On your first visit, the dentist will take a few X-rays to evaluate the roots of the damaged tooth and surrounding bone. If the tooth is severely decayed, or if there is risk of injury or infection to the tooth’s pulp, a root canal may be recommended before placing the crown.

Otherwise, the actual process entails:
  • Preparation of the affected teeth
  • Taking the impression
  • Placement of a temporary crown
  • Construction of your all-porcelain crown
  • Final placement of your custom all-porcelain crown

When you are looking to improve your smile, all-porcelain crowns are a lovely and natural looking choice. To find out more about the procedure, or talk to our dentists about the specifics of your case, please call our office at 512-872-3658. We’re always ready to help.
