We offer crowns at Carp Dental, which are tooth-shaped caps that are placed over teeth to restore their shape, size, appearance, and strength.
If you are preparing to get a dental crown in Norristown, Pennsylvania, you can expect to finish the treatment within two visits. The first visit will involve your dentist examining and preparing your tooth. X-rays will be taken to evaluate the tooth’s roots and surrounding bone. If you have extensive decay or risk of infection in the tooth, Dr. Carp, Dr. Yu, and Dr. Goldwater may perform a root canal treatment to prepare your tooth for the crown. If not, your tooth will be gently filed and shaved down to allow the crown to fit. Impressions of your tooth will be sent to a lab and a crown will be custom made for you.
The second visit involves fitting the permanent crown and making sure it is the proper size and color. If you are happy with the fit and appearance, your dentist will permanently cement the crown into place.
