What to Expect With Dental Crown Treatment

Posted .

Are you about to improve your oral health with a dental crown in Lithonia, Georgia? If so, our Stewart Family Dentistry team is happy to help you have a successful appointment by telling you what to expect with dental crown treatment! We believe that if you know what to expect during your appointment, you will feel more prepared and confident in the dental chair. So, when you come into our office, you can expect the following steps:

-Step 1: First, your dentist will prepare your tooth for the crown. In order to do so, they will numb your tooth and surrounding tissues with a local anesthetic. Then, they will trim the surface of the tooth to make room for the crown.

-Step 2: Your dentist will then take impressions of your tooth once it’s the right size and shape. Next, the impressions will be sent to the dental lab where your crown will be created. As you wait, you will be given a temporary crown.

-Step 3: When your permanent crown is ready, you will come back into our office to get it placed. When you are in the dental chair, your dentist will check the size, shape, and color of the new crown to make sure it exceeds expectations. If it’s perfect for your smile, they will permanently cement it into place.
