If you’re about to restore the health, strength, and function of your tooth with a dental crown, then our dentist, Dr. Kevin Bowcutt, would like to help you feel prepared in the dental chair. The more you know about the treatment, the more comfortable and prepared you might be. So, he is happy to tell you all about the steps involved, which are:
Step No. 1: Your dentist will numb your mouth so you are comfortable during the appointment. Then, he will trim the tooth enamel to make room for the dental crown.
Step No. 2: When the tooth is the right shape and size, your dentist will take impressions (which are like molds) of your smile and will send them to dental lab technicians. They will craft your customized dental crown. While you wait for your crown to be made, your dentist will cover your tooth with a temporary crown so you can use it.
Step No. 3: After the crown is made and sent to our office, you will come in for a second appointment. There, your dentist will cement the crown over your tooth.
