Steps to Get a Dental Crown
You will need two visits to get a dental crown. During the first visit, we take an impression of the tooth we are treating and send it to the lab that will build your new crown. At this time, we will also perform other treatments if needed, including a root canal. If there is decay, our dentist will remove it and fill the tooth. Sometimes you will go home with a temporary crown.
Once the crown is ready, you will come back, and our dentist will place and set the permanent crown with the material selected at the first appointment. You must care for the new crown just as you do the rest of your teeth.
