Dental Crown What to Expect
The Dental Crown Process
Dr. Barakat will first perform a comprehensive consultation and assessment at his Stittsville, ON dentist office to determine if dental crowns are right for you. He will examine the teeth, gums, mouth, and jaw joints to diagnose your condition. After that, Dr. Barakat will prepare an individualized treatment plan that addresses the health concerns as well as the cosmetic goals.
Preparation of Teeth
Next, Dr. Barakat will prepare the tooth for the dental crown. Old fillings or old crowns will be removed to create a solid foundation for the dental crown. He will take digital images of the prepared tooth and use those images to fabricate a custom dental crown.
Final Placement of Dental Crown
Dr. Barakat will try on the dental crown to ensure a proper fit. Once both you and he are satisfied, the dental crown will be permanently bonded to the tooth and gently polished.
Same-day Dental Crowns
Using sophisticated CEREC technology, Dr. Barakat is able to complete most dental crown procedures in a single visit to his Stittsville, ON cosmetic dentistry office. CEREC technology combines 3-D digital imaging, CAD/CAM technology, and a sophisticated in-office milling unit to design and create a custom fit dental crown.
Same-day dentistry saves the patient time and money and allows their tooth to remain protected and fully functional.
