The Porcelain Crown Process at Pecan St. Dental, Pflugerville
Consultation and Examination: During the initial appointment, Dr. Prab will evaluate your oral health, discuss your treatment goals, and determine if a dental crown is the right solution for you.
Tooth Preparation: The tooth receiving the crown will be prepared by removing a portion of the tooth structure to create space for the crown. If necessary, a filling or root canal therapy may be performed.
Impressions and Customization: Impressions of your teeth will be taken to create a custom crown that fits perfectly. These impressions are sent to a dental laboratory, where your crown will be fabricated.
Temporary Crown Placement: While your permanent crown is being made, a temporary crown will be placed to protect your tooth and maintain its functionality.
Final Crown Placement: Once your permanent crown is ready, the temporary crown will be removed, and the new crown will be placed and cemented onto your tooth, restoring its original shape, size, and function.
