Dental Crown Costs in Palma
You will typically need to factor in two visits to the dentist. During the first visit the dentist will give you a thorough examination to confirm you do need a crown. The options regarding the material you want are presented to you. There are pros and cons to them all and your dentist will discuss these so you can make an informed choice. However, ultimately this may be affected by your budget, and where in the mouth the crown is to be placed as some materials are more suitable than others for certain areas.
For instance, PFM (porcelain-fused-to-metal) crowns are strong, but the metal starts to show through the porcelain as they age, giving your tooth a grey cast; porcelain is natural-looking, and hard-wearing but can fracture and zirconia is very hard-wearing, but is one of the most expensive options.
After you have decided on your material, your dentist will begin to prepare the tooth by filing it down so that the crown fits snugly over the tooth. Impressions of your mouth are then taken and sent to a laboratory. The crown will be made to fit your mouth and sent to your dentist who will fit the crown to your tooth. Meanwhile, the dentist will fit a temporary crown over your tooth.
Once your dentist has received your new crown from the lab, you can make an appointment to get it fitted. The dentist will fit it on the tooth and make any minor adjustments before the tooth is bonded to the tooth with a light-activated adhesive.
In some circumstances you may be able to get the crown procedure carried out in just one day, including tooth preparation, manufacture of crown and fitting. If your dental office has CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacture) technology the design and milling of the crown takes place at your dentist’s office and is carried out, essentially, by a computer.
