How 3/4 Crowns Can Improve Your Smile
Roderick A. Garcia DMD an Albuquerque 3 best rated Cosmetic Dentists, is a Cosmetic and Family Dentist with over 36 years of dental experience.
Among the many dental procedures Dr. Garcia provides, 3/4 Crowns is one of them.
3/4 Crowns are crowns that don't require all the tooth structure to be reduced and can be done in the front or back of the mouth.
3/4 Crowns are utilized when a full crown is not necessary and yet the majority of the tooth needs to be protected.
3/4 Crowns are very cosmetic and in most cases last as long as full crowns.
The procedure involves preparing the tooth, taking an impression for the dental lab, selecting a shade, and making a temporary 3/4 crown to cover the prepared tooth.
The placement of the permanent 3/4 Crown is 7-10 days later.
The dental materials used is the same as for a full crown, Porcelain fused to ceramic, solid ceramic, porcelain fused to metal, or solid metal (gold and silver).
