What Does Getting a Crown or Bridge Involve?
Crown or bridge dental procedures usually require two appointments. Your first appointment will include taking several highly accurate molds (or impressions) that will be used to create your custom crown. A mold will also be used to create a temporary crown which will stay on your tooth for approximately two weeks until your new crown is fabricated by a dental laboratory.
While the tooth is numb, the dentist will prepare the tooth by removing any decay and shaping the surface to properly fit the crown. Once these details are accomplished, your temporary crown will be placed with temporary cement and your bite will be checked to ensure you are biting properly.
At your second appointment your temporary crown or bridge will be removed, the tooth will be cleaned, and your new crown will be carefully placed to ensure the spacing and bite are accurate.
You will be given post-operative instructions and encouraged to have regular dental visits to check your new crown.
Full Round House Crown & Bridge
A Full Round House Crown & Bridge is often a better solution for full-mouth teeth replacement than an All-on-4 procedure. By using 6 to 8 implants and 12 units of bridge work, it is a more durable and very natural looking solution. And at Appearance Dental, it costs the same as All-on-4!
