Once you have made a crown, it is important that you check your dentist’s visit. Furthermore, it is important that you take care of your teeth through a good oral hygiene. You can read more about good oral hygiene here.
How long does a crown hold?
The durability of the crown depends largely on how you take care of your teeth. A dental crown requires the same level of care and attention as your natural teeth. If you have good oral hygiene, go to the dentist’s office, do not rub teeth and keep a dental-friendly diet, it’s a high quality of crown that is expected to last 10-15 years.

What is the benefit of a crown?
The advantage of a tannkrone is that it is a sustainable solution. If the crown is handled properly, it is expected to last 10-15 years.
As with all treatment methods there are disadvantages. For a crown, the following can be mentioned:
It may take some time to get used to the crown’s functionality.
It’s an expensive solution.
You start with a consultation with your dentist discussing all treatment options. The first step in the treatment is to prepare the teeth where the crown is to be applied. This is done by cleaning the tooth, removing all lesions and shaping the tooth with a diamond drill (drill to grind the teeth). The whole session is done during local anesthesia. The shape of the tooth is tapered so that there is room for the crown can be attached.
When the teeth are prepared, a touch of your teeth is taken – either using conventional or digital printing technology. A conventional print is taken by means of a special print material in a pushbutton. The completed print is then sent to a dental laboratory where they use the impression to make a crown.
The color sample is either at the clinic or at the laboratory technician. It usually takes between 1-2 weeks for the technician to produce the crown. In the meantime, the dentist will put a temporary crown – usually a composite crown – to cover and protect your prepared tooth. On your next visit, the temporary crown is removed by etching the outer layer of the prepared tooth. This is done to give the tooth an uneven surface so that the cement has a good surface to glue. Your dentist puts the crown on the tooth to check function, color and aesthetics and edge adjustment. Once you and the dentist are satisfied with the result, the crown can be cemented in place.
Most dentists offer digital prints instead of the conventional ones. Then a digital image of the teeth is sent to a dental laboratory or to the dentist’s own milling machine. If the dentist has a milling machine, the treatment takes place during a visit. You can read more about digital prints here.
Crowns can be made in a variety of materials such as gold crown, metallic crown (MK crown) and whole crown crown. There are many different brands and types of porcelain crowns. Manufacturing costs vary with the material used – the better the quality, the higher the price.
Golds have for generations been considered to be the most durable filling material for teeth, and it is still today if the regulations are followed. The gold crown can be worn so it goes “holes” on the teeth or in the edges of the post. If so, the crown must be replaced.
Metallic crown (MK crown)
A ceramic crown is an alloy of precious metals and merged with porcelain. The precious metal is the innermost and the porcelain is the outer shell. The color of the crown fits your own dental nano. It is a possible solution, however, porcelain / metal bonding is the weak link, and may be the reason that the crown does not keep cosmetic under heavy load. If the porcelain is exposed to
significant wear, the metal may become visible.
Helmetamic crown (pure porcelain crown)
Crowns in pure porcelain have become more and more popular in dental care. This is due to the cosmetic properties of the porcelain and the bonding technique used for fixing the crown.
Most used in the teeth of the teeth, because they are slightly dense in the color and can give a little “dead” appearance in the
Procerakronor: The first porcelain crowns used for the front teeth. They greatly relieve the metallic crowns due to their cosmetic properties.
Most refers to the fact that the crown is made from a digital print and then ejected. Either, the laboratory will scan the print that the dentist has sent or scan the dentist himself with a digital scanner: The most used scanners are Cerec, Trios, iTero and Plan Scan.
E-max crowns: crowns made of a particularly strong porcelain under high pressure – either as a Cad-Cam block at the dentist or at a dental laboratory.
Empress Crown: A printed china crown.
Cerinate: A strong porcelain crown.
Feldspar is often used for scale phases because they can be made very thin.
A specially made steel chronicle used in childcare to keep the teeth in place instead of pulling out the damaged teeth. This crown is called Rockey Mountain.
A dental crown is a restoration that protects the remaining tooth that has been damaged, ruptured or destroyed. A crown strengthens your existing tooth so that both bite function and aesthetics are restored. Tooth crowns are also called hedges when a crown sits like a hat on your existing tooth and covers the surface of the tooth.
