What to Expect Following a Dental Crown

Posted on 12/20/2016 by Dr. Michael Drone

After making the choice to get a dental crown, you will be preparing for the procedure to have it installed. You may be a little bit nervous and wonder what your healing process will be like. Here's some more information to help set your mind at ease.

Having a Dental Crown Installed

The installation procedure for a dental crown usually involves at least two visits to your dental care provider. The first time you come see us, we will take a look at the tooth to be sure that there is enough healthy tooth material to support a crown.

If so, we will also shape the tooth to prepare it to receive the dental crown. Before you leave, we will attach a temporary crown to help protect the tooth until you come back for your permanent dental crown.

On your second visit we will attach the dental crown to your shaped tooth. We use a specially formulated dental adhesive to adhere the crown to your tooth. By the time the anesthesia wears off, your new crown will be ready for use.

Keep in mind that it may take you a little bit of time to get used to the new crown. You are used to your tooth feeling and functioning a certain way, now you have to get used to it feeling and functioning differently. Over time, as you get used to it, the crown will eventually feel, look, and operate just like a normal tooth.

Contact Us If You Have Any Questions
We know that getting a dental crown can be a little bit daunting. We want to help you feel completely comfortable with the procedure, so please, if you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact our office today!
