Reasons for Choosing a Dental Crown:
The Dental Crown Procedure
Getting a crown is a relatively simple procedure with several benefits to enjoy. When you come in to get your procedure done, you will first be given a local anesthetic to keep you comfortable. During this visit, the tooth will be cleaned and any decay will be removed. We will then shape your tooth to fit a crown and take an impression of your teeth. The impression will be sent to the lab where a custom fit crown is made just for you. We will fabricate a temporary crown for your tooth while you are waiting for your permanent crown to be finished. This will be ready in several weeks and you will return so we can make final adjustments and cement the crown in place.
After your appointment, we'll encourage you to follow up with us regularly. While proper daily oral hygiene is essential, you'll also need regular dental care to ensure that you receive the optimal life expectancy of your new crown.
