Dental crowns provide dual benefits for patients. They offer essential protection for teeth weakened by cavities and can restore the natural, healthy look of damaged or decayed teeth.
Getting a crown is an easy process that your dentist will complete within two dental visits. The first visit entails all the steps necessary to prepare and fashion the crown. To make sure that your new crown perfectly fits your tooth, your dentist may create an impression of the tooth and surrounding area. This model is then used as a guide for the creation of the crown. Once the crown fabrication is complete, you can return to your dentist for your second and final visit. During this appointment, your permanent crown will be cemented to your tooth and evaluated to guarantee its fit and function.
