A crown (cap) is a restoration that is placed on teeth that have lost a lot
of their structure. There are various types of crowns, ranging from full
porcelain to full metal. Your dentist will explain the advantages and
disadvantages of each kind for you.
process of making a crown includes a number of steps, beginning
with preparing and taking impressions of the tooth/teeth
involved. A temporary crown or bridge is then placed on your
teeth. Meanwhile, the impressions are sent to the lab where a
mold of the teeth is poured and the work begins. The completed
work is sent back to the office; after inspection and any
necessary adjustments, it is cemented onto your teeth.
