The Steps to Expect With Dental Crown Treatment

Posted .

Dental crowns in New York, New York, are beneficial products that can restore your oral health and give you the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. However, sometimes the treatment can be a bit frightening if you’re not sure what to expect, which is why our Professional Dental & Implant Center team is happy to help you! We believe that if you know what to expect during treatment, you will feel more comfortable and prepared in the dental chair. So, when you come into our office for a dental crown, you can expect the following steps:

-Step 1: First, your dentist will need to prepare the tooth that is receiving the dental crown. To get started, they will numb your tooth and surrounding tissues with a local anesthetic. Then, they will trim the outer layer of your tooth to make room for the crown.

-Step 2: Once your tooth is the correct size and shape, your dentist will make impressions of that tooth and will send the impressions to a dental lab where your crown will be created. As the technicians make your restoration, you will be given a temporary crown to wear until your permanent crown is ready.

-Step 3: When your new crown is done, you will come back to our office to get it placed. Your dentist will first check the fit and appearance of the crown and if it exceeds expectations, they will permanently cement it into place.
