It typically takes a dentist two separate appointments to make and place a new dental crown for a patient.
The first appointment involves:
1) Preparing (shaping) the tooth:
2) Taking an impression of the prepared tooth and placing a temporary crown.
Once your dentist has completed shaping your tooth, they will need to make a copy of it by way of taking a dental impression.
The second appointment involves:
– Removing the temporary crown
– Evaluating the fit and appearance of the crown
– Cementing the crown
Single tooth can be crowned to reinforce the tooth after extensive cavities, endodontic treatment or certain fracture of the crown.
When indicated, a dental bridge could help replace missing teeth.
