Dental Crown Process from Start to Finish

December 14, 2022
Posted By: Dr. Wade Kifer

You may need a dental crown in Fayetteville, AR, for various reasons. The process for crown placement depends on the reason you need the restoration. For example, crowns work to strengthen weak or broken teeth, but they also play a role in tooth replacement.

Dental Crown Process in Restorative Dentistry

One of the most common reasons we place a dental crown is to stabilize a tooth after root canal infection treatment or due to trauma or deep decay. And we offer same-day dental crowns in Fayetteville!

Step #1 Your dentist recommends a dental crown to restore your tooth following root canal treatment or due to decay and trauma.

Step #2 Your dentist prepares the tooth for crowning and impressions.

Step #3 We take digital impressions of the tooth, send the results to our onsite milling machine, and wait while the crown is printed right here in our dental office.

Step #4 Your dentist makes final adjustments to shading and fit before cementing the crown over your tooth.

After crown placement, you can enjoy your restored smile without worry. The crown protects a crumbling tooth from further damage. You can also use a dental crown to conceal tooth flaws in cosmetic dentistry.

Dental Crown Use in Tooth Replacement

A dental crown tops a single dental implant post in smile restoration. Additionally, dental crowns fix a bridge (one or two restoring teeth) to healthy adjacent teeth.

These types of fixed restorations restore your bite and guard against tooth migration.
