What is Dental Crown?

dental crown is a cover that we place over the disfigured teeth to restore the function and appearance of the teeth. It also protects the teeth from any external and internal forces like bite force.

When will we suggest you a dental crown:

How we make dental crowns for you?

  1. The tooth is ground at first, no dental caps can be placed without grinding the teeth. It’s done totally in a painless method this is called crown preparation.
  2. An impression of the upper and lower jaw is taken with impression material.
  3. A cast is then poured into the impression material to acquire the replica of your jaw.
  4. The cast is then articulated on the articulator that simulates your jaw movement.
  5. The articulator is sent to the dental labs where the desired tooth is cast or milled accordingly to get a new tooth crown.
  6. The dental crown is then delivered to the dental clinic.
  7. The dental crown is then fixed on your teeth using dental cement.
