Whether you’re having a lab-made or same day crown placed, the process is very similar. First, Dr. Miller will clean your mouth and numb the treatment area. Next, your tooth will be trimmed and any damaged or decayed enamel will be removed to prepare your tooth for the placement of a crown.
If you are receiving a lab-made crown, impressions will be made of your teeth and sent to an outside dental lab where your crown will be created. When the crown is sent to our office, you’ll come in for your last appointment to have your crown bonded into place permanently.
For a same-day crown, Dr. Miller will use a special powder coating and 3D CEREC scanner to take detailed images of your mouth. Then, he will upload this information into our CEREC machine to create your dental crown. Once the crown has been completed, he will check it for proper size, fit and color, and bond it into place permanently.
