What to Expect When Getting a Dental Crown

Slide 2:

If you’re about to get your first dental crown, you may be wondering what to expect during and after the procedure. Here are some things for you to know ahead of time.   About Dental Crowns   There are a few different reasons why your dentist may have decided to give you a crown. One of your teeth may be weak and need help holding itself together, or you may have discoloration or other cosmetic reasons. Many crowns can be used, including ceramic, porcelain, resin and stainless steel. For cosmetic reasons, porcelain or ceramic are usually used.

Slide 3:

The Procedure   You may have to do two separate visits to get your crown installed. The first appointment will involve filing the tooth to prepare it for the crown, or sometimes filling it to make it large enough to support the crown. You will then get a mold taken of your tooth to make the crown. The second visit, after the crown has been made, involves fitting the crown and making adjustments.

Slide 4:

After the Procedure   It may take some time to get used to the crown once it is installed. You may feel a bit of discomfort, but it should go away within a week or so.
