How Many Appointments Are Required For Dental Crown?


Dental Crown takes two visits to prepare and fit.

The crown process includes preparing the teeth, fabricating the restoration and placing the crown. The entire process is divided into two visits.

The first appointment for dental crown

Before starting definite treatment, a close up digital photograph with DSLR camera is taken with the tab of shade guide to match exact shade of new prosthesis with your remaining natural teeth. During the first appointment, the tooth is prepared for the crown. The tooth must be shaped before a crown is placed, and this includes removing the damaged area and some of the healthy tooth structure. The amount of structure removed depends on the location of the tooth and the material to be used for the crown. Then an digital impression of the teeth is captured using a intra-oral scanner ant sends it online to a dental lab to make a customized restoration. 

This again is an integral step in the dental crown treatment process as it ensures your new crown will enable you to bite normally. Then temporary crown is cemented to protect the tooth. This first appointment can take up to 60 minutes. However, many patients are done in less than an hour. The length of time depends on the location of tooth, mouth opening and difficulty level of tooth to be prepared.

Second appointment for dental crown

This process of the dental crown fabrication can take approximately a 1 week, and this is why you are unable to have a same-day dental crown treatment. The next procedure is begun by removing the temporary crown and cleaning the cement off the tooth. Then the fitting of the crown is evaluated. Then the crown is bonded with special luting cement to the tooth. The second visit usually takes around 20 minutes to complete. However, it can take 30 minutes or longer.
