Crowns help strengthen and protect damaged teeth by covering the tooth. It can help reinforce damaged teeth, repair teeth with old fillings, and encasing & anchoring dental implants and bridges.
How Dental Crowns Are Placed
The dental crown procedure consists of 4 steps:
- Re-shaping the tooth to make room for the crown
- Making an impression of the tooth and surrounding teeth
- Applying a temporary acrylic crown for 1-2 weeks until the permanent is ready
- Replace the temporary crown with the permanent
Crowns are very durable and will often last around forty years.
