If you have a weak and unattractive tooth, a dental crown is the perfect restoration for your smile! We encourage you to call our office today and schedule an appointment with our dentist if you are interested in this beneficial restoration. If you do decide to repair your smile with a dental crown, we ask that you expect two visits to our office. Your visits will involve:

First visit
Your dentist will examine your smile and decide if this is the best choice for your oral health. If it is, your dentist will prepare your tooth for the crown. The tooth preparation will involve your dentist trimming the outer layer of your tooth to make room for the crown. Then, he will make impressions of your tooth and will send those impressions to the dental lab where your crown will be created. While you wait for your crown, your dentist will give you a temporary crown to wear over your tooth.

Second visit
Once the crown is ready, your dentist will check the fit, size, and color of your crown and will cement it into place if everything is perfect.
