One thought on “What can I expect during a dental crown procedure?

    Depending on the condition of the tooth in question, it might first need a filling to help restore enough of the tooth so that the crown has a fewthing to hold onto. To begin the procedure, your dentist will use a local anesthesia to help minimize any pain or discomfort. While few people look forward to having dental procedures performed, knowing what to expect in advance can often help ease anxiety and make you feel more prepared. Next, your dentist will make room for the crown by shaving the tooth down; then, he will make an impression of the affected tooth. To ensure that the crown matches the natural color of your teeth as closely as possible, the dentist will use a shade guide or take pictures to send to the lab technician. Then, a temporary crown will be placed on the tooth, concluding the first appointment.
