It generally requires two appointments to complete a dental crown treatment:

1st Tooth prep: at this appointment we numb the area, trim the tooth all around until the space needed is approach. Any decay will also be removed, and a buildup will be done in case it needs it. A cord must be placed in the gingiva, then an impression will be taken to provide an exact mold of the crown. We’ll take a bite registration and a temporary crown will be placed meanwhile the lab fabricates the final crown (it usually takes 7 business days).

2nd Cementation: at this appointment we numb the area, remove the temporary crown, fit the final crown, take an x-ray to see if its sealing properly. Adjustments may also be done for a properly the fit and a right bite. If the fit and color is approved, the crown will be cemented in place.
