TOOTH PREPARATION & CROWN SHELL SELECTION

 

 

  • Prepare the tooth using standard preparation techniques.

  • Select the appropriate DirectCrown Natural 1™ crown shell that passively fits over the prepared tooth.

  • Try in the Natural 1 crown shell by placing it over the prepared site and adjusting the buccal/lingual walls as necessary. Verify that the patient can close into centric occlusion by having them close gently on the Natural 1 crown shell.


PROCEED TO EITHER THE ACRYLIC INSTRUCTIONS (below) OR BIS-ACRYL INSTRUCTIONS

 

 

DIRECTIONS USING ACRYLIC

PREP SHELL

  • Air abrade or roughen the inside of the DirectCrown Natural 1™ crown shell.


MIX & FILL

 

  • Follow acrylic manufacturer’s instructions for use.

  • Fill the selected crown shell with the mixed resin.

 

FIT

 

  • Seat the filled crown shell over the tooth preparation and have the patient gently bite down into proper occlusion.

  • Using an explorer (or other instrument), remove the excess material from the margins. Allow the temporary crown to remain in the patient’s mouth until the material begins to set but prior to complete set so that “lock on” does not occur.

  • Remove the crown shell from the tooth preparation and replace it back into the mouth (repeat this process several times during acrylic set time).


TRIM & POLISH

 

  • Remove the fitted crown shell from the tooth preparation. Mark the margins with a pencil and trim as necessary.

  • Polish the crown with polishing instruments.


SEAT

  • Cement the Natural 1 crown into place using a conventional, non-eugenol crown and bridge cement.
