What Are Cosmetic Crowns?
What to Expect During a Dental Crowns Procedure
Most crowns require two appointments. During the first appointment, we’ll prepare your tooth to receive a crown. This involves removing any tooth decay or cracks and creating new architecture to the exterior portion of the tooth so that a crown will have good retention and fit comfortably. A digital scan of the tooth is taken and sent to the lab that will create a hand crafted crown designed specifically for the patient. We will then place a temporary crown to protect the patient’s tooth until the permanent crown can be placed in a week or so.
At the second appointment, we’ll remove the temporary crown and clean the tooth with antibacterial solution. The permanent crown is then bonded with special dental adhesives and polished for a smooth comfortable fit.
