The crown procedure at Smile Design Dental Center in O'Fallon is relatively simple.
First, we will anesthetize the problem tooth area. Once completely numb, the tooth is filed down so that the crown fits appropriately. Then, we will take an impression of the tooth to use in the construction of the crown.
The impressions are sent away to a dental laboratory to create your crown; meanwhile, we apply a sturdy temporary crown over the problem tooth while your customary crown is manufactured. Once your customary crown is ready, you will come back to Smile Design Dental Center and the crown will be applied. Now you have a bright, healthy-looking new tooth!
Crown placement can offer several benefits:
- Long term durability
- Protection from further decay, infection, and cracking
- Improved chewing and talking
- An improved, natural and healthier smile
