Crowns may be made out of various materials, including metals, porcelain, and porcelain-fused-to-metal.

The Process of Getting a Dental Crown

To start the crown process, we will prepare your tooth by removing a bit of its enamel. This allows the crown to fit in comfortably with the rest of your bite. Next, we will take impressions of your teeth.

The traditional crown process involves coordination with a local dental lab, which fabricates the restoration while the patient wears a temporary crown for a few weeks. However, because we have CEREC technology in our office, we are often able to provide same-day crowns. After taking a digital impression of your teeth, we can use our in-office milling machine to create a beautiful, permanent crown.
