What’s involved in getting a crown?
Basically, it’s a two-visit procedure. The first visit goes for about 90 minutes. We have to make sure the structure is solid. We trim the tooth and reduce it a little bit, take impressions and we send it to the lab. They ask for usually about two weeks for them to make the crown. In that time we put a temporary crown, it is a softer material, it’s just basically there to protect the tooth, stop the gums from growing over the margin. And the second visit’s about a 30-minute procedure as well. We take the template off, try the crown if it fits we cement it or bond it as needed.
