How is a Dental Crown Made?
Dr. Kuske will get you nice and numb so that you will be comfortable through the entire procedure. Once you are numb she will come in and reduce the size of the tooth so that there is room for the lab to make your new tooth crown. An impression will be made so the lab has an exact replica of your tooth. Your temporary dental crown will be cemented.
The impression will be sent to the lab where they will hand make a crown to perfectly fit your mouth. They will make it out of the material that you and Dr. Kuske choose. In about two weeks your crown will have been made and is ready to placed. At this appointment your temporary will be removed and your new crown will be placed. We will take and x-ray and examine the crown to make sure it has a perfect fit. Then the crown will be fitted into place. We will make sure the bite feels great and the tooth crown is polished.
