Initially, we will perform a physical exam of your mouth and teeth. Images of your mouth may be taken as well as an impression of your teeth to create crowns that will fit your natural teeth. Our team will go over any concerns detailing the procedure and the benefits of crown placement.
Before the procedure begins, the affected area will be treated with local anesthesia. Your new dental crown will be attached on top of the chipped, cracked or decayed tooth. It will be cemented into place for maximum support and function.
