At the clinic, our dentist conducts a meticulous cleaning and preparation process for the designated tooth that will receive the crown. This ensures an optimal foundation for the subsequent steps.
After the preliminary planning, the process moves into the digital sphere. Using cutting- edge dental technology, a precise and comprehensive 3D picture of your tooth is obtained. This digital version functions as the guide for the subsequent phases.
Utilizing specialized software, the dental team engages in virtual crown design. This step involves addressing missing portions of the tooth or designing an entirely new crown. The digital design serves as a guide for the subsequent manufacturing steps.
The digital design is seamlessly transmitted to a cutting-edge milling machine, incorporating state-of-the-art computer-aided manufacturing technology. This machine transforms the virtual design into a tangible crown with remarkable precision.
Under the watchful eye of skilled professionals, the milling machine crafts the crown using high-quality materials such as ceramic or zirconia. This ensures not only durability but also an aesthetically pleasing result.
The experienced dental team at Hopkins Family Dentistry takes charge of the cementing process. This crucial step ensures the secure placement of the crafted crown, contributing to its longevity and stability.
