Very badly damaged teeth often cannot be restored by fillings. A dental crown becomes necessary. Dental crowns may be prepared in numerous ways. Modern techniques make it possible today to produce crowns without unsightly “black” metal edges.
The dental technician produces the dental crowns with the highest precision using a stereomicroscope. They are indistinguishable from own natural teeth in shape, colour and contour.
It is also possible to manufacture dental crowns and inlays with computer assistance. To this end, conventional impressions are no longer necessary. The prepared teeth are scanned using a special camera. In a complex process, the restorations are made using computer control. This saves a lot of intermediate steps involving manual skills and is therefore more cost effective.
