Treatment Procedure

A crowning procedure requires two appointments. At the first appointment the tooth is prepared by circumferential reduction to make room for the crown. An impression (or, mould) is then taken of the prepared tooth for fabrication at a laboratory, and a plastic temporary crown fitted for the interim period. Laboratory fabrication takes 3 weeks for 'Procera' crowns, and 2 weeks for all other crown types. At the subsequent visit, the temporary crown is removed and the final crown is permanently cemented into place.
