A dental crown is a restoration used to rebuild a tooth that is severely damaged. A crown or cap encases the entire tooth and brings back function and appearance. Your Trafalgar dentist may recommend a crown if the tooth can no longer support a filling or inlay/onlay, or much of the tooth’s structure is missing.
Traditional crowns are designed and made in advance in a dental laboratory and placed at a later date. Your dentist will take impressions or molds of your teeth and send the mold to the ceramicist who will create the custom crown by hand. It requires time and meticulous attention to detail to make a crown that fits perfectly and looks natural.
It may take several days for the crown to be made however in mid-time Dentist will place temporary crowns while permanent get made.
