Dental crowns are strong, reliable, functional, and even beautiful tooth caps that restore the health, function, and beauty of your tooth. These restorations are beneficial when you have a weak, worn-down, severely decayed, and even discolored tooth. If you’re about to restore your tooth with this beneficial restoration, you can expect a simple and successful appointment.
When you start treatment, Dr. Dwight Price will examine the tooth and take a series of X-rays. This will help him determine the health of your smile. When you’re ready, he will numb the soon-to-be-treated tooth and the surrounding area. This will help you avoid feeling any pain during your appointment.
Then, he will remove the tooth enamel from the tooth to make room for the crown. When enough is removed, he will make an impression of the tooth and will send that impression to a dental lab. Your crown will be custom made at the dental lab. While you wait for your new restoration, Dr. Dwight Price will cover and protect your tooth with a temporary crown.
Finally, when your dental crown is ready, the technicians will send us the restoration and you will come back to Price Dental Associates to get it placed. During this appointment, your dentist will check the fit and appearance of the cap to make sure it is right for your smile. Then, he will cement it over your tooth.
