Placement Of Dental Crowns
Usually the placement of dental crown is performed within two appointments. During the first visit, Dr. Desiree Yazdan will examine the affected tooth and gum, take X-rays to assess the extent of the damage. Any decay or damage will be removed and the tooth reduced to the needed dimensions. After that, an impression of the tooth will be taken, a temporary crown will be placed that will protect the tooth until it‘s replaced by the permanent crown. The second visit will be dedicated to the crown placement.
