Do you have an unhealthy or unattractive tooth? If so, it’s time to consider your restoration options. Fortunately, Dr. [doctor-name] and our dental team have some beneficial treatments that can improve your oral health as well as enhance your smile. One of those treatments is a dental crown restoration.
To help you know a little more about dental crowns in Roswell, Georgia, we would be happy to explain the process of placing one over your tooth.
First, Dr. Samy Samaan will need to prepare the tooth so it can securely hold the crown. This step isn’t painful because he will numb your tooth and surrounding gums. After your mouth is numbed with a local anesthetic, your dentist will shave the tooth enamel to create room for the crown.
Once your tooth is the perfect shape and size, your dentist will make an impression of your tooth and the surrounding area and will send that impression to a professional dental lab. The lab technicians will make a dental crown that fits perfectly in your smile. During this process, your dentist will give you a temporary crown so that tooth can remain functional while you wait for your new crown.
When your new crown is ready and sent back to your dentist, you will come back into Royal Dental Spa to have it placed over the tooth. Your dentist will remove the temporary crown and will make sure the size, fit and appearance of the new crown is exactly as expected. If the new crown is perfect, he will secure it into place with dental-grade cement.
