Dental crown

Information about dental crown

The dental crown makes it possible to replace the upper part of the tooth (the visible part). When the dental crown is fixed on a tooth that is still present, it is fixed by cementation directly on the tooth or on a pivot (inlay core, pinlay) when it is too dilapidated. When it is fixed on a dental implant it will be screwed in. The dental crown can be definitive or transient (when care on the gum or pulp is to be carried out and treatment is necessary). The placement of a dental crown can have several objectives, either for the restoration of a damaged tooth or for purely aesthetic reasons.

Placement of a dental crown

The fitting of a dental crown is divided into several phases, the completion time of which may vary depending on the place of manufacture of the dental crown and the additional care required.

Phase 1: Preparation of the tooth

The tooth is filed down to obtain a stump allowing to receive the future crown. Complementary acts such as caries treatment, devitalization of the tooth or heavy metal decontamination may be necessary. Dentists should try to keep teeth alive and in good condition. It is Anveli's policy, which has carried out several studies on the toxicity of devitalized teeth. An impression is taken either via the old technique (The patient bites into a mold) or by the technology of an intraoral scanner used in Anveli Dental clinics. The use of a scanner allows greater precision and comfort for the patient since the procedure does not last more than one minute. A provisional crown is placed in order so that the patient does not feel pain when the teeth are still alive.

Between the two stages, the work begins for the laboratory which manufactures the dental crowns. Crowns can be made by hand or by computer (Anveli Dental®) and a robot that cuts the dental crown.

Phase 2: Placement of a dental crown

The second stage of the placement of a dental crown takes place 4 to 5 days after the treatment of the natural tooth (more when the clinic does not have its own laboratory). During the tests, corrections may be performed in the mouth if the latter is minimal or in the laboratory if they are larger. After that, the dental crown is permanently fixed by cementation. The procedure may require several hours when the number of crowns is important. It is necessary to adjust each point contact in order to obtain a perfect occlusion.

Patients with bruxism (teeth grinding) may be required to wear a splint at night to prevent tearing of the natural teeth and the dental crown. Both phases of treatment are completed in one week thanks to the dental prosthesis laboratory at every Anveli Dental clinic.
