Dental crowns offer patients near Denver an excellent way to preserve their damaged or severely decayed teeth. Crowns are also ideal for protecting teeth after root canal treatment, which can weaken the tooth's structure. Our dentists also utilize porcelain crowns to complete dental implant placement.
Procedure for Dental Crowns in Denver, CO
In most cases, our Denver dentists at Litvak & Woller Esthetic Comprehensive Dentistry can place a crown in just two visits. When you visit us for your first dental crown appointment, we will take digital x-rays of your teeth. With x-rays, we can determine if there are any issues that we need to address before placing the crown.
Generally, our dentists need to remove a small portion of the tooth to prepare it to receive the crown. However, that's not always necessary. For some patients, we may need to build up the damaged tooth instead for an appropriate fit.
Once we've prepared the tooth, we'll take impressions to create a mold to send to the dental lab. The lab will then use the mold to create a custom dental crown.
Before leaving your first appointment, we will provide you with a temporary crown, which you will wear until your permanent crown has been designed.
We will place the final crown on your tooth during the second appointment and ensure a perfect fit.
