What Is a Tooth Crown?
A dental crown is a type of permanent dental restoration that involves placing a prosthetic tooth (a “cap”) over an existing tooth. Other types of dental restorations include bridges and implants. Unlike dental crowns, which require the presence of an existing tooth, bridges and implants can both be used to replace missing teeth.
The Dental Crowning Process
If we determine that you need a dental crown, we’ll begin by filing down the damaged tooth and taking an impression, which we’ll send to a lab. Because it can take time for the lab to fabricate your permanent crown, we’ll likely install a temporary crown in the meantime. Then, once the lab finishes making your permanent crown, we’ll remove the temporary one and install the permanent one using dental cement.
