Our dentists at Sunrise Dental of Auburn may recommend that you receive dental crowns in Auburn, WA if any of the following relate to you:
It usually takes two office visits to get your tooth completely ready for a crown. During your first visit, our dentists in Auburn, WA, will thoroughly examine your tooth and get it prepped for the crown. Depending on the health of your tooth, you may be required to get a root canal treatment before you receive a dental crown, especially if you have tooth decay or injury to the connective and nerve tissue in your teeth.
Next, our dentists will file down your tooth to make room for the crown. Then impressions of your teeth are taken using a paste or putty. A dental laboratory will receive your dental impressions. A temporary crown is placed to provide cover and protection for your tooth until you receive your permanent crown. Your permanent crown is placed during your second office visit. Our dentists will remove your temporary crown then administer a local anesthetic to numb the tooth before cementing the permanent crown to your tooth.
