Dental Crown Treatment Marbella
Dental Crowns and bridgework are classed as indirect restorations, so a laboratory technician is involved in the process to produce a custom-made, well-fitted restoration which is specific to each patient’s tooth. This means that normally indirect restorations generally require two or more visits. Please bear this in mind if you are short of time and are planning to have work done which could possibly involve the laboratory.
During the first visit, the dentist prepares the tooth and makes an impression of the area to be restored. The impression is sent to a dental laboratory, which creates the dental restoration and a provisional crown/bridge is fabricated. At the next appointment, the dentist cements the permanent restoration onto the prepared cavity and adjusts it as needed. In large cases where we are significantly altering the appearance or occlusion (bite) there will be additional stages of try-ins and provisional restorations.
