Making dental crowns is a special yet often time-heavy process. We love educating our patients about dental topics, so we’ve assembled this information for you to assist you as you learn about how dental crowns are made. Please reach out to us if you have any extra inquiries about how dental crowns are fashioned.

The process of creating dental crowns starts in our office, where your dentist will make impressions and take measurements of your chompers using molds or imaging technology. Those measurements are sent to an oral lab where a lab technician will use the molds from your dentist to create another impression, which will be filled with strong, long-lasting chemicals that are heated to extremely high temps to be moldable. Once the substances have been set and cured within the mold, the mold is broken apart and the crown is then cleaned, ready to be sent back to our office, where the service began.

Dr. David Mortvedt would be thrilled to catch up with you at their Haymarket, Virginia, office soon; call 703-754-0727 to arrange your next appointment with the Haymarket Family & Cosmetic Dentistry team. If you have any further questions about dental crowns, please get in touch with us over the phone or in our office and we’ll do our best to teach you a little more.
