Dental Crowns – Improve Existing Teeth
If the tooth is damaged or of poor quality, a new ceramic crown is probably the best solution. Placement is fast. The end result is fantastic.
The all-ceramic Procera crown has many advantages over traditional crowns. Besides its high aesthetic qualities, the function and longevity of the crown is excellent too.
- Superior aesthetic result, compared to traditional crowns.
- Easy placement, quick results.
- Short and convenient treatment.
The course of treatment described here is one of several options available. Your dentist will advise as to what the best solution is for you, given your specific condition.
Step 1 – Before procedure:
The dentist makes a first evaluation and makes an impression of the existing crown. The impression is used as the prototype for the new crown.
Step 2 – Preparing the old tooth:
The natural tooth is given minor preparation or adjustments. A temporary crown is attached.
Step 3 – Placing the new crown:
A week or so after the first visit, the permanent crown is securely fitted. Normally, it will serve its owner for life.
Step 4 – End result:
The end result is a new tooth that should blend in perfectly with the others. Brush and floss as recommended by your dentist or dental hygienist.
