Every dentist at some point in their career goes through the phase of wanting a protocol to follow to do certain procedures. Dentistry however like many other tasks is a mix of science and art and no one solution fits every situation. Crown preps can be a frustrating procedure when it comes to decision making. 

This lecture will outline the various aspects of crown prep basics as well as the decision making process on how to arrive at each decision point. 

This lecture will outline: 

  • Bonded vs cemented crowns and when its best to do each type 
  • Bur selection and why having a fixed set of burs is ideal vs trying to use whatever is in the draw 
  • Who gets final say in what style of crown should be done 
  • How much does the remaining tooth structure matter for what style of prep you do 
  • What prep to do and when 
  • When should you use vertiprep or the vertical preparation technique 
  • Basic bonding and cementing protocol
