A dental crown is a powerful, beautiful and dependable dental restoration that can secure an injured or decaying tooth. To help you understand more about dental crowns in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Dr. Backiel and Associates is delighted to offer the details of the process of placing a dental crown.
First, Dr. Backiel and Dr. Sharkey will prepare the tooth for the crown. This involves numbing your mouth with a local anesthetic and trimming the tooth’s enamel to make room for the crown.
When your tooth is ready, our dentists will make an impression of your tooth and the surrounding teeth of your bite. You’ll be fitted with a temporary crown while we will send the impressions to a professional dental lab where your permanent crown will be made to flawlessly fit your smile.
When your new crown is complete, you will come back to our office so it can be installed. We will double check that the new crown fits in your mouth by checking the size, shape and color. Then Dr. Backiel and Dr. Sharkey will secure it over the tooth with dental-grade cement.
Would you like to enhance your smile with a dental crown in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania? If so, just call our office at 267-514-8100 and schedule an appointment for a consultation. We look forward to meeting with you!
