CROWNS
When a tooth is fractured, has a large, old filling, or is severely damaged by decay, your dentist may recommend the placement of a crown, or cap. Crowns strengthen and protect the remaining tooth structure and can improve the appearance of your smile. Types of crowns include the full porcelain crown, the porcelain-fused-to-metal crown and the all-metal crown.

 

Fitting a crown requires at least two visits to the dentist's office.

Initially, the Dentist:

  • Removes decay and shapes the tooth.
  • Makes an Impression.
  • Makes and fits a temporary or transitional crown of plastic or metal.

In a subsequent visit, the dentist:

  • Removes the temporary crown, fits and adjusts the final crown.
  • Cements the crown into place.
