What Is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a sort of “cap” dentists place over a weakened tooth. It protects, covers, and restores the treated area by covering it with durable, enamel-colored material.

Our office will first perform an oral exam to ensure a crown treatment is right for you. That way, we’ll have a sense of your unique dental situation.

The Dental Crown Process

In general, getting a dental crown takes a few visits. These are made up of three major steps: consultation, prep work, and the final placement.

At the consultation, you’ll discuss your treatment ideas with Dr. Castleberry. In particular, you’ll have a chance to bring up your smile goals, medical history, and procedure-related questions. Doing so will allow our team to see how best to meet your needs.

After the consult, our office will prep your tooth for its crown. This work involves removing bits of enamel, thus ensuring the prosthetic sits securely. We’ll then take a dental impression for a local lab, which will use that model to craft your final restoration. This crafting takes time, though, so you’ll wear a temporary crown for a while.

Once the permanent crown is done, you’ll return to our office for the placement. Then, we’ll polish the prosthetic and make final adjustments.
