What is a dental crown?

Dental crowns or bridges are porcelain pieces that cover the tooth in its entirety in order to protect it from fracture when it is very deteriorated or to recover the
anatomy lost due to wear. They also help us to improve dental aesthetics, although whenever the tooth allows it, we will choose to perform veneers to be more conservative in our treatment.

  • Improves dental aesthetics.
  • Recover the lost anatomy.
  • Improves chewing.
  • Protects damaged teeth.

Dental Crown Treatment

1. Planning and diagnosis

Crown treatment is indicated when the tooth is severely damaged and requires a protective cover.

With the aim of achieving the best adjustments, we perform all our prostheses with digital procedures, from impression taking with intraoral scanners, to the design and milling of the piece in lithium disilicate or zirconium.

2. Execution of treatment

At the time of the treatment, anesthesia is given for the dental preparation, once this preparation is finished, a provisional crown is placed. With this provisional crown the tooth is protected, the aesthetics of the smile are checked and we make sure that the anatomy is comfortable and functional. Once all the checks are done, you will be given an appointment where we will put the final crown.
