What is the procedure?
Receiving a crown takes two visits to your dentist. During the first visit, your dentist will usually take X-rays of the tooth and the surrounding areas including the roots, gums, and bone. Next, your dentist will numb the tooth and gums and remove any unhealthy tooth structure to make room for the crown. Then paste or putty will be used to make an impression of the tooth and surrounding area. These impressions will be sent to a dental lab where the crown is constructed. Your dentist will then put a temporary crown in until the real crown is ready for placement.
During your second visit, you will receive the permanent crown. Here, your tooth will be numbed and the crown will be cemented into place.
Crowns are the best way to protect, restore, and help your teeth cosmetically. Everyone dreams of having a confident and shining smile so contact your APEX dentist for more information on how a crowns can be of aid to you.
