A crown may be necessary if a tooth is cracked or broken. The crowns we typically offer are made of all porcelain material which allows for a very specific color match and stability. We have found that this material is the strongest to use for the majority of our patients. We also offer porcelain over metal or all gold crowns, a patient's preference is always taken into consideration.
Preparation time for a single tooth is ordinarily one hour. This procedure starts by reducing the tooth by one millimeter on the top and sides. Next, we make an impression of the tooth for our lab. Finally, we cement in a temporary crown.
Approximately three weeks later the permanent crown is returned from our lab, and we cement it in.
