Why does getting a crown require two separate appointments?

Crown | Rockville, MD | Gladnick Family & Cosmetic DentistryCustom Made Tooth Restoration in Rockville

Getting these restorations made requires two steps and two appointments. 

At the first appointment, we'll prepare your tooth for the crown, shaping it so that the crown fits well among your existing dentistry for a natural appearance. We'll then take images and impressions, which will be sent with our doctor's precise instructions to the dental lab. You'll be fitted with a temporary crown to protect the shaped tooth and your comfort. 

It will take a couple of weeks for the lab to create your crown and send it back to us. At this point, we will ask you to return to the office so that we can place your personalized crown. During this appointment, we'll look over the crown with you, then remove the temporary crown and check the fit. Once you and your doctor are both happy with the results, we will cement the permanent crown in place.
