What can you expect from dental crown treatment?
Any treatment starts with a detailed consultation to assess the suitability of a crown to discuss the treatment with you. We can offer advice about the suitable crown material and the treatment process and answer any queries you may have.
Preparation time will depend on the damage to the tooth because your tooth may need to be reshaped to fit the cap over it. We will then take a digital scan of the tooth so a custom-made crown can be constructed.
The digital scan will be sent to a special laboratory where your crown will designed and milled using Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) processes. We provide a temporary crown to protect the tooth whilst this is being done. The crown will then be fitted to the tooth to restore function and form. The treatment generally takes around two appointments to complete.
