Dental crown procedure
The procedure for installing a dental crown in most cases takes two separate visits to the dentist. The dentist will examine the tooth on the first appointment, this visit normally entails taking x-rays. If there is any form of extensive decay or risk of infection to the tooth, the dentists will have to treat it first before commencing with a dental crown.
During the first appointment, this is when the tooth and the gum tissue is anesthetized before the process begins. The tooth is then filed down mostly along the chewing surface so that the crown can fit.
After the tooth has been filled to the proper shape, the dentist will take an impression of it and the surrounding. The impression is sent to a dental lab so that the permanent crown can be created. This protects the tooth until the final crown is ready for permanent placement.
A patient will go for the second and final visit once the permanent crown has been designed. The temporary crown will be removed on the second visit. The dentist will position and fasten this new crown in position with a special adhesive.
