A dental crown, also known as a cap, is a shell that encases the surfaces of a tooth, restoring its size, shape, and strength.
Dr. Trinh must remove 1-2mm of the tooth during crown preparation, then take an initial impression and manufacture the crown. If you must wait for your crown, a temporary crown will be placed on your tooth and replaced once your permanent crown is ready. The crown may need to be slightly adjusted to ensure an optimal fit, then Dr. Trinh will cement it to your tooth. Only a dentist can remove it once bonded in place.
