How long does it take to get a dental crown?

Getting a dental crown is a process that usually requires two visits to our Charlotte dental office spaced about two to three weeks apart. The first visit involves preparation and planning, and the second involves delivery, adjustment, and placement of your new crown.

During the first visit, Dr. Harlow alters the shape of your tooth to accommodate your new crown. Next, we take impressions that we use to design a model of the tooth we’re treating as well as the temporary that you will wear while your new crown is being custom-crafted.

At this time, Dr. Harlow will also consult with you to choose a shade for your dental restoration that will blend in with the rest of your smile.

We then send the tooth model, along with our color specifications, to a dental lab that fabricates your new crown.

It usually takes about two weeks to get your final crown back from the lab. We’ll schedule a second dental appointment so we can check the restoration for fit and make adjustments as necessary so that it doesn’t interfere with the way you chew and speak. The final step involves polishing the tooth crown and attaching it securely onto your tooth.
