A quick, professional consultation where your dentist will carry out an assessment of your tooth and check if it’s suitable for a crown or another procedure. If your tooth is severely damaged, it may be that it needs additional treatment prior to a crown being fitted. We’ll also take X-rays to assess the health of the root.
Your Preparation Appointment
To make the treatment pain free, your dentist will numb the tooth and prepare it using a dental handpiece, so that we can do a 3D scan of the tooth. We share that with our state-of-the-art lab who will start preparing the crown to your chosen shade. A temporary crown is placed to protect the tooth until your final crown is ready to be fitted, usually about two weeks later.
Your Fit Appointment
At your final appointment, we’ll numb the tooth again to make you comfortable. The temporary crown will be removed and the final crown fitted, and the fitting tested. If you’re happy, the dentist will then affix it permanently. After a bite check to ensure you’re completely happy, you and your new smile can leave.
