If the tooth is damaged or of poor quality, a new ceramic crown is probably the best solution. Installation 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 as well.
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.
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.
The natural tooth is given minor preparation or adjustments. A temporary crown is attached.
A week or so after the first visit, the permanent crown is securely fitted. Normally, it will serve its owner for life.
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.
