When a tooth’s structure is compromised, a crown rebuilds it. A crown is usually made of ceramic or a composite material. Getting a crown generally requires multiple appointments to complete.


Step 1

At the first appointment, your doctor will take an impression

Step 2

Next, the tooth is prepared to make room for the crown.

Step 3

Your dentist will take a second impression of the prepared tooth, and put in a temporary crown while your final restoration is being made by a dental laboratory.

Step 4

When the crown is ready, your doctor will make final adjustments and cement it into place.

Step 5

Your tooth is restored to optimal shape and function.
