The Dental Crowns Process
The crown placement procedure can vary from patient to patient. That’s because we use crown restorations as a component of several treatments. However, if we’re using a dental crown to repair a damaged or cosmetically flawed tooth, we can generally complete the process within two appointments at our Sudbury, MA dental office.
Step 1: Your Crowns Consultation
Your journey to a restored smile starts with an initial consultation with our team of expert dentists. During this appointment, we’ll meticulously clean your teeth, treating any underlying oral health problems as necessary.
We’ll also take detailed impressions of your teeth to help guide the customization of your dental crown. Our dentists may place a temporary crown at this time.
Step 2: Placing Your Personalized Crowns
After our dental specialists create your customized crowns, we’ll contact you to return to our Sudbury dental office for your placement procedure. The appointment will start with another deep cleaning to prepare your teeth. Our dental team will then carefully shape your enamel to fit within the edges of your crown.
Once we’ve created a smooth surface, we’ll use a dental-grade adhesive to bond the crown to your tooth. You’ll walk out of our office after just a short waiting period with a fully functional, stunning smile that you’ll be proud to share.
