What is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a restoration that we can use to correct broken, damaged, heavily decayed, or misshapen teeth. Designed to cover the entire visible portion of your tooth, dental crowns get their name because they literally cap your enamel. Once placed, patients can enjoy a strengthened, more aesthetically pleasing smile. Dental crowns are also used to protect teeth after root canals, covering the more sensitive portion of the tooth.
The Dental Crown Process
The dental crown process is spaced out over two appointments. At the first one, we will treat the tooth before filing it down and taking the necessary impressions. These impressions are sent to the dental lab so the lab artisans can craft your dental crown. Since this process usually takes 2-3 weeks, we will provide you with a temporary crown in the meantime.
Once your permanent crown has arrived at our office, you’ll return for your second appointment. At this time, we will remove your temporary crown and cement your permanent one in place. After checking your bite and ensuring you are happy with the results, we’ll review how to take care of your new smile, and you’ll be set to go home!
