How Dental Crowns are Made

Posted .

Developing dental crowns is a cool yet often time-intensive service. We love teaching our patients about dental topics, so we’ve organized this info for you to support you as you find out more about how dental crowns are formed. Please give us a call if you have any additional questions about how dental crowns are fashioned.

The service of forming dental crowns starts in our office, where your dentist will make impressions and take measurements of your teeth using dental molds or other impression technology. Those measurements are sent to a dental lab where a technician will use the molds from your dentist to form another impression, which will be filled with durable, long-lasting chemicals that are heated to high temps to be moldable. Once the substances have been set and cured within the second mold, the mold is broken apart and the crown is removed, ready to be sent to our office, where the process initiated.

Dr. Jennifer Ortega would be thrilled to see you at their Winter Park, Florida, practice soon; ring 407-645-3636 to plan your next appointment with the Ortega Dental Winter Park team. If you have any further questions about dental crowns, please contact us over the phone or in our office and we’ll do our best to answer your questions.
