What Is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a covering that fits over a damaged or unattractive tooth. It covers the entire portion of a tooth that is available above the gumline. Crowns can be constructed out of various materials, including different kinds of metals, porcelain, and porcelain fused to metal.

The Process of Getting a Dental Crown

If you do not opt for a one-visit restoration, crowning your tooth will likely take two or three visits. At the initial visit, we prepare the tooth to receive its new crown. We do so by shaping it to fit inside its new covering.

After we finish preparing the tooth, we take some impressions of it, either digitally or with reliable, putty-like impression materials. We send the impressions, along with extensive notes, to a dental laboratory. The technicians there pay great attention to detail as they fabricate each restoration.

Before your first appointment in the crown process ends, we will attach a temporary crown to your tooth to protect it until the permanent crown is ready. At the second visit, our team will verify your crown’s fit before we attach it to your tooth. Once your crown is in place, your treated tooth will once again provide you with reliable function.

If you get a one-visit restoration, we can make your crown right here in our office. There will be no need for you to wear a temporary restoration or attend multiple appointments.
