Traditional Dental Crown Procedure
After we have made an impression of your tooth, it will then be prepared to receive the crown. During preparation we remove any fillings or decay present in the tooth and shape it to accept the crown. After preparation, a temporary crown is placed on your tooth and secured. The temporary crown will act exactly as your normal tooth would until your next appointment. At your next appointment, we will replace the temporary crown with the permanent crown using a long-lasting adhesive.
For those who don’t want to make two trips to see us, we offer same-day crowns.
