Porcelain crowns or caps are a type of restoration that is fixed onto those teeth that have lost a major portion of their tooth structure. There are many kinds of crowns available that range from all porcelain to all metal. Your Saratoga dentist, Dr. Prasad will give you the details regarding the benefits and drawbacks of each type.
The procedure of crown fabrication involves steps that start from the preparation of the tooth/teeth, followed by the recording of impression of the involved teeth. Then, a temporary crown or bridge is fixed to your teeth.
In the meantime, the impressions that were taken earlier will be sent to the laboratory where a cast of the teeth is poured and the process of permanent crown fabrication commences. The finished work is sent back to the dental office; after carrying out thorough assessment and required alterations if any, it is bonded to your teeth.
