What is the dental crown process?

Before the treatment begins, a local anesthetic is used to numb the teeth and gums. You should feel very little to no pain or discomfort, although you may feel some pressure on your tooth. Next, the tooth is carefully reshaped, and impressions are taken. A temporary crown is placed, and the impressions of the tooth are used to create a custom, permanent crown. Once we receive your crown from the lab, a follow-up appointment will be scheduled to remove the temporary crown, place the permanent one, and make any necessary modifications to ensure that it looks and feels great.

Is a dental crown better than a bridge or a veneer?

Dental crowns are not better or worse than dental bridges or veneers, they are often just used for different reasons. Dental bridges work well for replacing missing teeth, but if a patient needs a single tooth restored, dental crowns are often a better choice, since they don’t require any other teeth to be modified. Veneers are a great option for patients who want to repair or enhance a front tooth, but they are more of a financial investment. Dental crowns are a cost-effective, minimally invasive restorative treatment option.
