If you’re about to correct your smile with a dental crown in Fishers, Indiana, our My Dental Care team is more than happy to tell you what to expect with your treatment. That way, you will feel more relaxed, safe, and comfortable in the dental chair. When you’re at our office, you can expect the following steps:
-Step 1: First, your dentist will need to prepare the tooth for the crown. After your tooth and surrounding gum tissue are numbed with a local anesthetic, your dentist will file the tooth down to create room for the crown.
-Step 2: Once your tooth is the right size and shape, your dentist will make impressions of your teeth and will send those impressions to a dental lab. The lab technicians will create a restoration perfect for your smile. While you wait for your crown to be created, you will be given a temporary crown.
-Step 3: When your dental crown is ready, you will come back into our office to have it placed. Your dentist will remove the temporary crown and will check the size, fit, and appearance of the new crown. If everything exceeds expectations, your dentist will permanently cement the crown into place.
