How Is a Porcelain Dental Crown Made?

Posted .

Porcelain dental crowns are very popular among patients who prefer discreet, natural-looking dental restorations. If you are interested in learning how these innovative dental crowns are created, we are glad you found Harvest Dental’s blog!

We are committed to providing dental crowns that fit and feel just like a natural tooth. Before preparing for a dental crown, your dentist, Drs. Horsley or Walker will examine the weakened or damaged tooth to ensure that it can support a dental crown. Then, he shapes the tooth to create room for the dental crown. If a tooth is severely damaged or broken, he may need to build it up and make it large enough to support a crown.

One the tooth is ready, impressions of the tooth and surrounding teeth will be taken to ensure your new dental crown is custom made. Accurate impressions are the key to a well-fitted and long-lasting dental crown. These impressions are used by skilled dental technicians to create the permanent crown.

Once your new dental crown is ready, we will invite you back to the office for a second visit, where we will place the dental crown and check its fit and color, making any tweaks if necessary. Finally, we properly position the crown and cement it in place.
