If you are curious about how your new porcelain dental crown is created, we would be happy to provide you with an in-depth review. Dr. Shahdad Arami, with the help of our team and partnerships, creates custom-made dental crowns in just four steps.
Initial preparation: Before we begin creating your dental crown, we need to ensure that your tooth is the ideal candidate. Dr. Shahdad Arami will examine the tooth to determine if it needs to be reshaped in order to accommodate your crown. If needed, our skilled dentist can reshape the tooth to make space or build it up so that it can support the dental crown.
Impressions: During this phase, we use advanced dental technology to take high-quality impressions of the tooth and surrounding dental structure. Our goal is to capture the unique size and shape of your teeth and smile so that we can use the impressions as a model for your permanent dental crown.
Creation of the crown: We then send these impressions to the experienced and talented dental technicians we partner with. These technicians create the permanent crown at the dental lab using high-quality porcelain material and send it to Northridge Dental Group when ready.
Final fitting: At your second visit, you get to try on your new dental crown and test its fit and feel. The crown is temporarily placed over the tooth, and we will make any tweaks as needed until you and the dentist approve the results. Finally, we will position the crown over the tooth and permanently cement it to your smile.
