Metal Free Crowns
Also known as caps, are used to improve strength and restore the shape, size and color to a tooth. To avoid the possibility of metal toxicity and metal related health complications, Dr. Aver uses only porcelain and metal free crowns.
Crowns are used when:
A tooth becomes weak or with decay due to a large filling
To support a broken crown
- After a root canal, to restore tooth appearance
Prepare the tooth (drilling) - This consists of shaping and removing tooth structure. Tooth reduction is dependent on the material selected.
Make impressions - Impression material is usually soft and easily conforms to the size of your mouth. This ensures the accuracy of the bite registration along with the finalized crown.
Select a shade - Choose a the shade that is closest to your teeth where the crown will be placed.
Wear a fabricated (temporary) restoration - Provisional restorations are held in place for a minimum of 2 weeks with temporary cement while the crown is being created in a dental lab.
Cement the finished crown into position - Enjoy your "new" look!
