Crowns are like protective caps, which are placed over the remaining, abraded tooth substance to restore healthy appearance and function. Also, the remaining tooth substance is held together and stabilized.
Before use, we’ll ensure the affected tooth is prepared. After that, an impression is taken, which serves as a template for the production of an exact pattern of your dental crown. For root-treated teeth, a fiberglass pin assembly is usually required to stabilize the crown, which will later be placed on it. After completion, the newly created crown is fixed with dental cement directly on the tooth stump. We strive to be as exact as possible when making the impression of the tooth, thereby preventing fissures at the transitions from crown to the tooth.
