Often crowns are used in conjunction with other dental procedures. Crowns are typically used to:
During the first visit, your dentist will anesthetize the tooth that will receive the crown as well as the surrounding gum tissue. The tooth will then be filed down or built-up to make room for crown placement. Then your dentist will take a mold of your teeth, which will be sent to a lab specializing in crown production. Before you’re sent home, you’ll also be outfitted with a temporary crown that should last until your next appointment.
At the second appointment, the crown received from the lab will be fitted into place and permanently cemented onto the remaining tooth surface. With good oral hygiene and regular dental checkups, this crown can last up to 15 years before needing to be repaired or replaced.
Crowns come in four distinctive material types: all metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, all-resin or all-ceramic.
