Dental Crowns Treatment Process

Tooth Preparation

The dental crown treatment process can be completed in at least two visits. During your first visit, Dr. Russo will take an X-ray of the affected tooth and jawbone to check for signs of decay, risk of infection, or other damage. Depending on your condition, the dentist may recommend root canal therapy before placing a crown on your tooth. Your dentist will then shape the tooth to create room for the crown to be bonded.

After shaping the tooth, impressions of the tooth are taken and sent to a dental lab to fabricate the crown. Meanwhile, our Brookfield dentist will place a temporary crown over the prepared tooth as you wait for the permanent crown to be ready. This can take about two to three weeks.

Crown Placement

The second appointment entails the placement of your new, permanent crown. Dr. Russo will replace the temporary crown with the permanent one. The color and fit of your permanent crown are checked to ensure they are perfect. Then a local anesthetic will be used to numb the tooth before bonding the crown.
