Flawless Tooth Restoration with Dental Crowns
The Dental Crown Procedure: What to Expect
Undergoing a dental crown procedure typically involves two visits to the dentist’s office.
Tooth Examination and Preparation
The process begins with a thorough dental examination. The dentist will inspect and clean your teeth, preparing them for a smooth crown fitting. In cases where the tooth is extensively damaged or decayed, we’ll remove the affected areas to allow the crown to effectively shield the tooth from further harm.
Crafting the Perfect Crown
We then use dental putty to create an impression of your teeth, which serves as a blueprint for crafting your bespoke full porcelain crowns. During this period, you’ll be fitted with a temporary crown to protect your teeth until your next visit. For those replacing a missing tooth with an implant, an impression of the implant and adjacent teeth is taken to custom-design your crown.

My mother had a tooth come out yesterday. I called Terry County Dental this morning and they gave us an appointment this morning. Dr.Cauley put the tooth back in and cemented it.
I appreciate that they got Mother in so quickly and fixed the problem.
