Crown treatment duration depends on the dental condition as well as the number of teeth the patients wish to restore. At Nhan Tam Dental Clinic, this process tends to last from 3 - 5 days with 2 appointments:

  • 1st visit: Dental health examination and consultation, then proceed to trim the teeth and get the impression to create the crowns. If dental diseases are detected, they have to be treated first.
  • 2nd visit: The crowns will be temporarily placed on the trimmed teeth. If everything is properly fitted, the doctor will secure it on to the teeth and complete the crown treatment.

Currently, there are many types of dental crowns, the most stand-out choices are metal crowns and all porcelain crowns (non-metal crowns)

Metal crowns: is a type of crown with 2 components, the inner metal structure, and the outer porcelain layers. When performed, the technician will first cast a layer of metal that fitted with the trimmed teeth. The material can be titanium or titanium alloy (Nickel, Chrome, Titanium, etc.)
