking choice."
