Treatment with Dental Crowns
The tooth receiving the dental crown will be prepared by removing a small part of the tooth structure. This ensures that a foundation is made for the crown. You will be provided with a temporary dental crown while the custom permanent restoration is being made. The permanent restoration will be secured and polished when finished.
How long do dental crowns last?
With the right dental care, dental crowns can last up to 30 years.
How do I care for my temporary dental crown?
A temporary crown will be put in place before the permanent restoration is ready. Avoid sticky and chewy foods that can pull at the crown. When flossing, slide the flossing material out rather than up between teeth. Minimize using the side of your mouth with the temporary crown.
Do dental crowns hurt?
The tooth or teeth receiving the dental crowns is numbed during the procedure for your comfort. You may feel tooth sensitivity after the procedure, but pain is minimal and shouldn’t last long.
