How does a dentist make a dental crown for a patient?

The appointments for dental crowns usually require at least 2 visits:

1st appointment:

  • Involves shaping the tooth, taking its impression and placing temporary crowns.
  • Depending on the amount of crowns needed, the dental laboratory will fabricate the crowns in 2 to 10 days.

2nd appointment:

  • The dentist will permanently cement the finished crowns in place.
