Dental crowns are a safe and effective solution if you experience any of the following scenarios:
The process to receive a dental crown takes two visits to the dentist’s office. Dr. Patel or Dr. Cruser will begin by examining the tooth in question before administering the appropriate sedation and/or anesthesia. This will ensure you are comfortable during the procedure.
Once they feel as if you are in a relaxed state, they will begin to clean out your tooth by removing the damaged or decayed areas. After thoroughly removing the debris, your tooth will be filled with composite resin to provide a protective seal. Next, they will file down the tooth and take a dental impression, which will be sent off to a dental lab for technicians to begin crafting your customized dental crown.
We will place a temporary crown over your weakened tooth in the meantime, but once your permanent restoration is ready, you will return to our office to have the temporary removed and the finalized one cemented into place.
