The first step of the dental crown procedure is to examine the affected tooth, its root, and the surrounding teeth. If the tooth is deemed healthy enough to support a crown, it will be shaped to fit the crown properly. Impressions will be taken and sent to our in-house lab to create your customized crown. While your permanent crown is being made, we will place a temporary crown to protect the tooth. After completion, we will replace the temporary crown with the permanent crown.
