Dental crowns in Riverdale, New York, are great dental restorations that can finally give you the beautiful and healthy smile you deserve! If you’re planning on improving your oral health with this product, our Riverdale Oral Health and Implant Center team is happy to help you prepare for your appointment by explaining the steps involved in the treatment. Those steps are:

-Step 1: First, your dentist will need to prepare the tooth for the crown. After your tooth and surrounding gum tissue are numbed with a local anesthetic, your dentist will file the tooth down to create room for the crown.

-Step 2: Your dentist will then take impressions of your tooth once it’s the right size and shape. Next, the impressions will be sent to the dental lab where your crown will be created. As you wait, you will be given a temporary crown.

-Step 3: When your permanent crown is ready, your dentist will remove your temporary crown and will check the size, shape, and color of the new crown. If it fits perfectly in your mouth with no problems, your dentist will permanently cement the crown into place.

Now that you know all about the steps involved in the treatment, you are ready for your appointment! If you have any questions or if you would like to learn more, please feel free to call 718-548-3353 today and talk to Dr. Sidney Adler or a member of our dental team. We are more than happy to help you in any way we can!
