  • Are other treatments recommended before this procedure?

    We recommend teeth whitening prior to having any restorative treament done. Teeth whitening can only lighten your natural teeth, thus it is best to get the desired colour you wish to have before having restorations, veneers, crowns and bridgework done.

  • What does the procedure involve?

    Your crown treatment procedure will uually require two separate appointments. Crown-stagesDuring your first visit, we will remove all the old or defective filling, any decayed tooth structure, then bond in a solid core material, and shape it to the proper form and capture it in a dental mold, followed by making and placing a temporary crown. During the second visit we’ll actually place your permanent dental crown.

    After your first visit you will leave with a plastic temporary crown. It is important that you take care of it. You may brush and floss the area but we recommend that you do not chew hard, or very sticky foods on it to prevent your temporary crown from coming off.

    Once you have the final crown seated you may return to normal chewing activities.
