What Is the Dental Crown Procedure?
When you get a crown, our dentist will make an impression of your teeth for the dental lab making the crown. He or she will shape your tooth so there is room for the crown to fit over it, and then give you a temporary crown to wear. Once the crown comes back from the lab, our dentist makes sure it fits correctly before scenting it onto your tooth.
