A dental crown is a cap that fits snug over your tooth. It resembles are real teeth, and is usual made with porcelain or gold. All same day crowns are made with porcelain. The crown will cover your tooth right to the gum line.
The Traditional Crown process goes as follows: – Two visits to the dentist
1.) The first visit the dentist takes an impression of your tooth and prepares the tooth for its crown. The preparation phase could include modifying your tooth with a file so the crown will fit. The dentist will then give you a temporary crown or filling to protect your tooth while you wait. The dentist will then send the impression he made to the lab. The lab will make the crown within two or three weeks and send it back.
2.) The second visit would include the dentist applying the new permanent crown to your tooth. The whole
The Same Day Crown Process – One office Visit
1.) To start the process the dentist uses a 3d camera to take pictures of the tooth. Any type of instrument placed in your mouth can be a little uncomfortable, but taking 3D pictures of the tooth doesn’t seem to bother most patients at all.
2.) The dentist will make sure he has the correct measurements of your teeth. Images are put on a computer software program that is used to create the exact image of the crown with the proper dimensions. The CAM( Computer aided manufacturing) will create the tooth within a hour or two, you will have the crown fitted, and then you will be free to go.
