The first stage
The first stage involves recoloring the adjacent teeth by removing a portion of the enamel to make room for the crown to fit over.

The dentist takes an impression of the teeth, to send it to the laboratory, who in turn designs the tooth from zircon or porcelain, taking into account the matching of the color and shape of the crown with the teeth that the patient has.
