The Dental Crown Procedure Explained
The dental crown procedure is a simple two-step process at Jaffe Dental Group. During your initial appointment, we take molds (impressions) of your tooth, which are crucial for crafting a custom crown that fits perfectly. To safeguard your tooth while your personalized crown is being created, we provide a temporary crown that will remain in place for approximately two weeks.
In this phase, your dentist will carefully prepare your tooth by shaping its surface to ensure an ideal fit for the crown. Once the preparation is complete, we securely place your temporary crown using temporary cement and ensure that your bite alignment is correct.
During your second appointment, we remove the temporary crown, clean your tooth, and gently attach your new crown. This process ensures that both spacing and bite are precisely maintained. We aim to provide you with a seamless and comfortable experience throughout the dental crown procedure.
