Do you have an upcoming appointment for dental crown treatment? If so, you’re on your way toward the strong, healthy, and beautiful smile you desire. To help you get ready for your appointment, Dr. William G. Kaylakie and our dental team are happy to share the treatment details with you.
When you visit our warm and comfortable office, your dentist will examine your smile and take a series of X-rays. This will help the doctor determine the condition of your tooth and oral health. When you’re ready, he will numb the tooth with a local anesthetic, which will help you feel comfortable during your appointment.
Then, he will use a special tool to remove the majority of the tooth enamel, which will make room for the restoration. When the tooth is the right size, he will gather the needed information to send to a dental lab. The lab is where your crown will be custom-made for your smile. While you wait for your new cap, Dr. Kaylakie will shield your tooth with a temporary crown.
Finally, when your new restoration is ready, you will come back to our office to get it placed. During this visit, your dentist will check the color, fit, and appearance of the crown to make sure it is a good fit. Then, he will cement it over your abutment.
