A dental crown is a restoration that acts as a cap over your tooth, completely surrounding a fractured or otherwise damaged tooth to avoid an extraction.
Dental Crown Procedure Timeline
A crown is placed over a couple of appointments at our dentist office in Mountainside, NJ. In your first sitting, Dr. Robert Kudla Sr. or Jr. will remove some material from the tooth so that your new crown will fit snugly and be sealed tight. He will also make a digital impression of your tooth so the lab may create a restoration that matches your natural tooth as closely as possible.
Your second appointment will be scheduled as soon as your permanent crown is ready – your digital impression should cut this turn-around time significantly as the 3-D scan is sent directly to the lab. Your dentist will check the crown to ensure it is correct and then will cement it into place.
Finally, your dentist will make any adjustments necessary so that it fits and does not interfere with your teeth' alignment. Your restoration will, with proper care, last for many years.
