With Empress Crowns


If you have a badly decayed or cracked tooth, a porcelain-metal crown may be the perfect solution. The inside layer is made of a strong metal for support of the tooth-like porcelain that provides a natural appearance.

If the tooth is left untreated, it may lead to extensive infection and eventually tooth loss.
Your dentist will take an impression that will serve as the mold for the temporary and the actual crown.
Next, the dentist prepare the tooth by first removing any decay. After that, the outer area of the tooth will be removed , allowing room to attach the crown on top of the tooth while maintaining about the same bite.
Another impression will be taken and sent to the dental lab for the crown fabrication.
Once the crown has been fitted adequately, the dentist will cement it to the prepared tooth. With proper care, the crown will provide many years of service.
