Dental Crown Procedure: Step-by-Step

Navigating the Dental Crow Process with Detailed Guidance

In Roseville and Sacramento, patients considering dental crowns often seek clarity about the procedure. At Dr. Paul Binon’s practice, we ensure our patients are fully informed about the dental crown process, from the initial consultation to the final placement. Here’s a detailed walkthrough of the steps involved in getting a dental crown.

Initial Consultation and Dental Examination

Your dental crown journey starts with an initial consultation at our office. During this visit, Dr. Binon conducts a comprehensive oral examination, assessing not only the tooth in question but also the surrounding teeth and gums. This stage may involve taking dental X-rays or other forms of imaging to get a complete view of the tooth’s structure and the underlying bone. This step is crucial in determining the need for a crown and discussing the best options for your specific case.

Tooth Preparation for the Crown

If a dental crown is needed, the next step is preparing the tooth. This preparation involves reshaping the tooth to ensure the crown fits properly. The extent of reshaping depends on the type and condition of the tooth. Once the tooth is reshaped, an impression is taken, either digitally or using a traditional mold, to create an exact model for the crown. This model is sent to a dental lab where your custom crown will be made.

Temporary Crown Fitting

While your permanent crown is being crafted, a temporary crown is placed on the prepared tooth. The temporary crown serves a dual purpose: it protects the tooth and maintains its functionality until the final crown is ready. This interim solution is important for your comfort and oral health.

Fabrication of the Permanent Crown

At the dental lab, your permanent crown is meticulously crafted to match the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth. The fabrication process ensures that the crown blends seamlessly with your smile and meets your functional needs. The choice of material for the crown, whether porcelain, ceramic, or metal alloy, depends on various factors, including the tooth’s location and your aesthetic preferences.

Final Placement of the Crown

When your crown is ready, you’ll return to our office for the final placement. The temporary crown is removed, and the new crown is carefully adjusted for a perfect fit. Dr. Binon ensures that the crown feels comfortable and your bite is correct before permanently cementing it in place. This final step is crucial in ensuring that your new crown functions just like a natural tooth.

Post-Procedure Care and Maintenance

After the crown is placed, Dr. Binon will provide you with guidance on how to care for it. Maintaining good oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups are key to the longevity of your crown. Proper care ensures that your dental crown remains functional and aesthetically pleasing for years to come.
