A crown usually lasts for years, depending on the health of the surrounding tissue. We have various options available for materials including porcelain, gold and combinations of the two. Dr. Schell and Dr. Noble will discuss with you their recommendation, based on your specific need.

    Generally, our crown procedure is performed over two visits. On your first visit, we remove damaged tooth structure, rebuild the tooth with a bonded core filling material, and shape it for a proper fit. We then make a temporary acrylic restoration that fits on your tooth to protect it between visits. We also take impressions and photographs and send them to the dental lab where your crown will be made. A few weeks later, at your second visit, we replace the temporary crown with your custom crown, evaluate the fit, make any necessary adjustments, then permanently cement your new crown in place.
