The Process of Getting a Dental Crown
The process of getting a dental crown begins with a consultation with one of our dentists. During your first visit, they will prepare your tooth structure and take an impression of the prepared tooth. They will then place a temporary crown on the tooth and send the impression to a dental laboratory to fabricate the crown. At your next visit, the dentist will try-in the crown to ensure a good fit and then cement it in place.
When the procedure is finished, the crown will blend seamlessly with your teeth and restore your all-white smile. It will also return the strength that you need for comfortable oral function.
