The Process of Getting Dental Crowns

Consultation and Examination

The journey towards a radiant smile begins with a comprehensive consultation and examination. During this initial visit, our experienced dental team will assess your oral health, discuss your concerns and goals, and formulate a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs.

Tooth Preparation

Once a treatment plan is established, the tooth receiving the crown will be prepared to accommodate the restoration. This involves removing a small amount of enamel to create space for the crown. Impressions of the prepared tooth and surrounding teeth will then be taken to ensure a precise fit.

Crown Fabrication

With the impressions serving as a blueprint, our skilled technicians will meticulously craft your custom dental crown using high-quality materials. Whether porcelain, ceramic, metal, or a combination, rest assured that your crown will be crafted with precision and attention to detail.

Placement and Adjustment

Upon completion of the crown fabrication process, it will be time for placement. Your dentist will carefully position the crown over the prepared tooth, ensuring proper fit and alignment. Any necessary adjustments will be made to achieve optimal comfort and functionality.

Dental crowns can last anywhere from 5 to 15 years or more, depending on various factors such as oral hygiene practices, bite forces, and the material used. With proper care and regular dental check-ups, you can maximize the longevity of your dental crown.

Are dental crowns painful?

Getting dental crown typically doesn’t cause pain since your dentist will perform the procedure under local anesthesia to ensure your comfort. However, some patients may feel mild discomfort or sensitivity afterward, which you can manage with over-the-counter pain relievers.
