3 Different Ways That Dental Crowns Are Made

Posted in Dental Crowns

Posted on October, 16 2020 by G Marlin

There are three different ways to manufacture a dental crown. They can be milled on a machine according to stock images, fabricated in a commercial laboratory, or handcrafted to each patient’s custom aesthetics by an in-house dental technician. The latter is how we do it at Prosthetic Dentistry of Washington, D.C. because we strive for perfection.

In the video below, top-rated prosthodontist Dr. Gerald Marlin explains the limitations of milled and commercial crowns. These restorations often fall short of providing the proper fit and aesthetics we want our patients to enjoy. We believe that you deserve exceptional results that last.
