Pinner Green Dental
The following are some of the most common reasons to have a crown fitted:
Our beautiful and long lasting crowns usually take 2 weeks to create at our trusted laboratory, however this process can be expedited in some cases where required. Therefore crowns require two appointments with the dentist.
At the first appointment, the tooth or teeth to be treated are numbed with local anaesthesia, which is used to block any sensations of discomfort. The tooth is then carefully shaped and any decay removed, following which a very advanced digital impression is taken to ensure a perfect fit for the crown. The tooth will then be fitted with a temporary crown to ensure comfort and stability of the prepared tooth.
At the next appointment, the temporary crown is carefully removed and the permanent crown gently placed over the tooth and tested for fit, comfort and aesthetics. Once any necessary alterations have been made, the crown is fitted with a high strength dental bonding agent, and you will leave our practice with a new smile.
