Technique to remove and repair a crown: thoughts?

Last Updated August 16, 2017

I like the convenience of cement-retained implant crowns and bridges and have not had many problems with excess cement. But, on those occasions where I have to remove and repair a crown, it can be problematic. I was wondering if I requested more die relief along the axial walls and then had a thicker layer of cement, would this be easier to break the seal and remove the crown? I would prefer not to have to cut off the crown. Have any of you tried this? Any other ideas?
