WHAT PROCEDURES ARE NEEDED FOR DENTAL CROWNS?
Dental crowns typically take two visits. One visit to prepare the tooth, take a mould and to make a temporary crown and a second visit to seat or bond the crown to the tooth. It takes laboratory time to make each crown by hand and during the few weeks between appointments, you will wear a temporary or provisional acrylic crown. Crowns can be made in one day by machine but the result isn’t the same as if it were made by skilled hands in the laboratory. Keep in mind that if you need multiple crowns, the procedure is more complicated and may require more visits.
