The impression material sets in about five minutes. Then it is removed. we will also take an impression of the teeth above or below the tooth that will receive the crown. The purpose is to make sure the crown will fit into your normal bite.
  • The impressions are sent to the lab, where the crown is made. During that time, you can have a temporary crown placed.

  • You shouldn't feel any discomfort or sensitivity after a crown is placed. However, if your tooth has not had a root canal it will still contain the nerve. You may therefore have some temporary sensitivity to heat and cold. If you notice pain or sensitivity when you bite down, contact us. Usually this means that the crown is too high. This can be adjusted easily.
  • You may notice a thin, dark line next to the gumline on your crowned tooth if you look very closely in the mirror, particularly if you have a PFM crown. This dark line is the metal of the crown showing through and is normal.
  • A crowned tooth is protected from decay, except for the gum line. We may prescribe a high-fluoride gel for you to use every night to protect against decay. A crown does not protect against gum disease. You should continue practicing good oral hygiene.
