Dental crowns are restorations that cover damaged or weak teeth and keep them from enduring further damage. In other cases, they are also used to change the shape and size of a misshapen or a chipped tooth, treat severely worn out or weak teeth, and bring about an aesthetic makeover. However, the process of getting a crown is easier said than done.
The dentist would start with a diagnosis, take multiple scans and x-rays of the teeth, and send over the data to a dental laboratory for fabricating it. Meanwhile, they will fit your tooth with a temporary crown (which is usually ill-fitting), wait for a couple of weeks for the crown to be finished, and then get it bonded to the tooth during a second or third appointment. All this seems pretty hectic, doesn’t it?
