Procedure for crowns
Dental Assessment: in the first instance, your dentist will assess your mouth, gums and teeth. An x-ray may be taken to help with the prognosis. This stage plays an integral part of the treatment, as there are many complications that can occur in our mouths, and it’s important to identify the root cause.
Tooth Preparation: when having crowns your tooth will need to be prepared. Your dentist will use a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area, and will then carefully file away parts of the tooth. An impression is then taken of the tooth, and sent to a dental laboratory to be made. A temporary crown will be fitted to protect your tooth until your final crown is back from the lab.
Fit: the fit is the shorter of the two appointments. Your temporary crown will be removed and the new crown will then be placed on top. Your dentist will make any necessary adjustments before finally bonding the crown in place (bite adjustment etc).
