A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size.  A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.

There are several types of crowns, porcelain (tooth colored crown), ceramic or gold. At Nebula Dental Clinic Dr Amr will discuss the various material options to assist the patient in making the decision on the right treatment.

Reasons for crowns:

  • Broken or fractured teeth.
  • Cosmetic enhancement.
  • Decayed teeth.
  • Fractured fillings.
  • Large fillings.
  • Tooth has a root canal.

What does getting a crown involve?

A crown procedure traditionally requires two appointments.  Your first appointment will include freezing, preparing the tooth and  taking several highly accurate molds (or impressions) that will be used to create your custom crown.  A mold will also be used to create a temporary crown which will stay on your tooth for approximately two weeks until your new crown is fabricated by a dental laboratory.

However, with the use of the CEREC machine at Nebula Dental Clinic, no molds will be taken as an intraoral scanner will be used to create a digital impression after the tooth is prepared under freezing. A ceramic crown is then designed and milled through CAD-CAM technology and delivered at the same appointment.
