The first visit involves reshaping the tooth and taking impressions to create the crown. Typically a portion of your tooth will have to be removed for the crown to fit properly. After your tooth is reshaped, a special material is used to create an impression of it. This impression will be sent our dental laboratory to be made into a permanent crown. Before sending you home, we will provide you with a temporary crown to cover your tooth in between visits.
When you return to have the permanent crown seated, we will remove the temporary crown and fit the new permanent one. Before cementing the permanent crown in place, we will ensure that it fits comfortably and matches the color of your teeth.
