Dental Crown Procedure
Our dental crown procedure is simple and straightforward and includes two separate visits to our clinic.
- On the first visit, we’ll examine your tooth to check if it can support the crown via X-rays.
- Next, we’ll fill the tooth to the proper shape and take an impression. This impression is then sent to the dental lab, wherein, they will fabricate a new dental crown, while a temporary dental cap/crown is placed instead to protect that specific area.
- On the second visit, we will remove the temporary tooth/teeth crown and cement the permanent crown in its place.
Caring For Your Crowns
With proper care, a good quality crown could last up to eight years or longer. It is very important to floss in the area of the crown to avoid excess plaque or collection of debris around the restoration. It is possible to get decay under crowns and hence frequent X-rays are necessary to assess the health of the crown.
Certain behaviors such as jaw clenching or bruxism (teeth grinding) significantly shorten the life of a crown. Moreover, eating brittle foods, ice or hard candy can compromise the adhesion of the crown or even damage the crown.
