What is the procedure for a dental crown?

Depending on the type of dental crown you opt for, the procedure for a dental crown can take a single appointment or multiple. In most cases, a dental crown procedure involves numbing the treatment area, removing the decay, reshaping it to ensure a snug fit for the crown, and taking impressions. If it is a traditional tooth crown appointment, a temporary crown is placed while the permanent crown is made. If it is a same-day dental crown appointment, the permanent crown will be placed and sealed, and no temporary crown is needed.

Does getting a dental crown hurt?

Getting a dental crown is often quicker than other restorative dentistry procedures. While getting a dental crown typically doesn’t hurt, as local anesthesia is used to numb the area, some discomfort, tenderness, or sensitivity might be experienced after the numbness wears off. Most of the time, the symptoms will subside and can be managed by being gentle with the area

What are the different types of dental crowns?

Different types of dental crowns allow our team to select the best material for your oral health needs. The different types of dental crowns include porcelain, ceramic, metal, and resin. Out of different types of dental crowns, ceramic and porcelain provide a natural appearance. No matter which option, patients looking for dental crowns near me can get a crown made with the highest quality materials at High Point Dentistry!
