How it's done
The first visit involves reshaping the tooth and taking impressions to create the crown. Typically a portion of your tooth will have to be removed for the crown to fit properly. After the Dr. Rhodes reshapes your tooth, she will use a special material to create an impression of it. This impression will be sent to a dental laboratory to be made into a permanent crown. Before sending you home, she will provide you with a temporary crown to cover your tooth in between visits.
When you return, she will have received the permanent crown from the laboratory. Dr. Rhodes will remove the temporary crown and fit the new permanent one. Before cementing the permanent crown in place, she will ensure that it fits comfortably and matches the color of your teeth.
