FOUR IN ONE VIDEO: CROWN PREP, CROWN SEAT AND ABUTMENT PLACEMENT AND IMPLANT CROWN SEAT
This video shows the whole crown procedure as well as the last steps of an implant. This is the same mouth as the video for the implant healing cap video!
For the crown prep, my dad, @tomleedds
tomleedds , removed decay as well as shaped the tooth. After shaping, he refined and smoothed the margins of the tooth with a super fine diamond bur. He checked the occlusion of the tooth and adjusted accordingly to account for the thickness of the porcelain ceramic metal crown; ensuring that the crown would fit without obstructing the patient’s natural bite.
After preparing the tooth for a crown, he removed the healing cap to replace it with an abutment. Before finally screwing the abutment into the implant screw, my dad adjusts the abutment to customize it to the patient’s bite (similar to that of the crown prep). Once both teeth are prepped, I swabbed both the tooth and abutment with impression optimizer and took an impression for the lab. The lab usually takes up to ten business days to fabricate the crowns... The next visit we used Rely Luting Cement, allowed it to set and BOOM! Two beautiful teeth.
