A crown is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings used in other types of restorations.REASONS FOR PLACING CROWNS
A crown procedure requires two appointments. Your first appointment will include taking a highly accurate impression that will be used to create your new custom crown. A custom shade will be chosen for your custom crown. A temporary crown will be made to stay on your tooth for approximately two weeks while your custom crown is being made.
During your first appointment, Dr. Ganeshappa will prepare the tooth by removing any existing decay and failing fillings while the tooth is numb. She will properly shape the tooth for your custom crown and will place a temporary crown.
During your second appointment, your temporary crown will be removed, the tooth will be cleaned, and your new crown will be carefully placed to ensure that you have proper spacing and that your bite is accurate.
