If you are about to fix an unattractive, decayed, or unhealthy tooth with a dental crown in Glendale, New York, then our Boutique Dental, P.C. team is more than happy to tell you what to expect during treatment so you can be ready!

When you come into our office and meet with your dentist, you can expect the following steps:

Step 1: Your dentist will examine the tooth by taking a variety of dental X-rays. The X-rays will help your dentist check the health and condition of the tooth’s roots and the surrounding bones.

Step 2: Your dentist will then numb the tooth and surrounding area with a local anesthetic. Once you are numb, she will trim the outer layer of your tooth to allow room for the crown.

Step 3: Once your tooth is the correct size and shape, your dentist will use a paste or putty to make an impression of your tooth. Then, she will send that impression to the dental lab where your new crown will be created. While you wait for your new crown to be made, your dentist will place a temporary crown over your tooth.

Step 4: When your new crown is ready, our dental team will call you and have you come back into our office. When you arrive, your dentist will remove your temporary crown and will cement your new crown into place.
