The Process of Getting a Dental Crown

There are generally two appointments or visits needed to fully get a dental crown. The first visit is more on the examination and preparation of the affected tooth, the second one is the actual setting of the dental crowns.

*First Visit: *During the first visit, the dentist will have to take X-rays to get a proper view of the tooth that is affected. They have to accurately identify what the problem is and how severe it is so they can determine the type of dental crown to use. This is also the time when the tooth preparation, then impression and the temporary crown is made so that the dental technician can fashion a dental crown that is accurate to the measurement of your tooth.

*Second Visit: *During the second visit, the temporary crown is removed and the permanent crown that was made by the dental technician will take its place. On the implant abutment, either screw or cement-retained crowns can be placed.

The Types of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns can come in a variety of materials. They are either made of metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, and full ceramic. Let us discuss some of the common ones.

Metal: These dental crowns are normally made of alloys with high contents of either platinum or gold. Since they are made of metal, they are more durable and they can handle even the harshest chewing activities. Because of the durability, metal crowns are the most efficient when it comes to the longevity of the wear down. The only disadvantage of metal crowns is their metallic appearance. They are perfect solutions if the affected tooth is in the molar areas that are out of sight.

Porcelain-fused-to-metal: *Unlike metal crowns, porcelain crowns can actually be made with a color that matches the adjacent teeth. If you have issues with a tooth that is very visible, a *porcelain ceramic crown would be your best choice

Full ceramic: or metal-free or all-ceramic crown seems to be the best fixed-restoration of a tooth. All-ceramic restoration of an anterior tooth is a challenging clinical situation for which a variety of all-ceramic systems and types of cement are available. Ceramic materials e.g. zirconium dioxide are both functional and aesthetic materials
