The Dental Crown Procedure
One of our skilled dentists will first x-ray your tooth to check for the extent of damage or decay. If needed, we may treat the decay or perform root canal therapy before placing a crown.
The procedure for placing crowns is simple and straightforward:
After administering local anesthesia, one of our reliable dentists in St. Catharines, ON will first prepare the tooth enamel. We do this by carefully grinding down the tooth structure to make space for the crown.
After filing down the enamel, we will take precise impressions of the tooth to send to a lab to fabricate the crown. Traditional crowns cover the tooth until the gum line, while ¾ crowns cover a portion of the tooth. ¾ crowns are suitable for teeth that continue to retain a solid structure.
Our experienced dentists at Girardi Dental will place a temporary crown on the tooth for a short-term duration until the permanent one is ready.
We will replace the temporary crown with a metal, all-ceramic, all-porcelain, or porcelain-fused-to-metal crown, and use dental adhesive to bond the crown into place.
We will examine crowns for fit and comfort and may repair, adjust or replace the crown in case of damage or wear.
