4 Easy Steps to a New Dental Crown

4 Easy Steps to a New Dental Crown

We know that dental crowns have a bad reputation in our world. Perhaps they’re not as sinister as root canals, but many patients fear receiving a crown, nonetheless. However, the dental crown treatment is not nearly as painful or torturous as many of our patients believe. In fact, it only requires one or two visits and can be completed in these following steps:

1. We’ll numb your tooth and tissues to ensure that you don’t feel any pain during the procedure. Then we’ll shape the biting surface and the sides of the tooth so that the crown has room for placement. 

2. We take an impression of your tooth and jaw to ensure that we have a comprehensive understanding of your individual bite. We may need to build up your tooth to hold the crown if your tooth is too small or has too much decay.

3. We shape your tooth and match the shade of your teeth. Depending on your case, we may give you a temporary crown for a few days while your permanent crown is crafted by our laboratory. 

4. After we check your permanent crown for fit and color, we numb your mouth again, remove the temporary crown, and cement the new crown on your tooth. We’ll examine your bite and make necessary adjustments to ensure that your crown is ready for action in the real world.

Dental crowns are one of the most common procedures in the country, and our team is experienced and able to provide you with the best dental crown treatment in the area.
